These are a few odd things I've made, that don't fit anywhere else on the site.
No great details, just a few pictures.
An old heavy pine kitchen table provided the thick slabs of wood for this unusual plant stand - in the form of a stack of large books.
Hand sanitisation - c1452
Plastic wasn't invented in 1452 and the re-enactors needed a hand washing station. I made this slot-together bowl and water-dispenser stand. Used by real knights in shining armour.
This pot-man looks unhappy about pushing such a heavy load.
When I bought an expensive stainless steel garden fork, I assumed it would be strong and nigh on unbreakable. Not so.
Sadly it wasn't a match for the huge cobblestones that lurked underground.
Not to be daunted, I made it into a planter.
A big old lump of offcut oak made a good solid base, and a small piece of English cherrywood made a shaped shelf for the plant pot. It was just a matter of detaching the handle and re-inserting it through an angled hole in the platform.
Voila! Exit one broken fork - enter one quirky designer plant stand.
A miniature wishing well, made from scraps of old oak sideboard.
Graceful bowl stand
Based on the shape of a medieval folding chair, I made a stand for a plant bowl using pieces cut from an old oak dining table top.
I've made various mushroom shapes from scraps of old wood and tree-roots.
Various wooden windmills and spinners
