So I made a few of these Batarangs because I’m a geek and I wanted them all for myself. But then I realized a real hero wouldn’t be selfish with his tech. So now you can be the hero Gotham deserves by adding these to your utility belt! They’re sharp and ready to throw at criminals of the night! They’re also stocked up on my Etsy!
Another peek at the very detailed kitchen we’re making. This is the upper glass cabinet to the wet bar. Made of cherry and hand dyed to a warm reddish brown. Tricky cabinet. Now to clean the doors up and get some finish on! #kitchendesign#kitchen#wetbar#cherry#glassdoor#arch
The lamp is coming along good. Been working on knives so took a break from it for a bit. The amount of time the lamps take is crazy. I could forge and handle alot of knives in the time it takes to make one lamp. Excited to getvthe lamp and shade done soon.
Next up- another walnut tabletop. Go figure. These boards are stegosaurus-approved- they're from a backyard tree someplace in Montana, and that's officially enough to make them Interesting. There are some nice purples and oranges in there- the kind of stuff you tend to find in air-dried stock. #walnut
An exciting time! Can't think of a better way to start #tooltuesday than with my new @ridgidpowertools Table saw! I know this isn't new to a lot of you, but it's brand new to me and I already love it. Set up was a breeze (despite it weighing a million pounds) and it's a vast improvement over my previous saw. This will improve my production and overall quality of work. Already have several plans for routers and outfeeds to make this fit right in with the shop so stay tuned!
Can’t believe it was only a year ago that these slabs were taking up my entire shop. These Wisconsin Pine slabs were for a custom desk and credenza. This was such a fun and stressful build. I truly enjoyed every step. Check out my older posts for a shot of the finished pieces. The customer had the desk mounted to a motorized base to go from standing to sitting at the push of a button.

Good morning! The weather is PERFECT here today. Mid 50's and doors open! Made a lot of headway on the shop clean up yesterday by staying up pretty late! Today, I am starting on a Lazy Susan that is supposed to match the leaf of the table that you see here. I'm pretty good at color matching, but it's never as easy as you hope it will be. Once I get a color that I'm pleased with, I'll move on to gluing up the boards and cutting a circle! What are y'all working on today?
I’m happy to see @chalkstonewoodworking Ben in print @finehomebuilding magazine. Of course the subject is one he knows so well, window sash. Old window sash are often worth saving! Yes you read that correctly. Ben has been such an inspiration in this subject that I now take on window sash work. The repair shop is now adding window sash repair, wooden hand rail repair and refinish, and entry door restoration. All services that few are interested in doing. But we on the other hand see good reason to save the pass.
I have very much enjoyed getting into a groove of working with exotic hardwoods recently for all my mallets and cutting boards, but it is surprisingly refreshing to start a simple birch plywood project where I get to break out this Kreg K5 👍🏼 Anyone else working on a ply project these days? #tooltuesday @kregjig & @ridgidpowertools #Gen5x#teamridgid#tysonmoorebuilds

The coat hanger cut out of 8/4 stock. I’m deviating from Fidgen’s plan here and made the entire hanger from a single piece. I used my bow saw to rough it out, then cleaned it up using the array of tools before you. Being parsimonious with my material, I’ll be using the bottom off-cut for the hanger support.
