My Nightmare Project! Mid Century Modern Corner Cabinet

In this video I make officially my worst ever project!  A mid century modern style corner cabinet to hold some hifi equipment for our dining room.  I believe the wood is Iroko, which is also known as "poor man's Teak"!  The handles and hinges are solid brass. The legs are a mystery hardwood (probably meranti).

Restoring A Mid Century Modern Credenza / Sideboard

In this video I do some restoration work to a vintage teak mid century modern sideboard / credenza.  I believe it's by either Nathan or Beautility.  This piece of furniture has been in my family for decades.  I needed to refinish the veneer and solid wood areas.  The original ring handles in my opinion made it look quite dated, so I made some new hardwood handles for it which are interchangeable with the old ones to give it an updated look to better fit in a modern/contemporary home setting.

Making A Desk For My Fiancé #AD

In this video I'm working on a DIY custom desk project for my fiancé Ria, which will act as both a "work" desk and a dressing table all in one. Since recently becoming a permanent homeworker, Ria needed a nice desk to work from. She had quite a specific idea about what she wanted, and how it would look - and wanted to incorporate some solid wood to make it less "officey" and give it more of a homely "furniture" feel, so I used some solid beech for the frame and drawer fronts, and made the rest from Medite SMARTPLY's moisture resistant MDF. There were a few challenges along the way!

Making A Rocking Chair (Mid Century Modern) #KPWBCC2020

In this video I make a mid century modern style rocking chair; which could also be an armchair by removing the rockers (or rollers!) for the Karl Pope Woodcraft Build A Chair Challenge 2020.  The chair is made from hardwood salvaged from doors and windows taken from our home renovation works.

Animal Print Coffee Table

In this video I use a salvaged rubberwood hardwood dining table top to make two coffee tables with metal legs.  One with an animal print design (could be tiger print, could be zebra print) engraved in to the top, and one plain, and I used some reclaimed metal legs for the base. 

Vintage Cocktail Cabinet - Furniture Restoration

In this video I work on restoring a vintage cocktail cabinet as a commission for a client. The old finish was badly scratched and I needed to scrape and sand and add a new finish to rejuvenate the wood veneer (which I think is walnut). I also needed to repair a few dings, stop the drawer from sticking and lube up the metal components to get everything running smoothly.  Before and after pics at the end of the video

Coffee Table With Hidden Drawer - Part 2 of 2

#woodworking #coffeetable #drawer

In this video I finish making a panelled design coffee table with a hidden secret drawer using beech and birch for my mum and dad as a gift.  In this video I make a top for the table, table top mounts that allow for expansion and contraction of the wood, and I try to match some existing furniture in their living room (from memory and without seeing it due to the current lockdown measures, which was tricky!).

£1 Piano Stool Makeover

In this video I'll be working on a piano stool which I found at our local recycling centre for something like 50p or £1 - I can't remember...  This is less of a furniture restoration project, and more of a conversion project, I guess - as we had no use for a piano stool - but we were looking for a foot stool to go with our Parker Knoll Armchair which I restored back in December (link below).  The stool needed some repairs and a replacement seat pad, there is an issue with the hinges too.  I reupholstered using some modern foam, wadding and mustard velvet fabric.  The original maker of the s
