How do you wire your panel? Even though it gets covered up, I believe your work is a representation of your workmanship. I try to keep my work as clean as possible, not only because it looks good, but because it will be easier to service in the future. It also leaves a signature of your work for future electricians. #keepcraftalive #electricians #sparky #electrician #residentialelectrician #construction #art #dewalt #kleintools
I have made a separate work account to document my electrical journey. If you want to see my work please follow @lit_city_electric. I will still post on here for a little while while I'm gaining followers on my other account. Thanks for the support! #residentialelectricians #electrician #sparky #keepcraftalive #kleintools

I love a round table in a square room!  What is your preference- round table or rectangle table?

Blank canvas. We are in the process of emptying this house out in preparation for a deep remodel and addition. This tiny main floor will nearly double in size in a complete re-imagination of this house. What do you think we should do around that fireplace? How about under those stairs?

Here’s a quick review from Austin @tools_at_work on the new M12 Rocket Light which should be hitting shelves right away.

New @milwaukeetool m12 rocket light is nice and compact sets up super quick. Being able to plug it in is great!  The legs sometimes stick a little and don’t want to lock into place either up or down. You just have to make sure it clicks in all the way.

Just finished up some rooms for a customer from last year! This time we painted the basement “man cave” and the upstairs bedroom. Check out our post tomorrow to see how the bathroom from last year turned out!

If you don't already have one, consider fitting your sub board with RCBO, which stands for Residual Current Breaker Operator. 
RCBO protects circuit and life if there is a fault in a circuit.

What started with just the floor arc quickly expanded into installing all of the storefront display elevations at the @vineyardvines in #georgetown.
•
It's incredibly satisfying to be recognized for your workmanship, but rewarded for your thoughtfulness and attention to detail.
•
We were initially invited by the hardwood floor contractor, CCI Hardwood Floor Specialists,, to help devise a plan for and execute the arc detail in the Teak+Holly. Once the GC started listening to our solutions, he began expanding our scope. I'd like to think it wasn't just because of their time crunch. 🤔
•
The platform tops and other millwork was manufactured by MRO Built, and nicely executed. @districtcustomwoodworks designed and fabricated the platform risers and assisted me in the install.
•
The railings with tension cable were a last minute add so I had to compete those solo. Not bad for my first go at the Rail Easy system! It was #tedious, but clearly a #winning architectural element.

Concrete demo- one of my favorite parts of the job. With the right tools, it is a straight forward and "easy" task. After layout, there's no thinking just brute force. Who wouldn't love it!

As any type of craftsman or artist, pursuing our dreams full time, I feel that we walk a fine line.. one that gets increasingly more difficult when raising a family. Every decision that we make will affect not only ourselves, but also our children and spouses. I count it a blessing to be fully bought into my dream of creating functional pieces of art. I have fully submersed myself in the pursuit of that endeavor, and my wife has backed me 100%. Day and night, I am constantly studying, practicing, learning, and planning what it means to take my skill to the next level. I’m always searching for that next bit of confirmation that this is what I am supposed to do.. that this is what I was put on this earth to do. Yet all the while, I feel that nagging in the back of my mind, asking if I am doing right by my family. It asks if they would benefit from me working a 9-5 desk job with benefits and retirement.. If my hard headed-ness and will to succeed is causing me to overlook other areas of my life that may be lacking because of it. I want to succeed in both business and life. And I hunger for the ability to create with my hands, always pushing my limits and growing as a craftsman. And also growing as a soul that has been blessed with the opportunity to be a father and a husband to the most amazing family a man could ask for. I know that these two things are the reason I was put here. But that doesn’t ease the struggle. If anyone else is battling this same little man standing on your shoulder, telling you that you can’t do this.. just know that you are not alone. We can fight together. We can do this. We will do this.

Standard Operating Procedures. For us it’s simple. Square,plumb, and level always. Then layout, pull measurements, cut and install. And repeat. It doesn’t matter what plane you are working on X,Y, orZ. It’s all the same. Thanks to good council we are documenting all SOP to streamline the flow of information to the trainees we bring in. .

4 months ago I’d never used a drawknife in my life. Now I’m scavenging flea markets, online, garages sales, etc. to find old rusty tools that I can put to good use. —————————————-

Some demo and framing in a century old mansion in Vancouver. Renovating places like this is always interesting. ·

After ripping the plaster off and exsposing the 1x6 T&G, you could almost leave it to conform to current barnboard style! We didn't, it ended up being covered with drywall.

