Bill Benoit.. Ferndale, MI  Just a guy sharing his adventure into the great pastime of woodworking.

Kind of a late post for #followfriday but there are two types of pics on IG I can’t pass up and thats kids in the shop and animals. This week I want you to check out @luckybobwoodcraft Lucky Bob is a 3 year old carpenter who kinda lets his dad help. Here is Lucky Bob sanding some egg holders inspired by the ones I posted a few weeks ago. So head on over and give this lil dude a follow. #community #woodworking #fresheggs #makesomething #featurefriday

A little #pov of the horrors that awaits this 8/4 ash as it passes through the blades of death within my @dewalttough 733! #tools #dewalt #planer #yellow

Feels sooooo good to be back in the garage. Planer is running smooth and I’m FINALLY getting back to this ash dining table. What are you working on? #ash #hardwood #diningtable #customfurniture #handmade

For those who don’t know my buddy Dom @dnr_woodworks GOT WRECKED. Dom’s house is waterfront on lake Erie and with these recent heavy rain here his breaker wall broke away in a storm surge flooding his home and his shop. Scott @getoffthecouch_design has a fundraiser going to help try and alleviate some of the cost. If you’re able to help it would be greatly appreciated!! You can follow the link on the top of mine or Scotts profiles #community #commuintyovercompetition #michiganmaker

Not much activity going on in the shop lately except a failed attempt to fix my wife’s hair dryer. Sometimes life catches up to you and things get pushed aside. Hopefully Wednesday i’ll get back to making some sawdust. Whats a way that you keep your feed going while being away from the shop? #wishIwasintheshop #myshoppov #workshop #garage #woodworkersofinstagram

#motivationmonday I’ve recently subscribed to @tothtoth and have have gone down the rabbit hole on his YouTube channel. Some of the stuff he’s doing I could of never even imagined. This Möbius Strip he is working on is completely mind blowing to me. If you’re not following him on IG or youtube you should check him out! #woodworking #woodart #motivation #skills

Mixing up @blackdiamondpigments_com Caribbean Blue in @totalboat epoxy for a little bit of a collaboration project with @valleycustomwoodwork. #epoxy #resin #art #oddlysatisfying #amazing

Random post. I’ve been on a mini trip to Grand Rapids Michigan for a continuing education conference for the last two days and these are just a few of the cool sights i’ve taken in while on break and in the evening.

Happy #followfriday this week my #ff is Julian with @5x30woodworking . He just completed this scroll saw sloth for his nephew. Jules is also a Texas boy who is stuck up north in Baltimore hating every minute of the weather so head in over and check him out! #sloth #scrollsaw #wallart #walldecor

Squaring up the ends of this live edge piece before putting it in the mold for epoxy. #dewalt #saw #wood #woodporn #liveedge

For my epoxy wall art pieces I drive a few screws though the bottom of the mold to hold the piece tight which helps prevent seepage underneath the wood. #drill #melamine #wallart #tools #drilling

⬅️⬅️Going to be pretty quiet around here for a few days as I’m heading across state for a continuing education conference. But today it’s time for a tune up on my old @dewalttough 733 planer. Replacing the dry rotted in feed and out feed rollers. I guess after 23 years ole gal deserves a new set of shoes. #dewalt #planer #maintenance #powertools #woodworkingtools
