Since I got nabbed by a school for some contract work, my shed time has been greatly reduced. 🙁 . So, I console myself with doing PD work at @cotto_cafe in Prospect, and visiting my tables. 😁 . . . . . #professionaldevelopment #southaustralia #adelaide #teacherlife #mumlife #teachingmum #imisswoodworking #adsumricherthings

Back at work, finally! Picking up tools/consumables, and taking a side trip to visit some of my tabletops. .

Hi friends - my posting has been sporadic of late. Well, the lurgy that Youngest caught last week knocked the entire family (including me) flat.

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.
