Well here is the last shot of CBR Woodcraft workshop 1.0. It’s been a great home for the last five years as I’ve learned and grown my craft a bit. It was always too small, it was either hot or cold, but I’ll miss it. It’s where I really discovered that I love woodworking, and I’ll take that with me to the new shop. Swipe to see a shot of CBR Woodcraft 2.0. Lots of work to be done, but it’s about 6 times the size and it’s climate controlled. I can’t wait to get it set up and running! More on why we’re moving later #newshop #oldshop #bittersweet #woodcraft #woodworking #maker #cbrwoodcraft

New product! They still need finish but these little American flag desktop coin holders are looking sweet. I’ve made wall mounted American flags before, and desktop hardwood holders, so I thought why not make the best of both worlds! Smaller size is only 11 1/2” across, larger ones in the back are 15”. Now, who needs one? #challengecoindisplay #challengecoin #challengecoinholder #americanflag #redwhiteandblue #veteran #handmade #maker #madebyhand #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #cbrwoodcraft

Hey all! I haven’t posted in a while, life’s been a bit of a whirlwind, and I realized I never shared the finished shots of the business card holders that I made. Three zebra wood and walnut, and three pure walnut. Which is your favorite? #handmade #madebyhand #maker #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #makersmovement #businesscardholder #shoplocal #zebrawood #cbrwoodcraft

Man, I love Zebra wood! Why haven’t I tried this sooner? The grain on this stuff is amazing. I was able to bang out three zebra wood and walnut, and 3 all walnut business card holders today #businesscardholder #businesscards #handmade #maker #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #giftideas #cbrwoodcraft

I’m in love with this board!! This is my first time using canary wood or zebra wood in a board and I can definitely say it won’t be the last. Those colors are popping with that @walrusoil finish. #cuttingboard #cuttingboards #maker #handmade #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #makersmovement #shoplocal #shopsmallbusiness #cbrwoodcraft

Finally spending some time back in my shop sanding this 16”x22” beauty of a cutting board. Some nice exotics in this one, but that color in the walnut is also 🔥#cuttingboard #cuttingboards #charcuterieboard #purplehearts #exoticwoods #handmade #maker #makersofinstagram #makersgonnamake #shoplocal #cbrwoodcraft

Had an amazing night last night at the Mount Vernon Craft Beer festival with this beautiful lady. I would highly recommend this event next year if you’re in the DMV. 16 local breweries pouring 32 beers to sample. #mountvernon #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #dmv #cbrwoodcraft

Just finished these little end grain boards for my show this weekend. I’m really happy with how this design came out, the walnut and cherry accents really stand out against the maple. I’ll definitely be making more of this design #endgraincuttingboards #endgraincuttingboard #cuttingboard #maker #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #handmade #mothersday #mothersdaygifts #cbrwoodcraft

I add handles to all of my end grain boards. I prefer to use the router table with a large chamfer bit to make my handles. I like having them on the bottom of board to make it easier to hold, but I’ve seen people put them half way down on the sides as well. What’s your preference? #endgraincuttingboards #endgraincuttingboard #cuttingboard #maker #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #handmade #mothersdaygifts #giftideas #cbrwoodcraft

Little early morning light on these wine caddies. I like to finish these with @odiesoil for the water resistance and the smooth feel, plus, it smells amazing! #winecaddy #morninglight #handmade #maker #makersgonnamake #craftshowprep #cbrwoodcraft

Lots of small projects on my bench right now as I prep for my first show of ‘21. It’s been a rough year for craft shows, and I’m thankful that this is my side hustle, not my full time job. Hopefully things will turn the corner soon, and we can get back to meeting new customers face to face! #cuttingboard #cuttingboards #craftshowprep #craftshows #maker #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #cbrwoodcraft

If you saw the small entryway bench I was working on a couple weeks ago, today was delivery day! Here it is in its new home, and it looks beautiful. Customer couldn’t have been happier, and I was pretty pleased too. Their new home is now complete, and I’m so excited to be a part of it #furnituremaker #furnituredesign #homedesign #homedecor #maker #handmade #cbrwoodcraft

Here’s a great look at the handle profile I cut on all of my end grain boards. I’m a big fan of the chamfer but for this application, but I’ve seen people use a rabbet bit or a cove bit too.

