Busted out the Stanley No. 3 to make sure all the seems we’re nice and flat. I glued them up in sections narrow enough to go through the planer, so that during the final glue up I only had 2 seems to deal with by hand. Using reclaimed wood can be tricky when trying to make a flat surface! Gonna order some more @waterlox tonight and depending on its arrival I hope to get them finished up this week.
Beautiful resawn cherry wood. Now that the coffin is done, I need to get back to the jewelry box that I put on hold. When I saw this board in the wood room, I just bought the whole board(5sq ft more than I needed😜). It was just so beautiful! 😍😍😍
With the completion of her masoned porch, our client wanted to add a clean yet rustic feel to the area. We accomplished this by creating custom handmade raise panel columns made from azek. The columns are bolted into the concrete on steel and are 100% composite, made to last.
My submission for this week’s #woodlibraryfriday is Why We Make Things And Why It Matters by Peter Korn. For those of you that tend to wax philosophical, like myself, this is an excellent treatise on the Why of craft. I did not grow up practicing much of any craft. I came to it later in life for many of the reasons discussed in this book, such as meaning, fulfillment, connection. Certainly not a how-to book but a lot here for any maker interested in the mindset behind the craft. You can check Peter out at the woodworking school that he founded @woodschoolmaine . Have a great weekend!!
The finished Indian Head Pedestal Table Restoration!! Ready for the next 100 years ahead. It's hard to believe that such a crappy looking broken down old table could be restored to something such as this but that's the beauty of wood, and why we love it so much!! This table belongs to my neighbors and I get to see it all the time which makes it even more fun of a project.
