You hear a lot about recycling old junk into shiny, productive items around the house, but photo pool member Nick Johnson put his skills where his junk was and came up with a great addition to his new lathe.
I built a drawer set to hold the plentiful accessories that came with my lathe.
The entire drawer set is built from scrap wood that was being thrown away on the streets of Brooklyn, with the exception of the wood screws, and the drawer pulls that I got at the park slope flea market.
Nick made someone else’s trash his building material — and he wound up with sweet storage for his lathe attachments. He wins a gold star on his planet-friendly card this week!
