Huge thanks to @ecopoxy and @trevor_ecopoxy for the outstanding customer service, education and correction of my ordering mistake. Plus they threw in a kit of ecopoxyUV (the stuff I should have ordered) to try out along with some colored metallic pigments!

I’m pretty excited to start working on the charcuterie boards, now I just need them to finish drying out. Hopefully the increased airflow of the new outdoor lumber rack helps speed up the process.

This little roof for the shed lumber rack took longer than anticipated today. I’ve never done any roofing and barely drew up plans. Just kindof got to it with a stack of shingles and some leftover treated yellow pine. The last two courses got a little sketchy since the pneumatic nail gun kept shooting the nails clean through so I switched to some wire brads and seemed to go ok. I’m also not sure if real cedar shake style involves Titebond 3, but mine does 😂 whatever works, right?!

No shop time this weekend, but it was still productive. Got up before the heat on Saturday and @cgb0720 and I speed painted the shed. Only took us 9 years to get to it! 🙄
Then today since I was tired and it’s so hot, I was just going to spend a few minutes getting the firewood resituated and add a quick exterior lumber rack. Fast forward to 4:30 pm and I’ve just finished. Now all of the fresh cut maple and beech can get decent air circulation. I still need to add a roof and some tie downs or I think I’ll be stacking lumber every few days. This setup allows some room to grow too. These shelf pieces come in various lengths and I can always add some wood to lengthen them if I need to. This side of the shed only gets direct sun for an hour or 2 so it should dry stuff nicely without cooking it.
I also stocked up on supplies for my next build, which I hope to crank out this week. Menu signs for @valentesnj

Sanded the big leaf maple burl down to 320 and applied some mineral spirits to see what it looks like. I think that’ll work just fine! 😍

The 6 way book match big leaf maple burl is out of the clamps and ready for sanding. Looks like the glue lines are nice and tight so when it’s sanded down, all you should see us the Bookmatch “reflection” and not the lines in between each panel. Since this is straight off the resaw blade, it needs a ton of sanding. It’s hard to see the burl pattern, so I enhanced the heck out of it especially for @mf_woodbutcher ’s and your viewing pleasure. But mostly Eddie’s.
Those big black blobs are glue squeeze from the pipe clamps.

Im like a year late to the epoxy game, but I’ve gotta do something with these cracks in the spalted silver maple. @ecopoxy seemed like the right stuff for a food contact board. I also picked up a sample pack of @blackdiamondpigments_com to play with, but these will all be natural color fills.
I’ve watched more videos than I can count, but if you’ve got tips or tricks for a first timer, shoot em my way!

Latest log on the mill. Another spalted beech, this one with a bit of crotch figure. The slabs didn’t turn out as great as the earlier one. I rushed one cut and the blade drifted a bit. The blade is getting s little dull, but it was mostly my fault, just gotta take my time.

Today I finished resawing and planing all the panels for the scrollsaw tree wall art project. Here are all the panels off the planer. On the left is Bookmatched Jatoba, Bookmatched walnut on the right, in the middle, it’s hard to see, but that’s a chunk of big lead maple burl that has been cut into thirds, then edge jointed and glued in to a panel, then resawed again and book matched the 3 into 6. Not sure if there is a woodworking term for that when you resaw something several times and lay it out accordion style and glue it up. But that’s also what’s going on with the wenge at the bottom. Front to back to back to front to front. Not all of those will be glued, but two panels will.
Next step, besides gluing, is to make finished surface panels so I can start the scroll work. Lots of sanding up next.

This past weekend, I started a live edge cherry log guest book for some friends getting married later this year. Over the weekend, I selected a choice log from the firewood pile, stripped it’s bark and gave it an insect eviction treatment (just in case).
While that was finishing up, today I started the interior. After watching a few book binding videos, I decided I was probably competent enough to give it a shot. Progress results are pictured. Not bad for a first attempt! It felt super nerdy to make my own book. It was tedious and repetitive (as I always find sewing to be), but it was not terribly difficult. Actually easier than sewing cloth since the holes are pre-punched.
After the spine has been glued, I’ll add the end pages out of ivory card stock, then the pages will be trimmed flush on the tablesaw. YouTube crafters probably don’t have access to that kind of machinery, but I sure don’t have the time or patience to cut each page flush with an exacto knife.
Since there will be days in between where glue is setting, I plan to switch back and forth from live edge log work and inner book binding. Stay tuned for more, this project will be a bit extensive. Also, I’m making a story highlight in car you want a quick recap.

The spalted sycamore tie bar and cuff links came out pretty ok too 😉
If you’re interested in a set, send me a DM. I’ve got a few varieties to choose from. Still a few pendant necklaces and stud earrings too!
