How to : Carving A Wooden Spoon by handI have not been able to get much time in the shop lately so to ease myself back into it I made a wooden spoon using mostly hand tools. Spoon making is a lot of fun!! I made the spoon out of some scrap ash wood, I used milk paint and clear lacquer on the handle. The oil did cause a small bit of discoloration on the handle because I did not apply lacquer down far enough.I made a video while making the spoon please check it out!!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqKTzM3rbRs&t=20s

Coffee Bar

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Coffee BarI built this coffee bar for my wife's birthday this past fall 2018. (Sorry I never uploaded it)I used concrete to make the countertop and the lower shelf and also added Alexa-enabled an RGBW led light strip to it to help add some ambiance to it and the house. It weighs upwards of 700-800 lbs and only cost me two smashed fingernails(that have regrown) and about 400$I used unfinished cedar 4×4's for the outside posts and then used 1 Pine in various widths to dress the sides overplywood panels.The cabinet door is held in place with a 12lb resistance neodymium magnet and has a led motion sensor light bar inside to illuminate the coffee and the supplies.I used bags of various bolts, nails, screws and hammer markings to accent and distress the wood before finishing with Jacobean and spray-on polyConcrete was sealed with food grade (non-toxic) concrete sealerI used a concrete mixer and charcoal die to give it a more grey colored concrete finishThis took me about a month to build.It gets well used and most likely have no intention to ever move it again. Lol. Whenever we move and build another home.. it won't be joining us lol
