My latest job is a commission to design and build a storage unit for firewood. The design process wasn’t anything to shout about except it needed to be quite shallow as the firewood wasn’t going to be any longer than about 250mm.
It’s made from treated sawn wood and all the cut edges have been treated. I’ve added a centre shelf to aid in stable stacking of the short lengths of wood.
It’s all packaged on a delivery trolley ready for delivery next week.
I’ve put my shop into ‘Holiday Mode’ today so I have taken my last on-line order for this year. My last order was an ‘Ox Yoke Puzzle’ and will be posted tomorrow the 17th Dec.
I’ve closed the shop because the last postal date for second class mail is 18th Dec – after this parcels might not get to the purchaser before Christmas. So to be safe and avoid disappointment I’ve shut the shop early. It’s still viewable but you can’t purchase anything on-line. I will be re-opening after Christmas.
Hand made Christmas tree baubles, made from wood and sea urchins. Check out my video page to see how I make these.https://plaustrum.co.uk/videos/ The wooden centres are hollow, making the decoration very light so they will hang nicely on a Christmas tree or can be used in other places to bring a little bit of tradition to your Christmas decorations. Currently available in my shop. https://plaustrum.co.uk/shop/
4 Snowmen turned from wood with top hats and handknitted scarfs. This is not something I would normally make but with Christmas being a fun time of year I thought I’d have a bit of fun in making these Snowmen. They are available in my shop.
I made these Santas awhile ago and only recently got them out for sale. Hand made on my scroll saw and painted with acrylic. The placard Santa’s holding is painted with chalkboard paint so it can be written on with chalk. Great for counting down to the big day.
I do occasionally take on requests for special ‘one-off’ projects like this wishing well below. I don’t do many because they become expensive without the ability to spread the design costs over a batch.
New Start – New Layout – It’s been a while since I posted or updated my website. Family matters has recently limited my available time to get on the PC. Now I have a little more time so I’m revamping all of my on-line sites. So I’m aiming for a new start and a new layout.
This WordPress blog site is the first one to have a new look.
