The danger of giving work away before properly taking a #glamourshot is @coachbert22 and the other @lseagles2010 coaches just go and put the #co****le sets in the truck before the lighting gets good.

These are custom vinyl stickers made @makersmiths in #loudouncounty, with hardwood edging, black enamel paint and stainless hardware. DM if you want me to quote you something similar.

a #farmhouse #mantle I built & installed for a local customer. What a gorgeous finish from @osmo_usa via @toolsforworkingwood. What clarity and depth with such a simple application. I am a convert.

If you want something custom built for you, just drop me a DM.

The #dovetail class went.....ok, I guess? Brazilian cherry is a harsh mistress and she asks for precision. Which is why I have no pictures to the joint itself!

#Woodworking Classes Have Gone Online

Even when the makerspace is closed, makers gonna make. I have moved my woodworking instruction online during this challenging time, hoping to inspire and excite you. My Project Class series online and moved it to Wednesday nights. On April 22nd, I walked through the design and construction of a simple kitchen cabinet. In this class, students learned to source and prep plywood the easy way, use all the necessary tools, joinery techniques, door construction and finishing to create your own kitchen cabinet at home or at a local makerspace.

A pair of #endtables for my boys' matching bedset. A quick, easy project that came out like 100. Should I turn this into the next WoodshopCowboy tutorial or class?

If you are interested in your own one of these, just DM me. The Cowboy is taking commissions.
