Diy Club In Singapore

Recommended Posts

Hi Vuzu,

Sorry for slow response, didn't see your post till now. Well, am inspired by pallet wood projects I see online. I intend to buid a dining table. So far have gotten myself a compound mitre saw, a circular saw, a saw zaw and a eletric planer. Just about done with deconstruction of 8 pallets. I have a lot of wood now! going to start on building soon. :-) how about yourself? anyone else here into DIY too? I am really keen to start a club or something, we can share knowledge ..etc

Hi Ngeta, am interested as well. So how do you want to build a club? internet wise or meetup?

Hi Nigeta, very curious about your planer. Which model do you have? How good is it for surfacing your pallet wood? I've salvaged some pallet wood also but haven't used them. Need an easy way to even the wood surfaces. A thicknesser would be best, but bulky and expensive. Not sure how an electric planer would do. Currently building cabinets with 3/4" block board ordered from factory. I'm cutting them to size with a circular saw and using pocket joints with a Kreg jig.

How's the club idea going? I'd be keen to join. :good:

Count me in. But, I'm kinda busy most of the time. I may need to find time to join you guys, so sorry about that.

Just move in to my own place last month. And will start to do the renos after the HIP. Start sourcing contractors and ID.

I believe DIY at our own place is more meaningful.

Try to figure out how to diy a hanging rubbish bin at my own place as I found my current rubbish bin which I place it on my kitchen's flooring is a bit troublesome when disposing .

Please kindly share your tips or ideas, greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Guys!

I'm keen to look for business partner to setup a workshop.

This workshop will provide a space for people to work on wood / acrylic DIY project. It will also be a one-stop solution for people to purchase raw material, eg plywood, timber & acrylic.
Feel free to email me if you are keen or have any innovative idea to share.

hi,

haven't been here for literally several years..... found this old thread....

I have been pretty active in woodworking... hoped to post some photos of what I have done.....

lately I have been using pallet wood for making stuff... It's not easy to get your hands on those ordinary pallet, but I have seen some pallets (from US I think) made from very very nice pine.... those are not easy to come by..... or at least it's not easy for me to get my hands on them.....

if you drive around those industrial estate... you can get quite a bit.

by luck, I managed to get access to a sizable space which I plan to turn into a workshop.

I also went for the Home fix XPC tour and power tools 101 course as well. They have a very nice setup...

hope that after 5 long years, we can stir up woodworking hobby in Singapore again..... I basically cannot find any youtube channel etc on woodworking from Singapore..... maybe we can start 1 ?

Teck Chye
