The above is how a lot of my projects start, fresh cut lumber
A custom-made A-frame blackboard made for a customer to be used at her daughter's wedding.
All recycled materials. The frame is from pallet wood I planed down and sanded to find the beauty that was hiding underneath. The blackboard is 1/4 plywood reclaimed, sanded down, and painted with chalkboard paint. Even the chain was reclaimed from a shelf that was suspended from the ceiling.
Here is a toy box that was made for a very special 3 year old girl.
A desk on a budget. The materials for the this desk were nothing more than cheap 2x4 studs and plywood. Its hard to tell in the pictures but using the Shou Sugi Ban technique I burnt the wood to a good char and then used a sanding wheel to remove all the loose material causing an amazing texture and look to it.
