A small three legged stool.

 Life has a way of crowding out the things we like to do with other things we have to do. I have been enjoying my summer and it has been a while since I got a project and video out. I was watching Paul Sellers on youtube the other day and he was doing a demonstration on various techniques in the making of a simple small three legged stool.  http://youtu.be/cItD78Z5Wd8

It looked like such a fun simple project I escaped a few evening into the shop to see what I could come up with.    Some small pieces of maple I had left over and we were on our way.
 I glued up the legs out of 3/4 stock and glued up a panel for the top. Turned the legs on the lathe with a one inch tenon on the tops of the legs.
 All of this was done off of camera as I was not originally planning on making this a video for my channel.  I consider this project a skill builder for  me and I was just enjoying the process more than anything on this project. I hope there is something that you will take away and use in your projects in the future.

A wall shelf for my sons room using repurposed wood from a bunk bed

 A couple years ago I took down a bunk bed that was just on its last legs. Was creaky and wobbly so we got my sons new beds and I disassembled and kept the pieces from the old one. I finally got around to using this wood in a project of a wall shelf for that same room that the bunk bed used to reside. Was a basic, simple project and I enjoyed making it and I think it turned out very nice and definitely will get some good use.

 I use basic mortises for the shelves to go together into the sides of the shelf and then I used a simple pocket hole screw joint to attach the top to the piece. To hang the piece I use a french cleat system built into the top support.
AS you can see I rounded the edges for looks and safety. (It is a little boys room after all. I have no doubt that sooner or later someone will not be jumping on the bed right next to where this shelf will be hanging.)   :)  

Thanks for reading and watching!

Best Regards!

Welcome to my website for the Chris Pine Workshop!

 I have been enjoying posting videos on youtube for more than  year now and the name of my channel is The Chris Pine Workshop.  I should have started a page to go along with my other social media presence a long time ago. I will be using this set to post blog entires and photos to add on to my videos. I enjoy woodworking very much and it has grown to a large part of my life. That includes the community, including on the internet that I participate in.  One of the most accepting and generous groups of people I have ever known have been fellow woodworkers! As a rule not an exception they represent what people should act like and treat each other accordingly.
 I wil be working on the presentation aspects of the page as time goes on.

 SO welcome to my webpage and I look forward to future projects and interactions!


Sincerely
Chris
