JP Signs in Mason does my work. Small but awesome company.
Those are the best kind. Ours is 90 lbs and still cuddles every day. 90lb snuggler
I’m not very tall.
Is it all nails/screws for the joinery?
Glue, pin nails and screws depending on the location. Screws are all hidden. Everything is glued.
Looks great, been hunting for threaded inserts to make some tap handles, do you mind sharing where you found what you used?
ACE Hardware had them in stock. They said it was a common item.
I have read that they are available at Lowes. I found them on Amazon but I plan to try Lowes first. I will follow up if I find them.

The tile is nice, no obvious patterns or odd bits. Lots of work
Are you gonna mount any art or gasp a TV above the fireplace? :P
I am sure the wife will find something nice. No TV though.
Looks awesome! I love that beam. Where did you get it from? Architectural salvage?
There is a place near me that salvages barns and sells the wood. It is in Mason, MI if that is in any way close to you.
3rd from left. No good reason why, I just like it best.
I have attempted to sharpen the tools but I have no frame of reference to know if they are sharp or not. I consistently break the part when I start shaping the bottom of the piece. The one time that I got it right it broke as soon as I tried to tool the end. I moved from between points to a screw chuck. It immediately started wobbling and shattered.
My guess is that this is partly dull tools and partly working with pine, any truth to that?
“Life’s to short to turn soft woods”
Or something like that. Heard it somewhere and couldn’t agree more.
Ours had free reign until we bought a new couch. We got couch alarms to train him and it worked!
Unfortunately, I am weak and wanted to cuddle a couple times, so now he is right back to not asking for permission and just hopping up.
May look into the alarm. This couch is days old.
How far in is the base to get the floating look?
Good luck little buddy.
Did you do a resin top?
You should feed your dog raw.
Bones and all.
Do some research on the B.A.R.F. Diet.
Unless if your dog is SUPER picky and has to have food warm or something lol.
I will read up on that. This was just leftovers from firing up the charcoal grill on a cold Michigan night.
Wow. Who could criticize.
I’m very new to woodwork, I’m curious how you get that finish? Thanks, nice work!
Epoxy. Buy it cheap at Lowe’s and follow the directions to a T. Very easy to do it is just time consuming.
What kind of epoxy? Did you have to clean up the sides or does it dry pretty even?
Famowood glaze coat. Available at Lowe’s. Thinner in the sides than on the top but it left a nice finish. It left massive drips off the bottom but I hit it with a sharp chisel and sanded it down.
Shit I have no idea man.
It just seems wasteful to buy something only to destroy it. It seems like you know what you're doing
If you look at the light on the website you will see that i didn’t really destroy it. I just routed the existing wires through the beam.
You're going to want to cut the ceiling and anchor that kind of weight right into the joists.
I hit two joists with 1/2 bolts plus I hit the previous 2x4 that spanned those joists 3 more times. I hung from it before I hung the fixture and I go 205
