After finishing breakfast we are going to start our first project! The Hatchery Place, still quite a big blank house, offers a lot of space for new creative ideas! Today it’s a TABLE we decided to make! We start early, but even in the shade the weather is scorching hot! This is a typical Malaysian weather in February and March.

Even in the shades, the weather is scorching hot!

Curious faces appear behind the curtains and suspicious eyes are glazing over the fences, watching our machinations and following our every step.

The sawing machine produces such a noise that tears the air apart, sawdust is covering our hair and eyes, sticking to our salty skin, sweat is running down from our foreheads. The work is not easy, but it’s worth it!

Size has to be exact!

Wood cutting

After trimming the wooden pallets to the right size, we can start sanding them. Apart from the permanent noise, this work is quite relaxing. We enjoy the steady movements and to see how the rough surface becomes smother, and hard edges become round.

Dusts got into our eyes!

THIS IS FUN!!!

After finishing our work we line up the processed pieces and sight our work!

They look beautiful, the grain is now clearly visible and standing out against the wood. The table is too big in size, so we need to bring the pallets upstairs and assemble the up in the Artist’s Studio. Don’t underestimate the weight of a pallet!!!! Those things are heavy! Upstairs, we screw the pieces together, two table legs and one extra leg to support the two upper pallets, which serve as the working top.

To give the table the finishing touch, we screw the edges together to avoid gaps and to provide a higher stability!
