Our project is complete! What was once a pile of old timber from an old outdoor dining table is now a huge 720mm long serving/chopping board! The colours of the merbau timber has come up beautifully with the finishing oil. Available for purchase upon request via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
My obsession with walnut hit an all time high today when I stopped in @jeffmackdesigns. Here’s a little peak at what I picked 🤩 He’s having an insane sale on walnut slabs right now and it ends this Saturday. No you’re not imagining things, I did say sale and walnut in the same sentence‼️
Got a new buddy in the workshop! Courtesy of my girlfriend ❤️ This cordless impact driver is a BEAST. I've tested it quickly with a 15cm screw in a pallet board and it looked at me like "Really dude, that's everything you got?" 😂
It's a truism that everything we buy (whether intentional or not) is a vote for the world we want to see.
Meet founders who are giving us the chance to vote for a new generation of care and craftsmanship by joining Edmund Le Brun of @ishkarartisans Tom Broughton of @cubitts and @sebastiancoxltd at #HouseofKillik in #Soho . They will be discussing what drives their businesses and the relationship between man and machine in today's highly automated world. Book your ticket now (Link in Bio).
My #protip for keeping table top glue ups flat. 1. Mill lumber square. 2. Use biscuits for alignment. 3. Use cauls to apply even downwards pressure and 4. Clamp from the top and bottom. #woodworking#clamps#buscuitjoiner

Sanding block is quick to make and easy to use⠀
A sanding block is an essential piece of woodworking equipment, with designs ranging from basic to high-tech. I’ve had good luck with this bandsawn block for many years. It can be made quickly and sized to fit a strip of sandpaper cut from a conventional sheet. The key is the wedges, which go in easily and pull the paper taut.⠀
I usually make the block by gluing up two pieces of maple, which stands up well to the wedging action. The wedges are bandsawn from the ends and fit right back into their notches after the paper is inserted. A few taps on the edge of the bench and the wedges are tight.⠀
I make a few other cuts and contours on the block for comfort, but that’s about it. You can make more than one block and keep your key sandpaper grits locked and loaded.⠀
Be sure to tear the sandpaper sheet crosswise into four equal strips, each about 23⁄4 in. wide by 9 in. long.⠀

Something other than paddles! I made this table when @catdupe and I moved into a small apartment in Toronto. All the wood was out of the family barn and was absolutely beautiful. Some of the boards I found were 16” wide!
I can't get enough of these little animal stools! Combining my love of making children's furniture and my love of repetitive lines! These also are totally adorable footstools for the animal loving adult! Available for order in my shop!
