Collecting some "before" shots of the hysterical reality of rounded building, no studs (it's a Quonset hut so there aren't studs in the walls), my stud is on call so it's solo mission, more math and logistics than I've had to figure out in a building without the support of experience, and a desperate need for a desk and days which involve lotion and writing versus power tools and saw dust. I so, so miss my favorite right-hand, loveliest and most bad-ass of them all @miriellekruger. She had to go off and do some fancy-pants college thing. Ugh, whatever.
Dear me a decade from now, you may be a dreamy shitshow a lot of the time, but you are badass, your work ethic is on point and your vision is worthy. Keep making it beautiful. xo, tired, dirty me now.
I've officially graduated from handsaw to sawsall to circular saw and now am ready for a table saw.
Jointing up some walnut for a brick cutting board. Using the #shopfox bench top(or in my case, floor jointer). This was a #craigslist steal and has been great for numerous projects. As you can see no dust collection 😂, it just goes right out the garage door. #efficiency#bluelinewoodworks

Huge shoutout to @makersmark_branding for my custom branding iron head. This branding iron I received as a gift from a former woodworker’s daughter. Same woodworker who built that trifold cabinet I have in my shop. It’s awesome that they were able to still use the branding iron and custom fit a head for it. So beyond happy with this.
Isn’t this gorgeous wood? I spent the morning taking photos of my hubby’s latest build. I love the way the old barn wood finished up. You can see the finished “Barnwood Entryway Coat Rack and Bench” on his website www.BayneCustomWoodworking.com - It’s a beautiful piece! #barnwood#custombuild#projectfinished#colors#photography
Was able to demo this @boschtoolsna D-tect 120 wall scanner out this past week on a job and for residential work it performs flawlessly. The only place it struggles a bit is on plaster and lath everything else it did great. In the end we ordered the D-tect 150 because it has a greater functionality on the commercial work that we do and can pick up radiant heating loops in slabs better. But for the price, for the residential contractor, I don’t think you’ll find a better scanner. What are you guys using for wall and floor scanning? @toolpig @krugerconstruction @carpentry_bymar @therealstairguy @concordcarpenter #bosch#boschtools#germanengineering#powertools#toolofthetrade#toolreview#undergroundmachineworks#contractor#carpenter
