This part was tricky! I had to route end grain to insert the rail hardware. My work bench made all the difference for this task. I used clamps to extend the reference surface and installed a guide on my trim router then cleaned everything up with chisels. I know the holding power of end grain is limited so I installed dowels to reinforce the screws. By far the toughest part of the build. Everything worked out in the end.
Another picture of my curly maple Charcuterie board. I am kind of in love with the curl in this board.
I realize I haven’t talked about myself on insta and that’s what artist are supposed to do haha. My names Gabriel. I don’t now how to talk about my road to doing what I do anyway though so I’m just gunna tell ya random stuff. I’m 21 years old. I grew up homeschooled just 3 miles outside of Detroits east side (Roseville & Saint Clair Shores) Always mad that I lived in the city and not in the wild. Most of my time was spent eating random garden weeds and climbing our family’s birch tree. I checked under our yards logs and rocks every day for bugs and always had binoculars on me. I was instantly hooked on carving after meeting a distant relieve who whittles birds in the round. That’s was when I was 11 and haven’t seen him since. It annoyed the hell out of my dad every weekend to go to Home Depot to buy another sheet of plywood for my fort I build over a summer. I created my LLC as soon as I turned 18 and have been lost trying to make money at what I just love doing ever since. I live in Detroit now and have a studio in Ferndale that I share with 4 other amazing craftsman. I still feel like I could spend all my time looking for millipedes under rocks all day and don’t feel like a business man. Making things is what I do and I hope I’ll never have to stop 📸 by @brightlightcreative

Making the littlest feet for the base of the console. After working on a lot of larger legs recently, these are quite a change of pace. Also the first time I’ve used this sander with the table at an acute angle, worked great! #designdetails

🌹Otro tronquito de sabina que se pone en el torno sin saber muy bien que saldra y aqui el resultado... feliz Sant Jordi a todo el mundo!
I love this part of any piece I make... Making drawers is one of the most enjoyable jobs.
Me encanta esta parte de la construcción de cualquier pieza. Realizar los cajones es uno de los trabajos que más disfruto. 😀
