Need wood DIY inspiration? Look no further

Here at eDecks, we love a wood DIY project. Our staff have come up with some fantastic ideas that are sure to get you inspired!

Check out eDecks.co.uk for all your DIY needs!

Sleepers bench

Our sales supervisor Chris has shared a great idea for our oak sleepers – All you need for this project is some of our oak sleepers and steel pins, it could even be completed over a weekend! Often these structures are set into the ground using concrete so they are more stable and aren’t stolen, but if you want the freedom to move yours around the oak is strong enough to stand alone.

Sleepers planter

Sleepers have a plethora of uses, like these planters. They are so easy to make you won’t feel like you’ve done any work! The only thing you need is our sleepers and specialist sleepers screws, cut down the sleepers to the desired size and place them together, drill the screws in at a 45-degree angle and voila, the ideal planter in no time at all. We sell a wide range of Ronseal products if you want to stain the wood.

Scaffolding board bench

Our sales executive Coral came up with the fantastic idea of a scaffolding board bench! We have a supply of reject scaffolding boards from only £24.07 and the legs can be made from old scaffolding pipes to give an industrial look or support beams made from our sleepers to give a more natural look. For the sleepers version, we recommend our steel sleeper pins to ensure the two pieces are connected safely.

The addition of scaffolding pipes gives this bench an industrial twist.

Chicken wire: your garden’s new best friend

Chicken wire has long been used for keeping animals at bay, but it has many uses you may not have even thought of! In this blog, we are going to expand your knowledge and maybe even inspire you to get some DIY done!

So what else can it do?

Chicken wire works very well in gardens and, as always, Pinterest is giving us great ideas. Take a look at the below garden ideas!

DIY Garden Trellis

A garden trellis can set you back a lot of money, and it can be annoying if your plants don’t take to it – so why not make one yourself to save money! All you need is chicken wire, spare wood or pipes for the frame, wire cutters, thick gloves (for the shaping of the wire) and a staple gun. Firstly: construct the frame, then wrap the wire around the frame and finally, cut the wire and secure it to the bottom of the planter. This hack is simple but effective and it will look beautiful in your garden!

Cloches are an easy, effective way to protect your plants from animals whilst allowing them to still get sunlight – but these unique domes also look wonderful in the home for a vintage decoration – so whether you’re using them in the garden or in your kitchen, here’s what you need: chicken wire, thick gloves, wire cutters and pliers. Make sure you shape it around a cylinder so you have a stable shape and then snip with the wire cutters. Once you’ve shaped it, twist the pieces of wire together. Finally, take the unfinished pieces and round them off to create a dome, attach them together by twisting, create the handle with extra wire and you’re done! Enjoy your cloche.

These indoor ideas are the perfect rustic decor for a low price. For this frame hack, you only need an empty frame, chicken wire, a staple gun and pliers. Simply spread the wire over the frame and staple it to the back and if you wish to add fabric like in the above picture, leave an opening at the top and thread it through, then staple after and you get a beautiful, homemade decoration, fantastic for Christmas!
