  • True Story Alert! As I was laying on the shop floor today  while attaching the tabletop to the base I said sarcastically, “look at me, I’m living the DREAM!” Sawdust in my hair, concert floor under my back and good lord I really need a shower! 🚿 (maybe a massage too). Joe laughed and said, “yup, the dream” 😜 . . . . .
Here’s the truth, I AM living the dream, dirty and smelly all the way through this crazy DREAM! 🤪 Joe just said to me this week, “can you imagine going back and working for someone??” I shook my head and said, “absolutely not” and that’s what makes this dusty mess my dream.  Yes, it’s hard and in pictures it might look like a glamorous woodworking shop (now that’s an oxymoron I haven’t used yet) and let me assure you, it IS and ISN’T.  Woodworking, the concept is easy but the work is hard....back breaking but also creative.  It’s wonderful. 😀 . . . . . 
Everyday I walk into our shop flip on the lights and smile.  It looks, smells and sounds real in here.  And it’s all mine.... I’m just living the DREAM. . . . . .
Happy Friday y’all have a great weekend!

  • Huh. One of these came with my wood lathe and I never knew what it was for. If you want one, I suggest NOT googling ‘crotch center.’

  • Tool cabinet update - got to let the plough plane out for a while. That's always a good day. Especially when the grain plays along. I got the stiles for the frame and panel face frames dimensioned, chopped one set of mortises, and cut one stub tenon and got it dry fitted up before I had to shut down for the day. So many things going on outside the shop but it's coming along slowly, but surely.

  • Sunday funday in the shop and outside:  This morning, I cut and fit my first set of pins for the dovetails on the sake and tea cabinet. It was really pleasing to see my first set of these come together so well, especially knowing that I had done it all by hand. I then roughed out the waste for the next two sets of pins. However, and as pleasing as it is, I found this a bit tedious, so I decided to take a break and build myself a storage shed in the back, for the mounting pile of furniture I've made as I amass enough to take to a show or get them sold.

Before I could start, I had to run to the hardware store first to get a glue gun (my other one broke just yesterday), but I got back around 12:30, and got started, first having to cut limbs back from the tree and getting them cleaned up.

Picture 6 shows how far I got before hunger got the best of me, and I stopped to have "breakfast". Well...it was salsa and chips. (I usually don't eat much til evening). After that and a few glasses of water, I went back out and managed to get the roof on, after having to trim a few more tree limbs back. 
Getting the first corner rafters set is a little hard to do solo, but it's not too bad, and easy once the ridge board is set. But alas, I'm now out of material, so I'll have to wait to do the wall and roof sheeting until I feel like shoving it all into my poor little Honda again...(yeah, all the material for this shed came in my Civic over the course of a few trips). Anyway, 4 hours isn't bad to have gotten this far on it today.

And now, those next two sets of pins are telling me they're ready to be worked again. Maybe later this evening. Right now, I just want to sit.

  • The Floating Bed and Laurel Bedside tables ready for their trip up to Brisbane tomorrow.

The Bed itself is very easy to disassemble and assemble, so freighting it around Australia in sections is easy.

This Bed and bedside table are made from WA Marri timber, but we can customise it to be made from any timber.

Contact us for a price guide.

  • Getting artsy with some cut offs.  I'm a fan of the light and shadow lines that are cast, just have to figure out how to incorporate that into a piece. .

In other news I made good progress on the legs for the second end table.  They are all trimmed to size and ready for the details.  #sundayfunday #stateoftheshopsunday #herringbone

  • Delivered this custom metal console table earlier this week to a client in Toronto. She was having a hard time finding a functional piece to fit in this area. After speaking with her I was able to come up with a design that would work for her and still match the style of her home. .

  • Sunday’s feel like Wednesday’s especially when you don’t take a day off until next Thursday. All caught up with projects for the day and now it is time for a glass of whiskey and a scary movie. ————————————————————————
What did you do this Sunday? Shop time or relaxation time? Trying to figure out how to do this “take a day off” thing. ————————————————————————

  • A day in the life of one of our tables.  The best testing ground is our own home.  Two kids, spilt milk, and coffee by day.  Dinner parties, red wine and many a frosty beverage by night with never a coaster in sight.

  • A stunning home bar. Sprayed using Teknos signal black and finished with solid walnut edging. With recessed lights, and handless door. This is a piece of art. And of course, the first drink is on us 😉❤️

  • I don’t have anything other than my hand saws to rip a 14 inch wide board.  I saw the wedge technique once and have wanted to try it ever since.  It came out ok, I was hoping to salvage 2 boards but only ended up with one.  Overall it was fun and I will try again someday. 
Let me know if you have experience and know how this is supposed to be done, I would love any tips or tricks.

  • Thanks to @alchemylogos for your work on my new logos.  He turned around the designs in a day and created my new IG badge in a day!  I am very happy with the end result and it looks a lot better than my homemade designs.
