When your wife decides to bring home a few pieces of black walnut from a plywood store in Penticton and says can you make the top of my new eating bar stools with this…….but they aren’t the best pieces ( knots, cracks etc🙈) and she wants you to make something out of nothing…. You do👏👏👏
Excited to see them when they are finished!

Another shop stool in the making!
Used these very old pieces of fir that looked like nothing special!
This wood was in somebody’s garbage pile and he pulled it out and took all the nails out of it because he knew that you don’t find pieces like this very often!
The depth of the grains were so striking once he planed and joined them😱😱

Mortise and tenons done! Now for more sanding and the glue up😜 Took him 2 days to do the mortise and tenons! He said if he’s going to do this advance woodworking he needs some new tools😂😂😂

Ottoman table! Glued up and sanded with 120 grit still needs the 180 grit!
Doing a joint he’s never done before called a through wedged mortise and tenon🙈 Very precisioned technique!
Wish him luck🙏🙏

Wowsers! Finishing up this tabletop with a product called “ Odies Oil! We follow “ The Samurai Carpenter” on YouTube and he uses it on everything!
It truly brings out the natural grain and beauty of this wood!
You buff it on leave for an hour and buff off!
This is coat number 2, someone’s gonna have a sore shoulder lol wax on, wax off😜😜

Coming along nicely!
Going to use some epoxy to fill any grub holes or knots and then a natural stain and a satin polyeurathane finish! She’s a beauty!

The making of the breadboard ends takes a lot of intricate work with the router, cutting out the tongues and grooves to fit together seamlessly!

The reason we do these ends is to allow for expansion and retraction of the wood!

Almost ready for the glue up!

Day 1 of table top production!
It starts with 11 rough 2 by 6 boards that are planed and joined and any bad knots or grub holes are removed!
Then we join the boards together in 2 larger pieces using biscuits and glue… lots of glue🙈
Then we manipulate the boards with the clamps and a wood mallet to remove any bows.
Then we cut to size and get ready for a ton of sanding to make them mould together to look like one beautiful slab of wood!
Working on the breadboard ends today that will attach to each end of the finished slab👍

11/04/2022

Ooh la la…. We get excited when we get beautiful slabs👏👏👏
I think I might have to put an order in… # always at the back of the line🙈

18/01/2022

She’s ready to go! 💕💕

Primer ✅ coat 1 of paint ✅, Coat 2 today!
The paint colour on here is “ Chantilly Lace” by BM. If you are looking for a true white this is the closest I have seen!

This beautiful coffee table can go to its new home tomorrow👏👏👏

15/01/2022

This beauty is coming along nicely! Needs edge banding, primer and paint👏👏

It’s paint day! After 2 coats of primer!
My job is the wash up afterwards😜
Also started a second project….Got the legs cut and the side and end rails cut we are waiting on the wood to dry for the table top on the first project!

06/01/2022

This is what you call a redneck kiln for drying lumber😜😜

First coat of primer on the table base before it’s painted white!
Got some gorgeous fir for the top which will be a natural finish!
Look at the colours and beautiful grain❤️

It’s glue up time! This brings Bills blood pressure up😂😂
I can’t tell you how many times we measure for squareness and check all corners🙈🙈so many times!
If the wood is not doing exactly what we want it to, we manipulate it with bracing and clamps!
We cannot be even a 1/16 of an inch out, it must be exact!
He is a true perfectionist👍

31/12/2021

Dry fitting the dowels! Discussing which type of router bits to use on the edges of the wood!
We both agree😜 45’s on the leg posts and a round over on the side and end rails!

30/12/2021

One of the many behind the scenes conversations over a good cup of coffee. Trying to figure out the proper reveal for the side rails to the legs🤔

We almost never agree in the beginning lol! After some debate on this one, he won! You win some you lose some😜

What do you do when it’s too cold to get outside????

Snuggle into a nice warm shop and start a project! What will it be???

Excited to try a new product for finishing! We saw it on the “Samurai Carpenter” on you tube! He is amazing!

New end tables heading to Fernie soon, just need to attach the hardware….love the white with the white pine in a natural finish.
Also these two tables we made for our family room downstairs out of 2 by 4’s and leftover hardwood flooring. Loved that we could make these custom to fit the furniture!

As Bill would say “this ain’t no IKEA crap” 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

23/11/2021

Coming along nicely👍

21/11/2021

The start of another project! Stay tuned👍

19/11/2021

Needed a second end table to match the first for the basement…. but it had to be specific dimensions for the space which was quite a bit narrower!
The beauty of building your own furniture!
Ready for stain and clear coat.

All done! This experiment started out as a project to learn how to use his new dowling jig.
It was going to be a table to hold his batteries in the shop!
I don’t think so…. Now he has to make me one more so I have a set for the family room👏👏

Using upcycled oak hardwood flooring for the table top and bottom shelf. Finishing them with a clear coat to let the natural colour and grain come through.
Frame has been primed and puttied and painted black! Will be a nice contrast with the wood👏
