Just sharpened this Toslin & Sons (Colchester) carving knife for my client. Stunning steel!
Just finished this box in blackwood and match wood (handle) for an Adelaide client.
We turned up to the workshop after the dust had settled from the Open Studio to find that @lie_nielsen_aust had left us all a little Lie Nielsen present. Thanks mate!
Poor William has the job of sorting through the shorts and off cuts for the Studio Open Day tomorrow.
Getting ready for the Open Studio tomorrow. Workbench row.
21 Waterfall Stools in blackwood done. Christmas stock sorted.
Time for shaping and sanding.
An unusual project for us; turning four hand painted Turkish tiles into a serving tray for a client. Blackwood and Wenge.
@olas_design with a good podcast, a comfortable chair and a big pile of slats. Buddhist stool making.
Having heaps of suction with great floor sweeps is just one of the many ways we protect our backs and lungs from harm in the workshop.
Just some of the many trollies we have in our workshop to help efficiency. Fortunately, because I can retain great staff I can sometimes choose to put a little manpower into a process if I think that is the most efficient way forward.
When @hntgordon (legend Australian toolmaker) drops in with his new toys. Soo good.
Had a visit from @hntgordon at the workshop this morning. Bought my first Gordon Face Vice! What a little ripper!
Jarrah seat composed and ready for glue up.
Sanding workbench tops is a pain in the butt because they are so damn heavy. Having staff who were all the same height would be helpful, too.
