After a year of struggle to get a body of work together to have a show… I finally did it again. My college, the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design is having a weekend Art Sale for it’s students and alumni. The Reception was last night and I was really well received. It was amazing going “home” to where I spent 8 years of my life… to show my peers what I have done with my talent. And I find that I am so proud to be a woodworker.. proud that I make my own frames...
After taking the Summer off (and enjoying it immensely!) it was time to get back to Work!

Recently, I have been doing a ton of projects that require me to stick a template to some wood so I can use a router with a flush-trim bit. I never found a double-sided tape that I liked. Either they weren’t sticky enough and were unreliable, or they where far too sticky and took a pry-bar to separate later and left nasty residues on the wood and pattern. Well, my searching is over! I routinely “shop” at the “American Science & Surplus” online store...
Hello fellows, Today I woud like to share with you how brazilian cut the waste at PVC band.
