It took all day to mill these eight legs up for two hall tables. It was an adventure in finding straight sections in twisted wood.

I love my festool domino machine. Even though the angle setting is not accurate and everything is slightly off square - which I only learned once I was done. Of course.

It’s been a loooooooooooooooong time since I posted anything. Life has been rather busy. I’ve barely had time for woodworking but I’m starting to get back into the shop. I just finished this little wedding cabinet for some friends who are getting hitched this weekend. A small little place to keep mementos. I attached old letterpress letters on the front - “J” and “G” for the couple’s initials. Ash and cherry. As always, North American species rock.

This is the most incredible Staghorn Sumac I have ever seen. And one of the biggest. Sumac wood is some of the most striking and beautiful wood going but because it doesn’t grow  big enough to be a viable woodworking wood, you never see it.  (Taken with instagram)

I work really close to The Art Gallery of Ontario so I often go there on my lunch hour and ogle me some beauty. They have the BEST stuff in the gift shop. I just picked up this nifty notebook with graph paper and a pencil tucked inside courtesy of a super-awesome, pencil shaped die cut. If there has ever been a better scribbler for a woodworker, I will…not finish this sentence because there hasn’t. No way.

The outward man is the swinging door; the inner man is the still hinge.

Meister Eckhart

(I’ve been coming across a lot of really wonderful, helpful quotes that all seem to involve doors. I think it’s time I made a door.)
