#slab class over! We milled our slabs on the #cnc and a #woodshopcowboy special router sled. These beasts came out great. Thanks to @nova_labs @whitesiderouterbits @shopsabre and @leightonle1 for being my right hand BIL. 6 slabs, 10 hours, tons of smiles.

The Closet Organizer

The Closet Organizer Last month, Marie Kondo’s show hit Netflix and it seemed like everyone needed to find there way to tidying up their lives. I renovated the laundry over the last year - removing and installing new flooring, re-painting the walls, constructing new cabinets, etc. The last ticket to punch was to design and install a closet organizer. I began by figuring out what I would store in the closet, then designing a shelving system that would work. [ 82 more words ]

Gosh, that makes me so proud to say that. I love being a teacher.

This Week in the Shop: The Library Book Nook

This Week in the Shop, I build a library book nook for my school. My school librarian came to me with her coffee bar theme for a renovated library and she wanted a circular book nook to take advantage of a certain space in the library. This book nook had to incorporate a column and reclaimed table top, be made under budget (roughly $500), have a professional look, design and materials. [ 432 more words ]
