Workshop community update #80

 

Hi all,

 

It has been fantastic to see Workshop community members respond to @Kim2's woodworking challenge in recent weeks.

 

After making a beautiful rectangular planter box, Kim fell in love with some heart-shaped wooden succulent planters and wondered if handy community members might like to tackle the project. @Wayne has already made some great progress.

 

Other popular Workshop posts from the past few weeks have included:

 

@MikeBenstead introduced himself to the community and his fantastic period home he is renovating on a “shoestring budget”

 

@LePallet got some expert advice to help bring his lawn back

 

Members provided assistance to @Smasht who has a tricky problem with a wood panelled bedroom

 

@woodalwaysworks has cleverly converted a spare room into a kids wonderland

 

Members helped @Rich with identifying a root-rot problem

 

@Scally96 is looking for suggestions about what to do with an old brick fireplace

 

@CaroF got advice about painting a new cubby house

 

@aly received suggestions about growing herbs at this time of year

 

@Millsylad is tackling a fun project converting an old row boat into a sandpit

 

Newcomer @saroadie is looking for barbecue exhaust options for a renovated outdoor entertainment area

 

@Simon shared his experiences rejuvenating outdoor furniture on a budget

 

@GardenerJohn wondered why you need to test water pressure before installing a new garden irrigation system.

 

Meanwhile on the gallery, popular photos have included a round coffee table from @Beachbox, cladded planter boxes by @maknilsin, @LePallet's reclaimed wood breakfast table, and a tepee kids bed with trundle from @woodalwaysworks

Thanks again for your fantastic contribution to the community and we look forward to seeing more of your projects and great advice.

 

And a final congratulations and best wishes to Workshop’s @Yorky88, who has taken the big step of making his woodworking business a full time venture. By the looks of this photo, Marty is off to a cracking start…
