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.

After running a test piece through for sizing, I ran each box side through the dado stack on both sides. The bottom and top panels will be installed identically.

I heard that blade changing videos are so hot right now. I wanted to cut a dado for the top and bottom panels in the box walls and the dado stack was by far the easiest method to do this.

First round of sanding, I’m using 80 grit on my random orbit to try to even everything out. Ideally, I’d use a planer, but don’t have one yet. These bench cookies are awesome for keeping the piece in place while sanding.

Just like the spine earlier, I’m using a small plane and card scraper to remove a bulk of the glue squeeze out before moving on to sanding.

I used a combination of a hand plane and card scraper to remove the spine from where the boards were resawed. Once that was removed, I taped the faces together and glued them up!

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.
