Social Media

I am active on a number of social media platforms. I have listed each platform below as well as how I use it.

Out of all social media platforms, I am most active on Instagram. I post there daily (with pictures forwarded to Twitter too), but am also very involved with the maker community there. I love seeing what other makers are doing and seeing what that community thinks and is up to.

I post somewhat regularly to Twitter. Any picture (not video) I post to Instagram will also be posted to Twitter. I am trying to also post more regular updates as to what I am doing in the moment. Twitter will not always include additional media, but will become more active as time goes on.

Pinterest is one of the main avenues I use to generate ideas. While I do have boards dedicated to traditional shop, DIY, and making topics, I also pin things I like from other areas. This helps with creativity when I have a problem to solve, but the solution could use some extra theming or decoration. For example, I love Star Wars and Marvel. While a particular solution might not directly involve either of those, I am always looking for opportunities to incorporate themes and other interests in solutions.

A majority of these pins are not items I have built, but items I want to use for ideas. I will occasionally put my own content in these boards, but the predominant use is to generate ideas to incorporate together for a unique solution.

For cross cuts, I prefer using the miter saw whenever possible. Here, I flip the ply since it’s too wide for one pass. Using a stop block makes this incredibly easy, but placing the saw teeth in the groove works well too.

On to some shop organization. I’m using a fence extension on my table saw to rip down the plywood. If you measure both sides of the saw, you’ll end up with a cut that is square.

Today’s #stateoftheshop is I’m still working on clean up. Coffee is required. I’ll try to put more status in my stories if you’d like to follow along!

Today’s #stateoftheshop is in dire need of cleanup and organization. I still have offcuts and scraps from the office build and everything since. Need to go through everything and decide what I’m tossing, keeping, and where it’s all going. Anyone else in the shop but not building today?

Swipe ➡️ I also played with a more stylized edit of the prop gun I painted for Halloween. First picture is “normal” edit for color, second is stylized with different lighting. What would make these pictures better?

I am somewhat active on Facebook. Almost all content posted here is selectively generated from Instagram. I usually only post the final pieces rather than the behind-the-scenes building content that I consistently post to Instagram.
