With each seat I carve I find myself spending more time with the adze before switching to the inshave. The patterns look so cool in the raking light. Before I had ever made a chair I used to watch Curtis’ seat carving video and be mesmerized. I still think of it every time I carve. What a life we live woodies.

This big clamp! Saves the day once again. Find one.

I recently got this 24” tool rest from Best Wood Tools. It’s high quality round bar stock, which took a little getting used to, but I’m really loving this thing. It’s a real time saver!

Alright, you got me. Barn board sliding interior doors. I’m still not a hipster. No offense hipsters. Beards and flannels are cool by me. Get some tractor grease on those Carharrts and we’re good.

This is what a Lie Nielsen 4 1/2 looks like with Holly handles. No filter. Just class.
Thanks Travis!

Waste not want not. I’ve been taking the cut offs from the chair turnings and splitting them with the froe, turning them round, and then using them for Shaker pegs after they dry a bit. They will then still oval out a little which I find authentic looking. Every wood is sacred...

Roughing out blanks and fighting with flying maple chunks. I lost.
On the upside I wrung out these shavings and boiled down the sap. Got a nice quart of syrup for the win!

#handtoolthursday this week is the brace mounted tenon cutter by Veritas. Cutting the bow tenons is a blast with this cutter and they almost always fit.

A little spill plane action before I leave for the night. As simple as it is, I still struggle to tune the plane for a perfect spill. Practice makes perfect as they say.
Either way it's fun and a great distraction from reality. Wait, maybe the spill plane IS reality?
I'll have to give it some thought as I'm snowblowing tomorrow.

Tapered rounder in action today. I like turning the tenons but this thing makes it pretty swoopy!

Well look who's visiting the shop today!
It's Gretchen Rose.
After my last band ended in a less than pleasant fashion, I put her up for a year.
I honestly didn't know if I could ever play her again.
The Uprisers are back together for a memorial show for Kenny Kendra and there a bit more punk rock in my Shaker world. Practice tonight and have my earplugs.

Tool chest/ coffee table commission is complete. Look at all those colors!
I finished the inside with shellac for storage, and then locked the lid down with a cleat attached with a screw hidden behind the pulls. When the kids are grown they can remove the screw and use all that storage space.
That was a fun project!
