I finished this board a while back but we finally got together with some friends so I could pass it along. Black walnut and hard maple in a classic alternating stripe design. Goes great with everything, especially chocolate chip cookies 🍪😃

#tbt to last year around now when I was working on these spalted maple charcuterie boards.
I haven’t had much shop time lately but I do have a whole bunch of wood that I’ve collected and milled. It’s been drying on the shed lumber rack so I hope to transfer that indoors and get to work on more of these kind of live edge charcuterie boards this winter. I’ve got a bunch of maple and spalted beech that should look 🔥

I missed #tbt throwback Thursday so here’s a quick shot of my first workbench (came with the house). This is in the garage of our first home, now a rental, soon to be sold (I hope). This is where things really got started for me. This house is a post war row home, very common in the Philly area, built in 1950. It still had the original kitchen and bath when we moved in. We tore out the carpets, refinished the floors, painted every wall, all the trim and entirely gutted, resigned and installed a new kitchen. Lots of DIY firsts in this house and more money than I care to think about 🤑 went into making this house a home. Hopefully another young couple will love and appreciate all the work we put into it.

Here’s the @homedepot gem of a bookmatched Birdseye maple panel for the oak whiskey shelf. This is fresh off the planer, no filter. just imagine what it’ll look like with some arm-r-seal on it!

There’s plenty of controversy and disagreement…

There’s plenty of controversy and disagreements over saw blades, brands, which is best, which lasts longest, tooth count, angle, etc.
I’ve found @freud_tools /@diablo_tools to be a nice compromise between price and performance.
At first, I used a thin kerf combo blade for everything. That’s fine if your focus is rustic pine, but when you step up to finer woodworking, consider a dedicated crosscut and ripping blade. For my crosscut, I use an 80 tooth and it’s been great for me.
For ripping, I had been using a full kerf glue line ripping blade. This is a heavy duty monster and it’s great for full size saws on thicker hardwoods. But it’s probably overkill (and wastes 1/8” every cut) for most ripping I do. So I got a thin kerf ripping blade for general purpose ripping. The bonus on this one is that it has a true flat top grind, so I can use it as my spline cutting blade too.

YMMV, but I’ve been happy with these. If you’re an average DIY’er and weekend warrior/nap time hustler, they’ll probably be good for you too. #notsponsored #wishiwas #thejawnshop approved 👍🏻👍🏻 #goodtools

I’m actually woodworking today!
Except that it’s sanding. And even worse: sanding on a project I’d rather not do. Oh well, the @boschtoolsna 1250 DEVS and mirka nets and @ridgidpowertools shop vac are making quick work of this 1950’s oak staircase.

After the dovetail challenge hustle, I’m taking a bit of a break and playing with some new tools from @dfmtoolworks. Got a cabinet scraper set and burnishing tool to try out. I’ve watched the sharpening video a few times and tried it out on my own a bit, but I’m not quite there yet, as evidenced from my dusty shavings. Hopefully I get the hang of it because this could be a nice alternative to sanding!

#Shopsounds 🔊
Trimming the shelf tenons to fit in the stopped dado. Next up: rabbeting the back panel and sides of the box.

Got in a few minutes after work today to route out the stopped dado for the shelf and the rabbets on the shelves.
After dinner, I’m going to try to pare down the dovetails a bit and trim the stopped edge of the shelf to fit.

I didn’t make it into the shop yesterday, but I worked quickly today and got all the pins trimmed up. Here’s the first full dry fit. I think I’ll pare the super tight joints just a bit, some of them are scary tight. It would be a shame to crack something since I’ll probably be right up against the deadline on this.

So after the trimming is done, that will be the end of the hand tool portion. I’ll be rabbeting the back and sides, and then routing a dado to accept a small shelf before installing the back. I hope that doesn’t disqualify me from the hand cut dovetail challenge. I don’t have the tools or the time (or the skill) to do the other stuff by hand 🤷‍♂️
