18 Aug Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Aug 17, 2017
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.
