Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Sept 23, 2017
I'm back from my trip to the UK with my almost complete chair.  In a few weeks after I'm done with the highboy, I'll be finishing it up and gluing it together.  On the highboy, I added the knee blocks to the lower case and glued up the panels that will start to form the upper case.

Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – August 25, 2017
I've been busily tearing the bandsaw mill apart so I can finish up some minor things that I never felt like doing when I built it in the winter and to paint the remaining unpainted parts. In the shop, I finished the internals of the lower highboy case.

I'm back from my trip to Denver. Marc and I finished filming our picture frame making videos and also decided to each to a project video. Marc went with making a garden gate and I made a bar stool. Back in my shop, I spent some time adding the drawer dividers to the lower case of the highboy.

Chris stopped by for the day and we recorded a few segments for his upcoming Chopumentary and also milled up a walnut log. In the shop, I made a pair of replacement handles for my wheelbarrow and started working on a crosscut sled.

We had some beautiful weather so I was able to get outside and cut up the maple log and get started cutting the walnut that I had picked up a couple weeks ago. In the shop, I continued working on the cabriole legs by turning the pad and shaping the foot.

Really getting into production of the highboy project. The lumber selection is out of the way and I'm on to working on the cabriole legs, which is a first for me but I've been wanting to make a set of these legs for a long, long time.
