Matt’s Weekly Shop Update

Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – May 23, 2017
Pretty full week around the shop.  Lindsay spent some time over the weekend in the shop finishing up the cloud shelves that she started back in February and earlier in the week, I removed all lumber from my shop that isn't part of a project that I'm working on.  Around the sawmill, I moved the last of my big logs up onto the bed and I made more of the stack levelers so I can finish stacking all the slabs I've been cutting.

Outside this week, I was able to get my stack of ash all ready for drying.  The smaller log was temporarily stacked in my driveway after I cut it into slabs.  In the shop, I worked on the porch swing/day bed thingy.

A productive week outdoors.  I slabbed up a goofy maple log and my friend, Jim, dropped off some logs and spent the day with me slabbing the big ash log.  In the shop I started working on a porch swing bed thing.

Finally back outside using the sawmill again.  I've had the round that I cut off of the white oak log sitting on the mill for over a month waiting to be cut into cookies.  In the shop, I started working on the counter top for my parents' laundry room.

I ended up spending most of the week down with the flu but when I was feeling alright, my dad and I started prepping my drying area for all the new slabs that I have been cutting.  At the start of this week, I got back into the shop and finished construction on the bed.  The next step for it will be finish prep.

I was down for a few days with the flu but I've been making progress on the bed by getting the headboard and footboard glued up.  I also got to spend a day last week running my chainsaw mill for the first time in 11 months.  I've missed it.

I made a good amount of progress on the bed by completing the joinery on the headboard but I still have some design decisions to make.  I also spent some time at the lathe turning a few bowls for the Habitat for Humanity's Spring Gala.

I finished slabbing the smaller ash log that I had up on the mill last week and also milled up my neighbor's birch tree.  At the computer, I finished editing the farmhouse table videos and in the shop, I experimented with a live edge treatment for the bed project.
