Walnut Dressing Vanity Build

To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material

  1. Curious what your thoughts are on the affordability of making your own trim and baseboards out of trees that you mill yourself. Is there a business model there for home remodelers?

    1. Could be. Just depends on how much your time is worth. If you’re already milling lumber, then yes. A molder would quickly pay for itself especially if you’re looking to make higher end trim.

  2. The planer that you changed the head to a spiral, was it a lobo 20″?????
    I have a 20″ Lobo and am looking to change the straight cutter to spiral.
    Mine is built in 1993.

  3. Hi Matt. I’ve been watching for a while. I like your approach to woodworking and especially like your urban logging efforts to rescue wood that would otherwise get turned into firewood or just left to rot. I think my favorite project of yours was the Something From Nothing box, where you welcomed your child home and then made something. Nice.
    My main question: You’ve been slabbing tree trunks for quite a while. Do you find yourself wondering what the slabs would look like from trees you see when you’re driving around?
