April Wilkerson  I'm a Maker. I'm moving through life building what I need instead of buying it. I also make videos showing you how I do it.

Iโ€™m about to model up a mobile clamp rack to handle this mess! It will have glue and silicone brush storage but what else should I include on it? What else do you always use when doing a glue up? Maybe a brown paper roll holder...or wax paper dispenser.

Iโ€™ve been editing my butt off for the past few days. I got two videos completely done so I took this evening to finally start spreading some dirt around my shop! @newhollandag

This clip cracks me up. This was right after I had to grind off the top hinge because we discovered the barrel wasnโ€™t welded on plumb to the mounting plate. That made us all extra per cautious on making sure things were plumb. I like how even after Brian says itโ€™s good, Cody and I both check. Our glances even in sync with one another. ๐Ÿ˜„

I hope everybody has a great Tuesday. ๐ŸŒˆ

Sometimes sitting on your butt is the best option. #imnotlazy ๐Ÿ˜‹

If you missed it, I released the build video on how I built the gate leading to my shop. Itโ€™s live on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out. Big thank you to @makergray for taking these awesome beauty shots of it! #metalworking #gate

Stop Cracks in Their Tracks. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ My shop gate project inspired a fun woodworking T shirt! Iโ€™m selling these for a limited time so if you would like to pick one up, head to the link in my bio. They come in male or female cut, and in a variety of colors. #woodworking #shirt

Yesterday my former tennis coach came to visit and we made beer tap holders. Well I made tap holders and he provided excellent company. ๐Ÿ™‚ What a cool thing to collect! He has over 50 and needed a way to display them. I made 18 of these plaque things for him so that all he has to do is apply a coat of finish when he gets home. #beertaps #collection

This week Iโ€™m trying to get at least three videos edited and wrapped so I can have some breathing room in my schedule. That means lots of computer time which means lots of time with my fur babies. They are so cut when they snuggle.

One big difference between working with metal vs wood is how long it takes to make even one cut. Simply because of how heavy the material is!! I donโ€™t mind the workout though. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ช The full video on how I built the gate leading to my house is now up on my YouTube channel. #metalworking #gate #buildlikeagirl

Ooooh its nice and cool in the shop today! I set these guys to 61 degrees and let them cool down my space over night. I drank my morning coffee in the shop just because I could. ๐Ÿ˜ I am beyond impressed with the extremely clean install @newresultsac did on these two units and also how quiet they are even on their highest setting! Big thank you to Carrier for working with me on this project. Installation video will be coming sometime in September for those of you asking.

This will be my last hot and sweaty day in my shop! #thankgoodness I have @newresultsac here today installing a brand new unit put out by Carrier. This is flat out the most energy efficient AC system on the market. Itโ€™s a 1 ton ductless mini split. Since I built my shop so efficiently (thank you @sesfoam), my entire 3000 square-foot space will only need two 1 ton units. ๐Ÿ˜ณ #thisisawesome !!!
