Tegan's wood box and house - pic warning for dialup

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Sun Jun 03, 2007 9:25 pm

Here are a couple of pics of the wood box I built. Made out of pine. I have also now put a chain in to keep the lid from opening too far. Pretty good job I reckoned for a first crack at woodworking in aaagggggeeees! The inside's not all that pretty, but it's just getting firewood in it. The outside is nicer cause it's in my lounge room.

Thought I'd put in some pics to give you an idea of the house too. Here's the sold sign. Weatherboards need a repaint which we've got about a third done.
Image

And an idea of what it looked like inside. There was lovely colours and stencil floral design on the walls and the festiest carpet you've ever seen. And the place was covered in cigar smoke. This was the lounge room.
Image

this is the kitchen from the dining area after painting the walls (but not the cupboards - the kitchen needs a remake, as does the bathroom) and doing the floorboards.

Wow! What a fabulous wood box. I couldn't do anything like that - no way.

I love that carpet in your house! looks like the stuff in our bedroom, hahaha - but those floorboard look amazing :D Must be fun doing up your own house bit by bit and watching it transform - very satisfying.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hey Tegan that box is great!! You can avoid having to put the chair behind the box, by attaching a piece of rope to the lid and the side (inside) the box... :wink: :wink:

Your house looks great too!!!

yeah, i probably could, but I don't have the time or the inclination really, and I don't think people would actually pay $100 for one (cost me about $70 in materials).