Finished these two smaller end grain boards yesterday. I used some of the extra lumber I milled from that huge checkerboard board I’ve been working on. This is my drying setup, after they’ve dropped dry over the mineral oil bin for a couple hours. Next I’ll finish them with some board butter and they’ll be ready to go! #endgraincuttingboards #endgraincuttingboard #maker #makersgonnamake #makersofinstagram #handmade #cuttingboard #choppingboard #charcuterieboard #cbrwoodcraft

Posted a sneak peek of these little beauties last night in my stories. I love how warm that hard maple looks when you hit it with water or oil. Both of these are available so hit me up for details if you’re interested #endgraincuttingboard #endgraincuttingboards

Due to the size of this board, I’m trying out some new cutting board feet. I got these 1.25” feet from www.cuttingboardfeet.com and they seem great so far. They’re made of silicone so they have way more grip than my usual feet, and you can order them in tons of sizes and colors. I’ll let you know more about them once I’ve used them a couple times, but first impressions are really good #cuttingboard #endgraincuttingboard

Spent the day yesterday flattening this big board on my drum sander and getting it ready for the final glue up. I overclamped the last glue up and had a little bow on each board. It took me way longer than it should have to get the two sides to come together without a seam, but I got it! Still lots of work to do on this one, but good progress was made #endgraincuttingboard #endgraincuttingboards

If you’ve been following along my stories I’ve been working on a massive end grain cutting board. Well I milled up some extra maple and walnut, so I knocked out these small boards as well. I’m all about efficiency and it’s nice to be able to work on more than one item at a time. Do you batch out your work? #endgraincuttingboards #endgraincuttingboard

Glue up stage 1 is complete on this huge end grain board. Now to glue the two pieces together into one large board. Why two pieces? Because it won’t fit in my planer otherwise #endgraincuttingboard #smallplanerproblems

WOW! What a transformation. This restoration came out amazingly well and I’m so excited to use this plane now. I bought this plane a year ago at an antique store knowing that it needed significant work, but not knowing if it could be saved. I reached out to Mark @mwebster51 to see if he could help me out. Needless to say, he more than accomplished the goals. His communication throughout the process was top notch and his work is flawless. I’ll definitely be reaching out to him again when I find my next plane to restore. If you have any plane restoration needs, Mark is your man! #handplane #handtoolrescue

Started working on my largest end grain board ever today. It’ll be 24x18 and 1.5” thick, checkerboard pattern of Walnut and Hard Maple. I did an initial milling of the boards today, and now I’ll let them sit for a couple days to acclimate. Then I’ll mill them to final thickness and cut some strips. Follow along to see how it turns out #endgraincuttingboard #endgraincuttingboards

I’m a big fan of this little setup. My Makita track saw paired with this TSO Products rail square makes perfect cuts every time. Whether it’s cutting table tops to length, or breaking down sheet goods, it’s square every time #tracksaw #makitatools

If you saw my stories today you know I spent the day getting this little bench glued up. Taking my time laying out the mortises to cut with my domino made for a stress free glue up, even with all of the parts. I had to break out my pipe clamps for this one, since I don’t have an parallel clamps that’ll span 46”. Since I don’t make a ton of furniture, pipe clamps work great for me, since I can break them down when I’m not using them and hide them away. In a small shop, anything to save space #furnituremaker #bench

CBR Woodcraft

Hi, I'm Pete the owner and craftsman for CBR Woodcraft. I discovered my love for woodworking after making a variety of items for our home, from co****le boards to built ins and it took off from there. CBR Woodcraft is a hobby woodworking shop out of my one car garage, and is a proudly veteran owned business as I've served in the Army for 18 years. The shop name is a take on my kids names, taking the first initial from each of their first names.

My shop is based in the Northern Virginia area and you can find me in the spring and fall working the craft fair circuit. I have produced a variety of products and always love a good challenge. If you are interested in a custom piece, whether it's furniture, a sign, or a cutting board, message me today and lets get started!
