Mock up for the walnut base I'm doing for the Elm top you see in the background. These finger joints were a little intimidating to make but turned out wonderful. Can't wait to get this assembled!

Just ordered a branding iron with the new WS circle logo! Check out what the guys @makersmarkbranding do! Can't wait to see the final results 😃

Third day at my new stand-up desk. Loving it! Also having fun with the rotated monitor on the right which is pretty functional.

Delivering the conference table today! Stoked how beautiful the wood turned out and sultry smooth! We got the steel legs online for about $350

Before and After of my desk modification. Turned it into a stand up work desk with a single piece of plywood. I always enjoy designing something with very little waste. Hope I like working standing up!

And here is the angle inlaid. Fits in there snug and flush!

First time trying this table stabilizer detail. Basically a recessed steel angle that will be flush mounted with screws to prevent wood movement from humidity changes.

Made the final push to move all the gravel to it's position last night. Estimating it took me 75 trips with a bucket in each hand. It has been a nice workout for the past few weeks but glad it's over!

Installed the bed this evening without any problems! I'll have to take better photos soon but this is the best for now. Note the cat cubby on in the front left. Thanks to @sand4fun for all the work.

Loaded up on firewood yesterday. Naturally had to whip up a spot to store it all. Made this little guy with all found material just laying around in the yard ;)

Last critical part of the oven fabbed by the badass @edgeworksdesign ! Full smooth action on the plate which will function as exit heat valve as well as keep varmin out! I'll take a zoomed out pic this weekend once I trim the flue down and level!

Just filled the trail up with gravel! I consider it a free work out and heck if you move thirty buckets I'll pitch in a free pizza ;)

05/23/2016

Primera 'test' pizza a huge success! Been a long time coming and nice to finally taste what all the hard work has produced :)

05/22/2016

Wow the door fits like a glove! And yep that's a fire behind there. Still gonna fab some wooden handles but this puts me one step closer to that pizza party! And not to mention I'm going to be trying my first pizza tonight!
Thanks again @edgeworksdesign

Maiden voyage was a wonderful success last night. The new outrigger glides like a knife thru water and provides the stand up stability I need. No catches but got a hard bite on the south side of the river :p

I thought the roof needed it's own cameo showing the rusty characteristics

Been a nice weather morning filling up on insulation and roofing the brick oven! The roof metal was salvaged from an old shed that came with the house. Next up stone facade!

Latest walnut bed headboard well underway. This guy has lots of crisp ninety degree edges and nice proportions.

So excited the peels and brush came today! One step closer to making some pizzas!

Hoping to finish the pizza oven dome today! Getting pretty good at hand chiseling these last few pieces

03/16/2016

Getting creative using a beach ball to support the dome construction! Notice the bocce balls used in the middle to deform to the right shape?

Quarter till ten and just finished the cedar wall!

#cedar #wood #woodworking #woodwall #interior #design

This cedar-ized wall is coming along! Adding a flush mounted track light system that is going to really set it off :)

02/06/2016

Calling it a day after reaching the third course. I think it's best to let this settle before adding additional stress. This is what I've been dreaming about for a year now. Really cool to see it coming to life!

#brickoven #brick #dome

02/01/2016

Finished the floor Saturday! The plywood shape on the brick is the interior floor template. Hoping to start the dome this coming weekend :)

This is what 150 bricks looks like. Can't wait to start forming the oven!

Just finished pouring the third and final portion of the slab for the future brick oven!
