Best of the Woodworking Web - Brass Tacks

Sorry we've been a bit quiet on the blog front recently, but we've been busy helping the team in South Africa with a couple of fantastic woodworking shows (more to come on those soon!).

Today we're bringing you a great video featuring the team at Brass Tacks, a furniture design company who use reclaimed bits of wood and craft them into beautiful pieces of furniture. Kevin and his team enjoy using only their hands and a select number of tools to carry out these incredible transformations:

"Picking out the lumber is my favourite thing that I do, just because it's the beginning of something that's going to end up really beautiful. We really put care and love into it, and it turns into something that was completely the opposite of what it started out as, and that's just what we get so excited about - the transformation."
