I bought my house last November, but it didn't have a wood stove, so for this winter I changed that.

This is a slate called ocean. It is polished smooth and some of the coolest stuff I've worked with. A lot of variation in each piece and has a metallic look. 16"x16" tiles.

Almost done moving into my new shop space, but being just a corner of another shop I needed a bit more storage and work space. I just finished this quicky assembly/storage table. I built it on casters so I can wheel it wherever I am working, and made the drawers with the 1/4" ply bottoms extending out the sides to run in matching dados in the carcass. Cheap, functional, and I can easily pull the whole drawer out to set on the work surface.

Hopefully starting my first project, a cherry bed, sometime next week.

Thanks, gentlemen!

I had thought that I would have been making furniture by now, but utilized the last 2 1/2 months doing subcontract work post-flood, learning the area suppliers, and building a network of clients and fellow craftsmen. Many thanks to the Taco's own Prod for pitching some work my way and for hooking me up with another cabinetmaker.

Besides Boulder and the surrounding towns I've already done a bunch of work in Denver, first on a commercial bar and most recently installing high end cabinets in a historic mansion. This was a kitchen of maple, sprayed with a white polyurethane, which meant that there was absolutely NO room for error; no visible nails, perfect joinery, cabinet sides scribed to meet either brick or plaster walls, and furniture type feet scribed to 100 year old flooring. Now that I am out of there the walls will be skim coated with plaster before the marble countertop and appliances go in.

The large wall hung cabinets probably weighed 500+ lbs.

Hopefully I can see the completed kitchen when I return with a custom built (by me) hardwood step stool so the owners can access the upper cabs. I'm trying to steer them into an upscale version of a traditional design which converts from a chair.

Anyone in NH want some work done? I've got a little down time between projects.

Edge, sounds like you're settling in well. Excellent!

I finally added a tail vise to my workbench, which I made some 20 years ago.

I bought a 2" wooden screw and matching threaded maple block in the late 80s and basically forgot about it. I found it during our move and threw it in the storage POD, and yesterday figured out how to adapt it for the vise. Since I'm a cheap bastard, I used 1/2" galv pipe (7/8" OD) for the two guide rods.

Tomorrow I put it to work in earnest, starting a cherry bed and nightstand project.

Now I have a new vise! At least this one shouldn't cost me $6K in rehab bills...

I'm roofing, which is normally just a dirty way to get a little excercise. However, when we pulled off some of the old roof deck to add insulation, we found a sweet timberframed white oak roof system. Cool stuff, the purlins are massive!
