Wishing you peace as we enter the holiday season. I hope you can make time for small observations and sketches! #journal#hickory
Tomorrow (10 am EST) I will have a shop update on my website! New winter inspired works will be posted for sale. 😊
This home video of our Kitten "Pockets" and Woodland Friend "Maple" has gotten a lot of love online with millions of views from other accounts and was also just shared by @theellenshow !! So since it was originally part of a multi slide post we are posting it again by itself to keep an eye on the views. Enjoy! And Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! .
Final setup and delivery tonight! The table is at its final resting place! It was overwhelming to see the joy and smiles it brought the clients, I put a lot of my heart into this build, a ton of time and learned so much. This was my first build of really anything and I am proud of what turned out! So many people to thank, my super supportive wife and son who sacrificed a lot of time to allow me to do this. It was not easy, working 50 hours a week and not having a shop of my own meant a lot of late nights away from the family. Also a special thank you to Tim @woodward_builds for some guidance throughout the build! Looking forward to the next project!
Build : Farmhouse Table
Base and bench: Western Red cedar
The top was stained with Varathane Carbon Gray and finished with @generalfinishes Arm R Seal satin. -Some great companies used along the way @ridgidpowertools @dewalttough @milwaukeetool @generalfinishes
@whitleywalden’s gift wrapping station. First family Christmas tomorrow and as always I’m at the last minute getting everything to her to be wrapped. On the right is the first serving tray I made and one of my favorites. The colors are great.
The handles on this one are a little simpler and a whole lot quicker to be made but still nice looking. Serving tray number two for Christmas.
One of the serving trays for Christmas gifts. The handles were mostly shaped by hand and I like the way they came out. These would make a great base for a dining table center piece too.
This 8” chef knife (aka the mule) was a custom order for a wonderful client. The handles are hickory with black G10 liners and some stunning 1/4” mosaic pins to tie it all in. My logo and makers mark was properly stamped. The blade has a hand brushed finish. This is one build I’ll never forget and I’m thrilled with the results. It took two attempts on the handle but the second go is exactly what we had wanted. #bluecollarblades#uvualumni
The most functional and useful tools i own were made by this gentleman. @ethan_harty_blacksmith if you need a great forging hammer or any forged good than you had best give him a ring first. www.ethanhartyblacksmith.com if you do you’ll have an heirloom tool you’ll treasure forever. #toolporn#blacksmith#steel#wood#hickory#custom#forged#alberta#canada
The new Moore’s Wall Bouldering Guidebook is in. With outdoor boulders less than 2 hours from the gym, it’s the perfect Christmas gift.
