Nothing is going right for me today so let's have a favorite tool spam. First up is my child. My dad has been using this scroll saw for as long as I can remember, though it may have been a different one when I was a kid. I wasn't allowed that close to the tools. This beautiful and reliable child is a Craftsman 16 inch direct drive scroll saw from Sears, back when they sold more than clothes. That tube you see is connected to the air pump behind it, which we use as one of two options to keep the dust out of the way, and to power the nail gun. I use a small desk fan cause the air pump is insanely loud and I'm not nearly as deaf as my father. I actually had to tell him to turn it off because it would jump scare me every single time I turned on the power panel we use downstairs for our tools. And of course you see the typical crafty clutter. Our basement is the workspace. Not nearly as big as the garage shop he had when I was little. #woodworking #scrollsaw #sears #craftsman #craftsmanscrollsaw #crafstmansaw #woodworker #toolpost #favoritetool

Whisky tumbler case: This shows some stages in the making of a case for some very beautiful silver gilt whisky tumblers. I don’t use sketchup or any other 3D programme for planning or mocking up - but I do use photoshop.
.
The second image shows the various elements I used, some of which was scanned from material I’d been supplied by the customer that needed to be incorporated. The main box ‘skeleton’ was actually nicked from an image of a tea caddy I’d made, stripped of its main veneer in readiness for the walnut veneer to be ‘applied’.
.
As it turned out the customer decided on a slightly different format of box - flatter than the one I’ve mocked up here. But being able to show mockups of the different levels of decoration was a valuable starting point ... .
And what the hell did we all do before masking tape?!
.
I make very little use of laser cut marquetry but on this one the asparaguses were produced by Aryma. The pineapple is all my own work ...
.
The finished piece will be posted in a few days. . .

Every. Single. Time. I enter our barn, I am humbled. To think that people built these beauties with neighbors and friends out of sheer need to provide a living for their families just makes it that much more. #majestic #barn #wood #carpentry #woodworking #woodart #craftsman #theydontmakethemliketheyusedto
Just finished up the solid wood edge banding for the #midcenturymodern credenza I’m working on, and this Little Lipper router attachment from @fastcapllc was a total game changer. Perfectly trimmed edges with no tear out. How do you flush up your edge banding? #woodworking #notsponsored
