In case you missed it, this is my latest project. I made a bluetooth speaker from a kit and an odd shaped piece of wood. I wanted to try something a little different than I'm used to by going for an artsy look. It turned out better than expected and it has a more modern feel than anything. The wood I used was an off-cut of the Osage Orange slab bench that I made a few weeks back and the phone stand is made out of Sapele. I used a bit of engineering to attach the stand. :) See what I mean by checking out the article and video on my website. Click the link in my bio at @stoneandsonsworkshop
Here's a #throwbackthursday for ya... One of my favorite builds from last year. I turned a slab of Osage Orange into a bench using bowties and dowels. Click the link in my bio at @stoneandsonsworkshop for the website article and video. #sick #bench
Adding a few safety features to my clamp rack has paid for itself a few times since making it. For some reason when my kids come into the shop my youngest son likes to play with the clamps, but with the safety stops and the lowered top shelf it is a lot safer. The safety stops prevent the clamps from walking out and the lowered top shelf prevents the possibility of a clamp being pushed up and falling out. Anyone with kids in the shop would benefit from these safety features. Click the link in my bio at @stoneandsonsworkshop to access the plans.
A wooden doormat is one of those quick win projects you can complete in one day. I actually did an experiment where I made three different projects in one day. This doormat was one of those projects along with the end grain coasters and a pen. I've mentioned those projects here lately to encourage those that want to create quick projects.

This is a good mix of wood and clamps. I'm not real sure why I used such a mix of clamps on this glue up, but it goes to show you can make it work with what you have on hand. Sometimes we think we can't do something because we don't have everything we need or we get caught up in the I need that game to get the job done. I say start where you are and with what you have. You'll be surprised with what you can do with little. Click the link in my bio to check out our website. #clamp
I got a taste for power carving with my friends @jaybates86 and @woodworking1 a while back and loved it, so I decided to try it on a larger scale. I wouldn't necessarily say I succeeded with the attempt to power carve an entire chair, but I will say that I power carved until my heart was content. I really think I bit off a little more than I could chew. I made a plan for a chair carving blank if you're interested and want to try it yourself. I include links in the plan to the discs I used as well. Click the link in my bio at @stoneandsonsworkshop for the plan. #powercarving
For #handtoolthursday I'm showing that a 4 foot dry wall square can also be used to draw curves. @jaybates86 and I used this in the vanity/dartboard build. It was consistent enough to hold an even curve unlike a thin piece of wood. I know they make a bow for this very thing, but we didn't have one nor did we make one.

Sometimes I keep cool cutoffs from projects. This was from the end grain coasters that I made. I had a bunch of scraps that I just threw together and sliced off as coasters and this is what I was left with. It kind of reminded me of an aerial shot of a city. Are you a wood hoarder or are you more of a I'll never use that kind of woodworker? To see the coaster project and video click the link in my bio at @stoneandsonsworkshop #scraps #coasters
