Ben Napier | Scotsman Co.  Home Town on HGTV Tuesday nights at 10 est | 9 cst, History-inspired woodworking from Laurel, MS by Ben Napier

I've been sneaking off to pools in the middle of the day with @erinapier since our first summer in 2005. She always obliges my need for cold water when the days get hotter.

It makes me feel good knowing that @randy.sherrell is still out there, fighting the good fight, pressing the flesh, beating the bushes, shaking hands and kissing babies, all in an effort to get my name out there. #voteBigBen #nevergiveup

The show must go on ⛈ A huge thank you goes out to the great folks at the @laurellittletheatre for allowing us to move the #HGTVHomeTown finale viewing event to their historic Arabian theater. You can eat, shop, and watch the show all in downtown Laurel tomorrow night (May 23). See y'all there!

We had @miss_rachaelann and @americanaquarium join us for breakfast, so @erinapier made buttermilk biscuits. I snapped this picture and have been thinking about making more of these reclaimed red oak end grain chopping blocks for the store. What do y'all think? They require more than double the amount of work for our edge grain cutting boards, but they're just so beautiful. Would y'all be interested in seeing some on the @laurelmercantile website?

On tonight's episode of #HGTVHomeTown at 10|9 ct, you'll get to check out the foundry with @joshuanowell, @jobforjim, and me. That place has been part of the fabric of our city for over 100 years. I consider myself lucky to count @ta_mulloy as a friend. There are towns small and large all over these United States that depend on companies like these. At the @laurelmercantile we're proud to design and manufacture all of our signature heirloom wares and durable goods here in the USA, including LMF's cast iron skillets, boot scrapers, and boot crickets. #keepingourhometownsstrong #iliveinlaurel 🇺🇸💪🏻 (Director + Director of Photography: Brandon Davis, Producer: @blackhornproductions, Narrator: Ben Napier, Story and Words: Erin and Ben Napier, Assistant Director: Josh Nowell, Executive Producer: Jim Rasberry, Production Assistant: Jesse Napier, Music: Albatross, "The Long Way Home")

My brothers and I were raised by two of the most amazing people ever. Today is Mother's Day, and my dad always made sure that we showed her the respect and love that she deserved. She raised four men to be confident and kind. She always fed us well, in case you couldn't tell. If you swipe, you can see my mama as a young wife, you can also see her mama, my granny Pickering as a new young wife. There's also a picture of my Grandmama Napier on the steps of the first house my mama brought me home to. Happy Mother's Day to all of you, but mostly happy Mother's Day to my mama, @ibknapier.

This table was a little more modern than the pieces we normally build. I especially love this piece for the inlay detail that works well with the clean lines of it. The drawer includes hand cut dovetails. We also included a breadboard on the ends. @bjackson010 wanted to hide the breadboard detail, but I wanted to showcase it.

I got in from Talladega this morning at 1:00, then got back up at 3:00 to catch an early flight to NYC. I'm wore out, but eating lunch in Bryant park with this cute blonde girl makes for a pretty great Monday.

We are Loving being at @talladegasupers celebrating @ross_tew_official's 30th birthday by watching our favorite @nascar driver, @stenhousejr. #NASCAR #GEICO500 #rubbinisracin

Sorry, but I'm gonna be blowing y'all up! I'm at @TalladegaSuperS watching my boy @stenhousejr. Y'all watch on @Fox! #NASCAR #GEICO500

Loaded down and homeward bound from the #MississippiMercantile.

I don't know how, but she knows every word to this song and "Live ya Life" by TI and Rhiannon. #ihopsuperstar
