I like a challenge. This one's going to mean channeling a little Caracatus Pott (Chitty - Chitty - Bang-Bang by Ian Fleming). The plan is to house this old topographic map of the Lake District under glass in a rather large coffee table. That in itself isn't really a challenge. A wooden tambour cover between the glass and map, that parts and disappears into the table to reveal the map when a handle is inserted and cranked.... Might just be! Cue head scratching. #guybutcherfurniture #madeinherefordshire #furnituremaker #handmade #caracatuspotts

Longboard completed. 47 x 10 inches. American Black Walnut deck surface with cross laminated Poplar core. The birch plywood spine is jointed into the Poplar creating an incredibly stiff, yet visually thin (12mm thick in the centre and tapering to 7mm at the rails) 'T' shaped structure. Now I know how strong this one feels, I think I can loose a veneer and go down to 10mm. Finished with Entropy Supersap bio-resin and recycled glass grip. #guybutcherfurniture #madeinherefordshire #butchboards #skateboard #skate #cruiser #cruiserboard #longboard #entropyresin #supersap #boardofthefarm

Started my 25th year making furniture, making furniture this morning. Ended the day shaping these two laminated skateboard decks. I'm not suggesting that there's anything revolutionary in the way they're made, but both are made from timber that comes from within 6 miles of the workshop, and is certainly not the normal choice for this construction. The core veneers are Poplar that I have cut and cross laminated. I've also added a couple of layers of fibreglass for a little spring and strength. Poplar isn't a strong timber in the same way as say Maple or Ash, but has a flexible strength, is amazingly light and abundant. So what I need is someone to try and trash one to see just how strong they are. @herefordskatepark anyone there like the challenge? #guybutcherfurniture #madeinherefordshire #butchboards #skateboard #skate #cruiser
Sun-filled winter afternoon tea parties at Granny's wagon 🏕. A pretty perfect way to end our icy jaunt to the motherland

I'd call this a good way to end the day. A first coat of Supersap bio-resin on the first ribbed longboard, and I decided to refinish two boards that previously had been finished with a finish that I mix and use on furniture projects that need a tough coat. I use the Supersap on the bellyboards when glassing, but tried it on a couple of skateboard decks too, without the glass, and I'm really impressed. #guybutcherfurniture #madeinherefordshire #butchboards #skateboard #cruiserboard #cruiser #skate #longboard #entropyresin #supersap

Arty curly shaving shot. Shhhhh..... random orbital sander just out of shot. Nailed the rail profiles I think. A splash of colour, then glass. #guybutcherfurniture #madeinherefordshire #butchboards #alaia #woodensurfboard #alaiasurfboards #pragmatic
Granny and her side kick 👩‍👦. Not even sub-zero temperatures and winter colds could keep these two apart. Jack has followed granny around everywhere she goes (including the shower) since we arrived in England. No sense of personal space this kid 🙄.

Waddle is such a lucky tortie! She has the loveliest and kindest friends in the world. Here she is playing with the mouse that @lucythetorty sent her. It really brought out the hunter in her - hiding behind furniture, pouncing, throwing. Thank you Lucy ❤️😻❤️

Might as well start the year the way the last one ended. On taxi duty tonight, so some very early morning messing in the workshop. New former and slightly different construction for the next alaia. Not quite so simple. Thanks to @dyylhughes for your help earlier today. #guybutcherfurniture #madeinherefordshire #butchboards #alaia #woodensurfboard #alaiasurfboards
