They're installed! Actually we got the cabinets in Friday evening. The client is super pleased and so are we. We still need to install the island and top and a few small details. When we build our own kitchen we will probably go with hickory too. I just love the mix of colors!

All fixed and finished. Can you tell which door I had to fix? (Without looking at my previous post! No cheating!)

Saved it! I was worried I was going to have to rebuild the whole door. I trimmed the stile off even with the rails and broke the pieces off. I had to clean up a the broken bits with a chisel. Now I can cut a new stile and we will be fine! Who else does dumb crap like this right at the final stretch of a project!?!?!

Well poop. I drilled a hinge mount hole on the front of the door.

Ashley just finished a custom order for two pairs of NM earrings made from walnut. One pair is turquoise and the second pair had red and green beads that represent NM's state question...Red or green!
You can also see that we now have two sizes!
Each pair of earrings comes on an earring display card with clear backs to secure the earrings.
We hope to have more pairs made, some in walnut, but also padauk, cedar, ash, and maybe even algerita!

Got the upper boxes assembled and lack one lower cabinet and the island to put together. I pre-finshed the faceframes and used pre-finshed ply for these cabinets to speed up the process.

Before and after finish. I love using this Acrylic Conversion Coating from Sherwin Williams. Drys fast, looks good, and it doesn't totally cover up the wood grain. #finishfriday #cabinetbuilder #customcabinets #craftsmanstyle #craftsmankitchen #hickorykitchen #hickory

Getting some finished laid down today! What do y'all think of my little pop up spay booth? It's a 4'x6' canopy tent from Wal Mart with some painters plastic for walls. The fan is a cheap 20" fan with a 20"x20" filter. This has really helped with the overspray and pushes more of the harsh fumes out the door. #cabinetbuilder #customcabinets #cloudcroftnm #craftsmanstyle #smallbusiness #smallcabinetshop #finishfriday @ Cloudcroft, New Mexico

I'm really liking this hardware for these Craftsman style cabinet doors. And this hickory is some beautiful stuff! Definitely not a boring wood. Lot of different colors and grain patterns going on. #customkitchencabinets #kitchencabinets #craftsmankitchen #craftsmanstylehome #craftsmanhome #cabinetbuilder #hickorykitchen #hickory #woodgrain #cloudcroftnm #cloudcroft

Tight and accurate cope and stick door joint. I use this Shaker profile bit all the time. Just the small angle on the shoulder is a nice detail.

10/22/2019

Putting this new coping sled to work. Much safer and more accurate than holding the piece by hand.

Do you love New Mexico as much as my wife, Ashley, does? If so then you definatly need a pair of NM earrings handmade by her, made from beautiful wood.

There is still time for custom pieces to be made, so if you don't see exactly what you want let me know and I can do my best to create an amazing piece that fits your needs!

What do you think of these inset Craftsman style doors? I made a trial run in alder for my shop cabinets. The set I'm working on will have a hickory frame with a flat hickory panel. I really like this style. I hope to do more like this. #cabinetbuilder #craftsmanstyle #craftsmanhome #craftsmankitchen

Can you do this with your cabinets??? About 220 lbs of pure muscle hanging from this cabinet! I built this shop cabinet from an ugly red oak entertainment center. I use use tongue and groove joinery on the cabinet boxes for extra strength. I use the same method for kitchen cabinets too. That's why you pay more for custom quality made cabinets! #cabinetbuilder #customcabinets #kitchencabinets

Got a new Woodslicer blade from @highlandwoodworking in the @grizzlyindustrial bandsaw. My phone there Woodslicer blade lasted more than a year but it broke. But it didn't break on the weld! I think a piece of wood was in between the bottom wheel and the blade and it popped as soon as I turned it on. These blades are awesome for resawing! If you haven't yet, try one out!

