Shop Reorganization and Tour, Jan 2021

Husband and I had some additional footage and a bathroom added to the shop. This new area was going to be the metal shop, but Husband has claimed it as his own space. He says the other side is all mine now, but I know we both will use each side as we need to. For the past 2 weeks we have been moving things and reorganizing! In this video I show you how we have things set up. I also show you the tools that I use including my sanders and saws.  

The Woodtek is not available, but this is a comparable pneumatic drum sander: Grizzly G8749 – Drum / Flap Sander: https://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Drum-Flap-Sander/G8749

Aku Aku

I was asked to make this character, Aku Aku, by my cousin. This is a character from the video game Crash Bandicoot. I used sapele, padauk, aspen, and yellow heart for this project.  It was fun to put this together and I am honored that my cousin asked me to make this.

Christmas 2020 Routered Sign

Merry Christmas 2020 everyone! In this video I use a modified clip art image of the nativity scene. I added Christ the Savior is Born, transferred it to some wood and routered it out. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! Here are some verses telling us what Christmas is all about, and why we celebrate it! 

Isaiah 9:6 (ESV) For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder,  and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

John 3:15 (ESV) that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

2 Corinthians 9:15 (NCV) Thanks be to God for his gift that is too wonderful for words.

Laundry Deck to Laundry Room

We bought this house in 2016 and most of the work we did on it at that time I made videos about. I will leave a link to the playlist down below if you want to see what we did 🙂

So just recently we decided to upgrade the laundry deck and make it part of the house. We insulated and closed in the walls, removed the sliding door, insulated the floor and installed good flooring, added some lights, and rearranged the appliances. It looks and feels so much better in there now!

We also upgraded the bathroom and replaced the flooring in the kitchen. We put the house on the market and it sold right away!

Intarsia Hummingbird (JGR pattern)

In this video I make a hummingbird from a Judy Gale Roberts intarsia pattern. This is my second attempt at making this hummingbird. The first time I didn’t use sanding shims so I struggled with shaping. So this time I used the shims and it worked very well. The ending result wasn’t what I was hoping for though. These small pieces were difficult to work with. I keep telling myself ‘no more small projects’ but then I think ‘I can do it!’. What I did like about this project is all the different shades of poplar that came off of the same board (purple, green, and white). Amazing! And I also like the overall shape of the hummingbird. 

I put on Job 12: 10 from the ESV which says, “In his hand is the life of every living thing  and the breath of all mankind.”

Listed below you can find links to the pattern and also to a lot of the things I used on this project. Some are affiliate links.

Be Happy Routered Sign

I was a bit grumpy working on this sign and a friend called and I talked with him and told him I was grumpy. He asked if I was working on a project and I told him I was and that it was a Be Happy sign. I can’t remember the rest of our conversation but I am sure it had something to do with how ironic that was. So I happied up and put into practice what those verses in the chapter say. Psalm 32 says this:

1 Happy is the person whose sins are forgiven, whose wrongs are pardoned. 2 Happy is the person whom the LORD does not consider guilty and in whom there is nothing false. 3 When I kept things to myself, I felt weak deep inside me. I moaned all day long. 4  Day and night you punished me. My strength was gone as in the summer heat. Selah 5 Then I confessed my sins to you  and didn’t hide my guilt. I said, “I will confess my sins to the LORD”  and you forgave my guilt. Selah 6 For this reason, all who obey you should pray to you while they still can. When troubles rise like a flood,  they will not reach them. 7 You are my hiding place. You protect me from my troubles and fill me with songs of salvation. Selah 8 The LORD says, “I will make you wise and show you where to go. I will guide you and watch over you. 9 So don’t be like a horse or donkey, that doesn’t understand. They must be led with bits and reins, or they will not come near you.” 10 Wicked people have many troubles, but the LORD’s love surrounds those who trust him. 11 Good people, rejoice and be happy in the LORD.  Sing all you whose hearts are right.

Headboard and Bed Frame

In this video Husband and I make the bed frame (well, I hardly helped with the frame 🙂 ) and headboard to match our nightstands. We used maple boards and maple plywood. Husband designed it all and he also CNC’d an image to put on the foot board. 

Now our bedroom set is complete! Thanks for watching!

Husband’s verse for the door on his side:

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life;
no one comes to the Father but through Me.

My verse for the door on my side:

Romans 16:19
…but I want you to be wise in what is good
and innocent in what is evil.
