Had some time after work today so I built a few cabinets to go in the study room. The @kregjig pocket hole and shelf pin jigs are like magic for cabinet making. Got one of them hung before my tummy started growling...
These rustic bottle openers are fun and easy to make. They are a perfect project to do with your kids, and to use up scrap in a functional way. Kids can use the sander and the drill, use a little stain, and see a project completed in a short amount of time. There is a wide variety of inexpensive bottle opener hardware on Amazon. The black bear is going on our back porch, and the arrow is going to a friend. What projects do you do with your kids?
Here’s a door we recently finished that we absolutely love. This beautiful sliding barn door is made from 100+ year old barn roof boards and boasts a ton of character from the saw marks and nail holes, and offers a very distinctive look. The door also features our premium horseshoe shaped hardware, as well as a hand forged handle to finish it off. Looking to add a barn door in your space? Message or call us for a free quote!

Happy Monday All! I had some people asking about the faux half laps yesterday so I thought I'd share more info. •
So what I have here is a 30 1/2" 2x4. Then I cut another piece 6" and another 18". My 2x4s are actually 3 1/4" wide since I cut the rounded edges. So I glue the 6" piece at the bottom for the legs and used a scrap piece as a spacer for the middle 18" piece. That leaves you with the top section to place another support.
I also had some people asking why I would do this rather than just cutting a half lap with a 4x4? I do like that method and use it a lot. This is just another way to do it, and to many beginning woodworkers, is much less intimidating than measuring out cutting out the joint with a saw or by hand. •
I like do and learn in a progression. If I can learn to do something in its simplest form, then I can progress on that and increase the difficulty.
Hope this helps some of you that may be new to this type of joinery. I'd love to answer any questions you may have below 👇👇👇

If I could give up one chore, it would be laundry. 🙌🏻 Laundry is a never ending chore in my house - especially when you have kids! Do you have one day dedicated to laundry or do you do laundry throughout the week? Ps... anyone else’s husband love doing laundry? Mine does sometimes (and I don’t mind!) I’m thinking of bringing out a new scent for fresh linen - what do you guys think?
Combo dining table and bench we recently completed for a client. The leg design on this one is very efficient for maximizing seating on smaller tables as the legs are pushed right out to the corners. We find many clients are now using a bench on one side of their tables - great for seating kids.
For this set we used a dark stained Ambrosia maple wood with a clear coat. Legs and frame are satin black.