Not woodworking, but still got something done today. I did some mechanic work on the Fordmobile. Swapped out the third member with an Eaton TruTrack and put in new axels. I will feel a lot better this winter on these snowy roads. It's also going to help a lot with pulling heavy loads and trailers on gravely roads. #fordnineinch #TheFordMobile

So nice to have dedicated plywood storage!!! Sheet goods are such a pain to organize. I've needed this for a couple of years. This rack also has bonus nooks in the A frame for lumber. I based this off of a plan out of @woodcraft_magazine . I bought the plan from Woodcrafts website. I made mine shorter and wider to accommodate more sheet good storage since I have decent lumber racks on the wall. I should be able to put 10 or 11 sheets per side. How do y'all like to store your sheet goods. #shopprojects #shoporganization #keepitclean

Figured I need to show off the beetle kill pine farmhouse table a little more! This wood has such danged cool colors in it. Thanks again to @meinthewoods for helping out what the the legs and Caleb at @bloomandgrowpediatrics for the wood. Pretty handy that I can take my kids to the Doctor and get lumber from the same people! Lol. I think one of my favorite details on the table is the little bit of live edge that peaks through around the table top. The apron of the bench has live edge all around. This table is going to be right at home in the owners cabin.

Here's the next project. Got a good deal on this Fisher woodstove. It really doesn't need much work. I'm going to brush it off then paint it hunter green with some hi temp paint. It needs a few fire bricks and a hinge pin on the door. This is going to be a great stove for the shop because I am tired of paying outrageous bills for propane! #woodstove

I'm using shop made table top buttons the attach the top to the base. The top will want to expand and contract with the seasons. These buttons allow the top to expand and contract while still keeping it secured to the base. #beetlekillpine #bluepine #farmhousetable #reclaimedwood #custommade #cloudcroft #shoplocal #smallbusiness

I'm struggling with how I want to finish this table. I'm concerned about the sappy areas in this beetle killed pine. I'm either considering doing a coat of shellac to seal the sap then spraying a coat of acrylic conversion coating... orrrrrrr going with about 4 coats of Waterlox. Any suggestions???

The profile cutter makes quick work of the ball shape at the top of the leg. Two straight plunge cuts and it's done! #cncwoodworking #beetlekillpine #bluepine #reclaimedwood #tablelegs #farmhousetable #cloudcroftnm

09/13/2019

Cutting the countour of the leg using a 1.5" round core bit. The countour is one large radius so you have to use the round bit. The flat surfacing bit can't follow a curved surface. #cncwoodworking #beetlekillpine #bluepine #tablelegs

Finishing off by cutting the leg to length using a 1/4" spiral bit. #cncwoodworking #beetlekillpine #bluepine #tablelegs @meinthewoods

Made some nice pirate peg legs last night with @meinthewoods using their Legacy CNC lathe. Seeing that I don't know any pirates I will probably use them for a table the beetle killed pine table. We did a couple of test runs on the bench lega, so of any pirates need a leg let me know. #beetlekillpine #bluepine #cncwoodworking #cloudcroftnm

Well that was #oddlysatisfying . Lol. That was Titebond III on the outfeed table that I sprayed with @sherwinwilliams Acrylic Conversion Coating. Good stuff!

Back home from our vacation in Belize! So awesome! Such a beautiful country with friendly people. I found a board on the beach on one of our walks. I believe it's some sort of mahogany. I decided to carve a little sign for the condo that we stayed in. I challenged myself to only use a 1/2" chisel. I'm not very good and sitting still. Carving is a treat to me. Its version of chilling out and letting my mind go blank for a few hours. I really like how the coconut trees look like they are swaying in the sea breeze. I did a chip carving style on the trunks which lends itself to a straight blade. I will definitely be packing a few carving knives for the next trip down to Belize. #belize #mahogany #woodcarving #islandtime #icantbelizeit

My projects have been all over the place lately! Here are a couple aromatic cedar sign blanks for @einthewoods7718 . The big one is going to be a 3'x5' oval and the smaller is going to be a 16"x32". Looking forward to seeing these signs carved on the CNC.

Installed the roughsawn and metal kitchen cabinets yesterday. They look great with the turquoise countertops look cool with the blue walls. I will get some more pictures when the kitchen is finished up.
