Another happy customer in Kansas. Long day trip but def worth it.
Welcome to the family @wagnermeters . Now it’s time to dry some lumber!
Just wanted to say thanks to Nick @3ngprintingconcepts for the awesome shirts and of course @lilsle for the amazing design and logo. Very grateful to be able to work with such good people. Make sure you get in touch with Nick or Salena if you need any shirts printed or logo work.
Well now that the news is out I can reveal what I’ve been working on for the last month. 63 axe display boards. All made from solid walnut and custom engraved. As well as laser engraved #hultsbruk axes for the newest graduates of the 2018-2019 #aretesyndicate. I can’t thank @andyfrisella @edmylett and @jasoncaine enough for the opportunity to work on what has undoubtedly been the coolest project I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved with. Congratulations to all of the recipients. Lastly big thanks to my partner in crime @coryllewis I couldn’t have done it without you buddy. Flip through the album of progress pics and let me know what you think. Good people doing work for good people is what makes the world go round.
Head down eyes forward. It’s been a really busy month but life couldn’t be better. Two great tables delivered today! Both amazing walnut slabs!! And I gotta day thanks to @lbollasina for the help recently.
Forgot to post this earlier but a nice 7’x3’ reclaimed sign for the man cave! Delivered and hung with a French cleat.
Nothing to see here but some beautiful walnut slabs waiting for finish. They are going to make some beautiful tables.
This is gonna be one sick #walnut #slab coffee table. 6ft long by 2ft wide. I prefer using pieces with imperfections. I feel like it has more of a story than perfect clean cut lumber.
Recently got to go put another coat of finish on this awesome maple butcher block top. Still looking great!
Thanks to everyone for helping me sell my most recent bench. It looks great in its new home. Here are a few delivered pictures in its new home. A great addition to the room.
Had to get a quick before picture of these awesome walnut slabs I picked up from @woodcraftstl for an upcoming project.
Took some time and turned this pile of cherry scraps into some rough dawn wood. Next to the jointer
Here is A before and after of the rough carving of the front leg joint on the chairs. Slow and steady now. I find myself using more hand tools than I would like but messing these up now would be a tough pill to swallow.
Well a small miscommunication with a customer has led me to having this reclaimed oak bench available for sale! It’s about 90” long and 14” wide. Originally it was built for $800.00 but I would like $650.00 for it. Please let me know if your interested.
When I started these in January I had no idea what I was doing. Now I’m ready to start carving and bringing these chairs to life. They aren’t perfect and a lot of mistakes were made but great things don’t come from taking the easy road. Fingers crossed I can be patient carving them......
Finally had a few minutes to get back to work on the chairs today. Fitting these arms up was quite the chore. I started by measuring the compound angle where the arm meets the back leg. Then it was to the bandsaw to cut the inside radius of the arm and flip and glue it to the outside to give the arm that nice curved sweep. These chairs have been a lot of fun and an awesome learning experience!
The only thing better than 1 maloof low back chair is two!! Finally looking like chairs! I was able to get some driveways shoveled and spend the rest of the day putting the last few legs on. Here’s a few updated shots. Full disclosure I’m building two in hopes of getting one nice one out of the pair.
Really digging how this chair is coming together! Hopefully I’ll have a few snow days to get the legs on.