Working late isn’t hard to do when you are sitting by a warm fire and doing what you love!

My love for hard labor is long running.  It’s where I found my purpose, place, and ability at a young age. 
Kept my head down.  Powered through the years. 
Hard earned progress has been so totally rewarding. 
Every now and then, I look up, when I feel I can afford to, when I know I have earned the opportunity to do so. : )

As my grandfather liked to say, “when you are the anvil, bare - when you are the hammer, strike”. Edwin Markham

Here’s a fun before and after picture. You can’t tell that well but the current deck floor joist were over-spanned. What does that mean? The deck floor was bowing badly in the middle. The stairs railings were also about to collapse. I guess you can say this new one is an upgrade 😊.

MIRRORS! I took around 20 photos and this was the only one my cats didn’t photo bomb. This cedar mirror is completed and ready for its new home. ________________________________________#cedar #frame #frames #woodmirror #mirror #bathroom #vanity #wood #reflection #woodwork #woodworking #unique #custom #yyc #carpentry #carpenter #renovation #mirrors #home #homedecor #wall #keepcraftalive #yycdesign #makersgonnamake #decor #design
As we start the beginning of the week let’s start fresh with priming all of our new drywall/texture.  we were able to get everything primer with 2 Coats.  We were also able to paint 2 coats of our ceiling paint.... cool thing was we were able to put a little bit of color on the walls for first coat.
 Thoughts?

If you go back to pervious post you would see that we are removing the non functional hallway and replacing it with a walk in pantry, coat closet and recessed refrigerator area..... We are going to bring this very outdated kitchen and dining area to current times!  My clients love to cook but unfortunately they only have one electric burner that works, and the oven does not bake evenly.  With a long list of other wishes and desires we are going to change everything about this the main floor. With walls moving, propane coming in and water moving locations..... this one is going to be beautiful..... just wait for the amazing view!

My brother in law grabbed this pic while we were putting in some hours on his kitchen renovation over the weekend. I had just removed the old window, which didn’t leave us with much room for a corner cabinet so we downsized to a 36x42, he actually says it doesn’t feel any smaller since there’s no more mullion...Cant forget about my @occidentalleather setup which is 🔥 😍

We don’t use aluminum coil stock often but when we do we start out with a small scrap to keep our marks consistent and save us time pulling out a tape measure. When you are doing repetitive tasks saving a second here and a second there can add up to an hour fast by the end of the day. .

Cut in this window to add light and ventilation to a bathroom. @lindakrd helped from start to finish and really impressed me with her desire to learn. She jumped in using all the tools and learned the process, and asked a lot of questions. The window is a @harveybuildingproducts casement with a simulated meeting rail to match the double hung windows existing in the house. Inside was trimmed out with poplar 1x4 to match the existing home. Pocket screws and glue held it together to insure it will stay like this for years to come. Outside will be trimmed with @versatex_trimboard to match existing 1920's trim, but be maintenance-free.

Been working on replacing all the windows, skylights and sliders with @andersen_corporation 400 series. This is only a few of them but wanted to show our process. Install and flash with vycor, pre assemble all trim (glue and pocket screw) then pop into place for a dry fit, take down and ready to spray to desired color and rehang. Plenty more to show within the next few days after everything is painted🙌🏻#windowtreatments #andersenwindows #miratec #windows #keepcraftalive #craftsmanship

This is the only first person shooter I play these days. Man, that #walnut just pops when you hit it with the sealer. 15 doors/drawer fronts for this 8’ vanity. #carpenter #fujispray #lacquer #moderncraftsman #keepcraftalive #customvanity #buffalo
It’s not sexy but this is the growth of my #business as a #builder  Forms all set for the #monolithic pour.  Thanks for checking it out and hope everyone had a smooth Monday! 😎 #jwwoodworks #jdwcontractingllc
This hand hewn oak beam is full of character and an awesome story. This beam was part of a large barn built circa 1850 near the Sourland Mountain of New Jersey. This barn was being demolished after sitting neglected for years. Woodrow & Co was happy to salvage most of the beautiful hand hewn timbers. This piece can be used as a coffee table or even a bench. The dark finish emphasizes the hew marks, character and sheer size of this beam. It’s incredible to think about the work put into constructing these barns in the 18th and 19th century. #woodrowco #knowwhereitcomesfrom
