We recently received an inquiry of a custom dining table with breadboards, which reminded me to share with you why we don’t make tables with breadboards. We are asked every now and then, but we always shy away. In fact we don’t make them at all, so I had to look for a photo on the web 😂 to show what it looks like. Watch the video to see what I’m talking about. At first when I just started working with Satoshi designing tables (back in 2011), I didn’t quite get it and really liked how it looked. But that changes when I came across a table at a local restaurant here in Hawaii. The breadboards and the center piece of the table didn’t align and the teenie weenie OCD in me, disliked that misalignment very much 🤣😬 This is my first video drawing and talking. Sorry if I come across a bit nervous 😅😆 #woodworking#diningtable#breadboards#woodmovement#woodshop#designtime#furnituredesign#designermaker#furnituredesigner#woodfurniture#customwoodworking#video
It's another #flatlayfriday and today features my newly acquired Stanley #80 Cabinet Scraper. I had to buy a replica blade from veritas, but it works great! Made some nice fluffy shavings on this walnut crotch! . . #walnutcrotch#handtools
Domiyessss! 💚 • The @festool_usa domino is such a joy to use. I don’t know how else to put it without sounding cheesy. My boy @thetimberedwolf will back me up on this one. right? #domiyesss • Full disclosure, it took me a minute to get comfortable with this tool. For some reason I struggled with keeping it square. It’s taken me a bit, but we’re good now. Practice makes perfect #amiright
This willow trunk is outrageous. The wind blew it down a couple of years ago. It’s entire surface is knobby and swirled. It’s 14’ long and 70” wide at its widest. Bring it to #mattcremona ? I think I’ll take a smaller section to my local sawyer to see what’s inside before setting its plan.
Got moved into the new place only to have to pack up and move back out. Main job is sending me away for a while so etsy store and sales elsewhere will be on hold. I look forward to the opportunity I have been given but sad I wont be able to do some woodworking on the daily. On to bigger and better things with the main job, I'll be bad making new bowls, pens, wine stoppers, random firefighter pieces and furniture before you know it. #woodturning#woodshop#wood#workshops#wood#fun#job#fire#firefighter#firefighting
