They say a good woodworker isn't one that never makes mistakes, but one that can hide the mistakes that were made.
I'm not good, but you'd have to search pretty hard to figure out where this spoon split apart while carving.
The spalted maple is beautiful though, isn't it?

I would estimate I have about a dozen shop upgrades I would like to make, but tonight I only have the energy to sweep.
If any of my neat freak friends wants a real challenge I'm willing to let you go crazy in my shop.

Tough day in the shop. This was a rough sawn 8ft 2" thick board of Burr Oak meant for a coffee table top. My poor planer was not a fan and I was sweating like crazy by the time I was done. I think the rollers got too hot and I had to push it through. Good thing yesterday was let day at the gym because I got one heck of an arm workout tonight.
I think this is probably a waste of some very pretty spalted maple, but I learned a bit making it. Chiefly that I need a lot more practice.

When someone gives you a beer stein you have to have a beer. Thank you @bree_engelhardt I love it and it fits perfectly.

Three projects in the works tonight. The first it just stabilizing this awesome, hollow piece of oak my friend James gave me. He's the person who introduced me to turning so I thought I would fill it with his favorite color.
The second is two of three coffee table legs turned down to shape.
The third is a secret project for a friend, but it combines my two favorite hobbies.

This was the quickest spoon so far. Made from some reclaimed elm I still had sitting around. I thought the green was a nice accent to the fairly bland wood.
Things I do need though, a sloyd knife, a few more hook knives of various sizes, more band-aids, and probably a thumb and finger protector... #cutsbuildcharacter #theflayedman #spooncarving #woodworking #carving #crafts #handmade #handtools
One cherry, one butternut. Both finished with mineral oil and a light coat of beeswax. Man I think I found my new favorite thing to make. I can't wait to have more time to practice.

New favorite tools. There is something very satisfying about spoon carving, but now I need ALL the hook knives!

What. Have. I. Done? I might have to change my name....
Even @dashasha87 isn't sure about it. Luckily things grow quickly around here. In the meantime I could use some good after-shave.

Some might call this chili, some might call it a meat and veggie stew. I don't care what you call it, but I call it a double pot of spicy, yummy, awesomeness.

I still need to finish the bottom, but I wanted some input on the crack. Should I cut it out and MAKE a feature, it let the natural feature live on the bowl?
What does the internet collective say?

Yes, the portion size is huge. No I won't eat all of this in one sitting.
That being said damned if I've ever had a bad recipe from @altonbrown I'm drooling and I've not feeling like eating for two days. Thank you Sir!
Garlic is good for you right? I've felt like death the last two days so why not try an @altonbrown recipe to make me feel better. I'm sure 40 clove chicken will do just that.

Pardon the heavy breathing, I've got a cold.

Few things are as pretty as freshly cut cedar.
A tale of triumph and tragedy.... Butternut squash Irish cream pie.... Then a mess.
Some progress pics of the Scrabble board.
Making these is very similar to making an end grain cutting board, but there are a few more steps and glue ups. Plus I prefer side grain for board games and the segments have to be a specific size to accommodate the letters.

Finally got the last coats of finish on this guy. I hope you like it @mercipourlegateau
Hard maple Scrabble board with mahogany lines, lyptus border and piece holders. The board is hand painted by the lovely @dashasha87
I wanted to have the tile stands attach magnetically, but the size was all wing and they ended up looking funny that way.
