Putting the hinges on ( I use cheap transfer punches to transfer my holes from the bottom hinge components to the top ones), getting them shaped so the box opens (gotta draw a circle from the center of the pivot point to figure this shizzy out), and insetting a big lens. The lens circles were cut on a bandsaw, cleaned up on a sander and then rabbeted with a router. Lots of screwing things together and taking them apart. Used my Memorial Craig Nutt pencil from this year’s Furniture Society conference, because what other pencil works when building a Nut Case? #woodworking#reclaimedwood#wood#garageshop#woodshop#womeninwoodworking#craft#contemporarycraft
Holy moly! Actual sunshine pouring through the shop windows! I don't even have the lights on in this picture! It's been 4 solid days of ceaseless rain here in Georgia, and a little sunlight really does lift the spirits. I've moved my long workbench into the middle to function as a big assembly table for a number of projects that I have going on right now. These rustic box lanterns are going to be part of a pop up market at @pinkiesupbw on November 24th from 12-5! If you're in the area, come say hi!

Either my digital angle gauge isn’t very accurate, or my tablesaw table isn’t very flat. Probably a little bit of both...
Both pairs of pictures show the gauge being moved from one spot to the other without being re-zeroed. For the first pair, they should both read 0.0. For the second pair, the should both add up to 180.0 (90.2/89.8, for example).
Makes it hard to check the alignment on my saw blade using such imprecise tools. 🤔🤔

Action shot of one of my flip-up tool carts. I have 2 flip-up carts, one for my #rigidtools planer and one for my miter saw. I also have 2 more carts with drawers and shelves. The bonus part is that when flipped up, the tool surface is exactly the same height as the top of the rest of the carts. This took some engineering, but has been so worth it! 👍
