I’ve been busy working on numerous things. In the shop, I continued on with the spice box project and on the sawmill, I cut a pecan log. I also got the slabs back from being vacuum dried and I have a thin slab product in the works.

Looking through a pile of beech firewood, which is very common in Switzerland, we found some spalting going on in a few logs. Instead of just burning wood with such a nice grain and texture, I cut them up to let them dry to stop the rotting. Patrizia from foifedrissg made several spoons out of this wood and I tried my best to capture the whole relaxing and enjoyable process of making a beautiful spoon.
Here are some pictures of a table I made for my parents for their screen porch at their cottage. It is made from solid rustic hickory, the base is done with mitered mortise and tenon joinery, the voids and knot holes are filled with pourable epoxy and it is finished with Zar exterior water based polyurethane. I threw in one picture with a couple of my “shop helpers”
