21 Nov Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Nov 17, 2017
My friend Brandon brought me a couple of silver maple logs that have some spalting starting to form. Those will get milled up sometime during the frigid winter. In the shop, I got the goosenecks attached to the case and have moved on to the side returns.

Upholstered Chair by Moritz
My name is Moritz, I’m from Germany and I am 18 years old. I am starting to study as a wood engineer next year and I have to do some apprentice work prior to the start of the study.
This chair is part of this work and it’s the first time for me working on a upholstery project. I’ve done some wood projects before but this was completely new to me and I think it turned out okay.
Machinist Tool Chest by Bob
I decided to challenge myself and make an attempt to build a machinist tool chest. 2 ½ years and about 800 hours of labor, this is what I designed with my own plans and built. It’s 13” deep, 19” tall, and 23” wide, with a large open compartment on top and 10 drawers. Made of red oak, Minwax Early American stain and 2 coats of polyurethane.
