  3. Movie Filming Slate (ClapperBoard)

    COVID forced our church into video production on a scale way beyond what we'd ever done before. With all the filming it quickly became clear why movie productions use these slates to sync the audio and video, so I made one. Did not realize the challenge it would be to have the clapper arm be...
  4. First project

    This was my first project, converting a den and dining room into a library and office. Luckily I had some help. The shelf unit is fifteen feet long and ten feet high.

  9. A green, Greene and Greene inspired table

    Some projects require a trip out to get new materials, others are made from what you have on hand at the time, for the better - or more often - the worse. After deciding to throw my hat into the Thorsen Table contest ring, I only intended to make my interpretation as "green" as possible. I...
  10. The New Access Door

    This has been done for a couple of days. The making of it was covered here and here... For finish, wipe-on Polyurethane was used for the Poplar Z-braced Door, and the trim was painted white with some Kilz that was hanging around the cellar… I always thought that Kilz was a one-coat paint, Not...

  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when...

    Showing my hand... One of three ideas I'm currently pondering involves this natural edged slab-o-pine in some way… approx 6' x 8-10" x 3" That's all I've got to say. (And nothing else to show. Really.)
