Shouldn't record videos at night... I keep calling the pip PVC... it's actually ABS... I use ABS because its slightly more rigid.

Some friends recently got back from spending a year in Uganda. They brought back this cool chest from their travels... While the carvings were really cool the engineering could have been a lot better. Needless to say the chest didn't fair well in the shipping to the states. Lots of split wood and failed glue joints. Working on repairing and a bit of re-engineering. Trying to turn it into a piece that will last for them.

Knocked together a quick potato bin this week for our bumper-crop of potatoes from the garden.

Canton Brewing Company cares enough about their brewing process and supporting local craftsman that they hired me to hand make them traditional mashing forks for use in their beer production. If they care this much about the details of their tools I can’t wait to try their brews!

They needed commercial size and robust tools but wanted them made in a traditional form. After meeting with the brewmaster we decided on Ash as a strong and robust handle material. I selected the straitest grain Ash I had available.

I chose walnut as a secondary wood as I felt the colors complimented the ash well. I shaped the top of the handles by hand with a rasp. All the joinery was reenforced with pins.

This was a great opportunity and quite a fun little project that’s totally different than anything I’ve ever tackled.

Finally finished up my 2year long router table project. All my router related stuff finally has a home! It was designed as a variation of the New Yankee Workshop router table. But built around a woodpecker fence top and fence system. I put in a triton 3HP router... not the niceness router but it has a built in lift system and provides a good value for a drop in router and lift.

Bad photo but... Fun with rare earth magnets.

Made a couple of these for Christmas presents. Finley got tired of moving the one I did for us from surface to surface in the shop, and went ahead and finished and mounted it. Made from QSWO and Wenge.
