The amazing Kathleen of @lindsay_hill_interiors was one of the first people I ever followed on Instagram. Everything about her cool crisp look appealed to me from the start and continues to impress me each and every day. Through the years she has become someone I feel proud to call a friend. If you're looking for someone new to follow on this #followfriday I couldn't recommend a more inspirational or kind person than her. She is #onetofollow . Have a great weekend everyone!
Check out my buddy Dave's awesome work on these through mortise and tenons for his trestle benches. Some quality craftsmanship! #FF#Repost @wildsidewoodworking
Through mortise and tenons finished for both of the trestle benches. After some fine tuning of the tenons I ended up with a nice tight fit.
Today I went to a house to look at some woodworking equipment and ended up making a new friend.
This is Jerry, a retired furniture maker and tool fabricator from SE Michigan. Of course we started talking shop right away. I found out he also collects and makes diecast cars. He showed me this wooden sheet metal bender that he made for his diecast models. At first, I couldn't believe that this wooden contraption could bend metal. Of course he laughed at my disbelief and offered to give me a demonstration. It was an awesome display of ingenuity and creation by a talented maker and a show of strength by the mahogany wood used for this small device.
We exchanged phone numbers, shook hands and I headed back to my shop inspired to create. Thank you Jerry!
More big changes happening to our master bedroom! For the new design, I wanted to take advantage of our vaulted ceilings and put a taller bed frame in. I didn't realize how hard it would be to find a canopy bed for a Cal King, but @roomandboard came to my rescue with this one! This is the Architecture Bed and it is absolutely perfect . It is helping me complete my vision for this room. I love the clean modern lines paired with the gray bedding. I'm super impressed with the quality and can't recommend them enough. Head to the blog for more details. Can't wait for more updates! #masterbedroom#blackandwhitedecor#roomandboard#partner#rusticmodern
