Thought I was done with the DIY's, but I just saw this cat tree and I still have an unused monitor arm... so.... 🥲 #DIY

Monitor arm that I could use to make my own cat tree

Ok this is the situation for now. Found a random metal plate that I could use to attach the arms together. 🔥

Now it needs a wooden base, luckily I still have some scrap wood. Then a round ledge around it, made from.. something that can bend? No idea what that should be. 😅

@mensrea not a bad idea!

Hey everyone. I'm trying to keep focused right now. I finally managed to release a video. It's nothing crazy, just a build video of my coffee table.

If you're interested I'd greatly appreciate you checking it out or sharing. Thank you very much.

I want to say something more... But I don't know. Tell the people you love what they mean to you. Make sure they're okay.

@SketchyAbstractions Nice to watch and I love the result! Some day when I have an actual shop and better tools I'd love to make quality stuff like this.

Also appreciated the lack of ads btw, instant subscribe. 🔥

Not gonna lie, this might be the ugliest thing I've ever built 😭

Had a chance to sneak into my friends house today to put the kitchen island together and tile the top. The whole time I was like "trust the process" but yall THE PROCESS IS ALMOST DONE AND IT'S STILL UGLY 😭😭

Uuugh
It's so big and bulky 😭 I thought it would match the other wood tones in his house but it doesn't 😢

Gina,
@Gina@fosstodon.org avatar

@rafa yeah I'm considering staining it

Gina,
@Gina@fosstodon.org avatar

Welp, ran out of tile glue so I just packaged it as best as I could 😅

No one will know what this is

@carloscabello ngl it's pretty satisfying :)

Part 2 out of 3 today, on my friends actual birthday 🥳🎉

Tiled the rest of the table top and made little ledges for the side. 🔥

Cake for the friend
Made ledges with a 45 degree angle that I still have to paint white
Table almost done!

@Jkp lol I laid out the tiles first to measure and then cut the top to size. I got lucky on the side rails though, I added those later.

On today's episode of ✨️ Gina's Unnecessary #DIY Projects ✨️ We're building a kitchen island from wood scraps! Yaaay.

I need to get rid of these old boards and tiles in my shed, and my friend needs a kitchen island. Win win, right? 🔥

Current status: after some advanced maths I realized I don't have enough wood, so now the challenge is to find beams for the legs that look sort of similar to the rest of the wood. Aka "such a fun and cheap project wait how did this still cost me €100?" 💸💸💸

The table top (still had to be cut to size here)
The inspo ✨️
The kitchen that will be blessed by this beautiful island

Problem #2: Pocketholes aren't a thing in Europe. "Just pre-drill at an angle and you'll be fine." Which to be fair, sort of works. But it looks awful and it feels super unsturdy.

Also I accidentally drilled a hole in the good side of the board, so now the ugly side will be on the outside 🥲🥲

Drilling holes at an angle feels so flimsy 😭 also my drill bit isnt long enough to reach into the table leg
True craftmanship

@cbrooklyn112 @ottaross already did 🥲

Gina,
@Gina@fosstodon.org avatar

@cbrooklyn112 think this can be salvaged? Hopefully it won't be too noticable with the table top hanging over it and a towel rack in front 🥲

@j3rn i'm not gonna vanish this thing 😂

We're getting there.. very slowly 🐌

@fahrni a kitchen island 🙂

Gina,
@Gina@fosstodon.org avatar

@fahrni now the complication is.. it still needs to be moved to my friends house. I'd love to finish it now, but then how will I transport it?

Gina,
@Gina@fosstodon.org avatar

I'm fitting the bottom shelves now. And either I can go with a shelve of 2 boards with massive gaps in between.. or 3 smaller boards with small gaps. See pic (table is upside down atm so shelves would go on the other side of the bottom 2 planks).

Opinions anyone?

Talking about these bottom shelves

Alright all the parts are done. 🔥🔥 Now I have to wait until Sunday to bring the parts over to my friend and assemble everything there. Tbc!
