Aerial View of Guelph Animated

I’ve been working on this aerial view of Guelph for the past few months, I figured it’d be a neat experiment to jig it as an animation!

New house, new designs

I moved into a new place a little over a week ago. Here’s a couple images from some of the work I’ve done. Along with painting the living room, you can see the coffee table I built and some newly silkscreened pillows. In the bedroom, I built a new bed frame for my queen size bed which took some planning to get the right sizes and attachments, but not much over a day to actually construct.

Reclaimed wood coffee table

So this project was under works for a longer than it should have been…just didn’t have time.
Basically it started a couple summer ago when I had the house’s nasty blue vinyl taken off, and board and a batten put up; I had a couple windows put in and when he put the windows in, I saw there was some really nice old wood from the house frame. I immediately realized I shouldn’t just let the wood go to waste and wanted to make a coffee table. Finally this winter I got around to fixing up and planing the wood. I made the top first. For the supports, I used regular lumber. Once sanded again, I stained and sealed the table. I’m stoked, it’s a gorgeous piece.

Plumbing pipe shelving

I built this plumbing shelf about a year ago. I priced out nice shelves from the usual suspects, and for the most part, a $400 shelf would be made of some awful composite so I set out to make my own plumbing pipe shelf.

Ripping up vinyl flooring

This was a project I did in my home…I love owning old homes. I always wanted to know what was underneath the awful vinyl fake wood floor. I initially took a peak inside the closet and was surprised to see beautiful hardwood underneath the flooring. I went ahead and ripped up the rest in the room. It was quite the initial demolition job which took about a day to pull up all the nails and flooring. From there I rented a drum sander and bought a hand sander to do the edges. I went down in grits about 3 times. The longer part in the process was staining and putting go the polyurethane to seal it in and wait for it to dry. I was done the project in a weekend, then took a couple days of staining and sealing. Results were beautiful though.
