Stripping paint off a change table, and refinishing in clear coat for some dear friends of mine. . I’m away from my big toys today, so I’m using the belt sander to strip the paint before going down the grades with the random orbital sander. It’s pretty cool - in a pinch, and for small jobs, you can use a belt sander propped on its side as a linisher. . . . . . #themoreyouknow #makedowithwhatyouhave #makita @makitaaustralia #M9400 #beltsander #refinishedfurniture #refinishingfurniture #maktool #thisisgonnabegood #thisisgonnabegreat #adelaide #southaustralia #southaustralianbusiness #ichoosesa #localbusiness #womenwoodworkers #womeninbusiness #woodworkingwomen #womeninwoodworking #womenwoodworkersofig #thisisfun #adsumricherthings

Throwback Thursday time! This was my very first restoration project. I picked up a coffee table at a secondhand shop for $50. Beautiful timber and detailing, but it was in a sorry state. Missing trim, the top was split, glue in the joints letting go, polish all but worn away...I’m glad I still have it. It’s a reminder of how far I’ve come. . . . . . #throwbackthursday #woodworking #woodworkers #furniturerestoration #furnituremakeover #feastwatson #furniturerestoration #oldfurniture #oldfurnituremadenew #oldfurniturelove #restoration #furniturerehab #furniturerepair #furniturerepairs #dontthrowitaway #womenwoodworkers #womenwoodworkersofig #woodworkersofinstagram #woodworkersofig #adelaide #southaustralia #ichoosesa #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #localbusiness #adsumricherthings

I had the itch to create again...and last December’s market shoppers cleared out my stock of cheese/charcuterie boards. . The small one is just Blackwood (but getting creative with grain direction), the large one is QLD Silver Ash, Meranti, Maple, Spotted Gum, and Blackwood. They’ll be up on the #etsy shop soon. . . . . . #etsyshop #etsyseller #etsysellersofinstagram #etsyadelaide #handmadeinaustralia #handmadeinadelaide #cheeseboard #cheeseboards #cheeseboardsofinstagram #charcuterie #charcuterieboard #yonico #woodworking #woodwork #woodworkers #woodworkersofinstagram #woodworkersofig #womenwoodworkers #womenwoodworkersofig #woodworkingwomen #ichoosesa #madeinadelaide #madeinsouthaustralia #adsumricherthings

This is an Adsum Richer Things public service announcement - I am participating in this year’s World’s Greatest Shave. . This is an Australian thing, run by the Leukaemia Foundation (who actually USE their funds for research and support systems, as opposed to “raising awareness”...ಠ_ಠ) .

While AdsumMum is interstate (hi Mum! 👋), AdsumDad and myself went for an archaeological dig...well, cleaning another corner of the workshop. . The newly-liberated space is going to have some shelving units made and placed there. It’s going to house the vintage scaffolding, as well as provide a decent storage solution for all the ‘small’ bits of timber (turning blanks, usable offcuts, small logs, and the like). . . . . . #woodworkers #wood #lumber #lumberstore #lumberstorage #diggingfortreasure #timbercanbetreasure #oohlook #mahogany #jarrah #blackwood #maple #ebony #meranti #workshopcleanup #reclaimingspace #adsumricherthings

Back on this little cabinet restoration. The sanding sealer coat got scuffed back, and a custom mix of @feast_watson Prooftint applied (mainly Oak, with a bit of Cedar and Brown Japan mixed in - and then mixed with reducer). I’m going to be building up the colour over a few applications of this stuff. . . . . . #furniturerestoration #furnituremakeover #furniture #oldfurniture #oldfurniturenewlook #oldfurnituremadenew #vintage #vintagefurniture #loveoldfurniture #woodstain #feastwatson #woodworkers #ichoosesa #learningthetrade #woodwork #colourmatching #reuse #adsumricherthings

With temperatures in Adelaide reaching 38C/100F today by lunchtime, I started early and finished early. .

Adventures in furniture restoration. This little vintage cupboard is made of pine and cedar (judging by the smells after sanding...). Cutting back the old finish, re-filling some holes with wood-filler (they originally had POLYFILLA in them...😵), and applying sanding sealer. It’s still got dings and scrapes, but you don’t want to completely wreck the character of the piece. . . . . . #restoringfurniture #restoration #furniturerestoration #cedar #pine #smellsogood #cabinet #wood #woodworking #woodwork #woodworkerlife #woodworkers #woodworkersofinstagram #woodworkersofig #womenwoodworkers #womenwoodworkersofig #adelaide #southaustralia #ichoosesa #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #womeninsmallbusiness #adsumricherthings

Taking advantage of a comparative lull (hah!) between jobs to do some clearing out. Found these gems! They belonged to my dad (AdsumDad), who ran Adsum Furniture; a flat-pack office furniture) in the late 80s/early 90s.

I FINALLY get to share the news I’ve been sitting on for over a year. Cotto Espresso in Prospect has just reopened after a major renovation...featuring a boatload of work by yours truly! Table tops, bar bench tops, the tea trays, menu clipboards, the coffee machine, water tap handles - even the tiles that the wall menu uses! . I’m very proud of our work here, and I thank Frank and Richard at Cotto Espresso for giving me this opportunity. Adsum Richer Things literally would never have got started without them. Help me return the favour by heading down there for a coffee. 😊❤️ . . . . . #grateful #cafe #coffee #coffeemachine #coffeemachinecustomization #customized #customised #lamarzocco #blackwood #queenslandsilverash #woodworking #woodwork #woodworkersofinstagram #woodworker #woodworkers #woodworkersofig #womenwoodworkers #womenwoodworkersofig #localbusiness #adelaide #southaustralia #madeinadelaide #madeinsouthaustralia #ichoosesa #prospect #cotto #adsumricherthings
