    I've always been a pretty big fan of furniture design and I figured others might also be interested. I will do what I can to keep this thread alive, but I'm hoping that it will take on a life of my own, as I get tired of babying threads (as you would notice if you read my surf/garage thread in ch0)

    So anyway -- here's the deal with this thread. Post pictures of shit that belong indoors. Chairs, tables, lamps, desks, book cases and whatever else. Personal projects would be amazing, but I don't think anyone here does too much design.

    decy - i dont know about the uk, but in the us we have salvage wood yards, and the wood is usually pretty cheap. if you are interested you should check something like that out. start out simple and all you'll need is a hand saw, tape measure and a hammer.

    Yea we have salvage/reclaimed timber places, but it still costs money and at the moment I only work job market is do bad my wife can't find work, so not really any spare cash for hobbies. Have spotted old bits of wood in skips etc which was tempted to use as canvas or maybe try carving something.

    he did. he's pretty talented at it but is humble about what he does. dude won't even sell what he makes, just gives it away to family. he went so far as to put an addition onto their house and dropped a ton on equipment to fill it with. i'm asking for a headboard and footboard for my wedding present. it should be ill.

    I showed my wife those pics of the stuff your dad did, she was well impressed. Things like that bookcase sell for a lot, I have seen things that don't look better than his that sell for about £800 ($1500) easy.

    P.E your dads stuff looks really good...

    i've got a few ideas for tables and stuff that i need to get cracking on. the lack of space is really the only issue...

    ripped out a kitchen last month with solid oak doors, and i'm fuckin' kicking myself for not taking them away with me, i could've ripped them doon and laminated them together for something...
