    Butternut Dining Table : Tjbaum
    I kind of have an amazing hookup with a retired guy that has a big slabber bandsaw and a logger friend and likes to mill wood so I get amazing slabs at ridiculously low prices... today I picked up seven 19" wide black locust slabs and three more 33" wide butternut slabs.

    • Love the beautiful wood.  Your use of butterflies sets it off.  Great work!  You just had Butternut slabs laying around in your shop?  Seriously that's awesome.  I'm throughly jealous.

    Walnut Dining Table and Coffee Table : Tjbaum
    A fellow maker friend helped me put with the legs and we fabricated them locally specifically for the dimensions of this table. If your close to stl we could probably help you out. I would also highly recommend rubio monocoat 2c for hardwood finishing, its amazing stuff.

    Walnut Dining Table and Coffee Table : Tjbaum
    Thanks, this table is one of my favorites we've done so far and I cant wait to do the next with the other two slabs from this log. I think we are going to go with copper colored legs and epoxy.

    • Wow! These look fantastic.  Each of the style pieces you chose look great together.  The table leg design is super cool.

    • The dinning table looks amazing.  No that the coffee table doesn't but I love the bow ties.  I have a couple boards that I have been saying I'm gonna do something with for too long now.  Mine are maple but I love your walnut.  Also, really like the legs.  Did you buy them locally or on-line?  I saw ones on Amazon that I was thinking of getting.

    Wooden Comb Experiment : Tjbaum
    Yes I made a box joint jig for the table saw and created a first cut template. I got an old 1x42" sander to sand between the teeth and shape the points. I used the ryobi benchtop sander to shape the curves.

    Circle Farmhouse Table : Tjbaum
    Thanks! It was not our first table, we've done a few dozen by now. It was our first round dining table, before this we had only done smaller round tables.

    Oak Barnwood Truss Table Sets : Tjbaum
    I really enjoyed seeing the oak transform from what looked like wood destined for a burn pile to beautiful tabletops. Most of all I enjoyed seeing the excitement and smiles when we delivered them to their new home.

    Walnut Live Edge Table Set : Tjbaum
    I really enjoyed cutting and putting in the butterflies, but my favorite was right at the end, spreading the oil on and seeing the walnut transform.

    Queen Loft Bed : Tjbaum
    I just kind of designed/built it as I went... its 4x4 for the posts, 2x6 for the mattress rails, and 2x4 for the rest of the frame. I used 1x4s for the mattress supports and a 2x2 attached to the 2x6 rail for the 1x4s to rest on.

    My favorite part was cutting the tongue and groove, this project was the excuse I needed to finally buy the bit set.

    Koken Wood Shop : Tjbaum
    Currently I'm working on a vanity, a set a pipe shelves, and two tables sets with matching benches and chairs. Next up is a live edge walnut table and bench. Additionally, I've been playing around with making beard combs with exotic cutoffs I found in a clearance bin.

    • Wow, what a nice setup. The building architecture and history seems like a great inspiration for creativity. I'm envious of all the space and the ability to work on multiple projects at once. Looking forward to seeing more projects coming out of your shop.

    The New Craft/Project room : Tjbaum
    I do a lot of pipe shelving, I've found you can cut the cost a lot by getting the flanges and joints on Amazon and buying a long pipe and having home Depot cut it in smaller lengths.

    New live edge bar shelves : Tjbaum
    Thanks, we did the dog bowl a while ago but it never made it on here. Actually part two of this project is to do another shelf with holes in it to put near the floor to replace that dog bowl stand.

    • Very cool. I need to learn how build and set up floating shelves.
