    It's what I do for a living... (I did actually make more money in 2018 and 2019 from music, than woodworking(but not the last couple)

    One of my latest projects was refreshing a set of mahogany doors:

    These are just a few fo the things I do all the time... I love working with wood. I enjoy it almost as much as stage time.... Almost.

    Those doors came out very well, very rich color, cool installation with that beam too. I like the knots in the tele.

    Hey, I recognize that thread! :D Those are great looking adirondack chairs, I'm hoping to add a new patio by the kids playground set, and wanted to make some of those!

    I don't know if it's cool to link to a thread on another forum, but here's the room we've been remodeling for the last few weeks.

    It's funny, I don't usually get surprised by a completed project very often. Usually, I'm so done and just ready to move on to the next project (ADHD, what's a brother to do?). But, this one was different.

    I installed them in one day, but needed to install some different hardware, and tweak one side of the jam to level up the doors... So, as I was driving back the second morning, driving past, to make a u-turn and park. The sun was just right and the doors were glowing golden! It literally made me snap my head over to look at them. It literally shocked me at how beautiful the wood had turned out.


    The Tele was made out of SYP cut down in 1855. They were floor joists up until about 2007 or 2008. There's knots and termite tracks and has this really rich warm tone (visual) to the wood. It's a ***** to work with, as it clogs sandpaper, gums up bandsaw blades... But, good gracious it smells wonderful, it's beautiful to look at and I really, really like the way this Tele sounds and feels!

    Came across this one scrolling through my photos. We needed a mantle for our fireplace back in Los Angeles so I asked my father in law to see if he could find an old post laying around their ranch in Texas. There are structures there from the 1880’s so I thought that’d be a cool bit of history. He found this piece of cedar that had been part of an old, now dilapidated cabin. It was covered in sand, bark and cow muck. After a very messy day with a grinder it began to look like something from the Green Dragon in Hobbiton. I finished it with Dutch Oil. We took it with us when we moved but I still need to find a place for it.
