Video: How to Flatten Wide BoardsThe Power of the Simple Scratch StockVideo: How To Build a Table in 60 Seconds
My whole life has been spent making. Whether it’s wood, metal, fabric, music or video, I will make whatever it is that interests me. For me, making things isn’t a career, it’s a lifestyle. In this video, I make a dining room table out of quarter sawn sycamore with natural edges. The client determined the material and after searching around locally for it I had no option but to have it milled and to dry it over months in a kiln. During those long months waiting for the sycamore to dry I made many other furniture pieces and videos which are shown in a montage from month to month. The montage ends as the sycamore is loaded in my truck and the construction of the dining room table resumes. On a personal note: the video begins in March of 2011, just after my girlfriend of 6 years broke up with me. It was heartbreaking. But looking back at all the awesome projects I was fortunate enough to work on because of my newfound flexibility, it makes me think she did me a favor 😉
