HANGING DOORS PART ONE. as requested by you guys. First step is vital if one of your ends is lower by lets say an 1/8 you add that 1/8 to that side of jamb when you cut them so your door sits nice and level and wont have gaps. Pending casing fits i center door in R/O. Hinged side gets shimmed first i will shim top then plumb down and shim bottom then i rest my level on those (plumb shims) and shim in between. Once that stud is shimmed plumb, door is ready to be set. I will post part 2 tmrw so drop some feedback below and comment with questions !! HANGING DOORS PART ONE. as requested by you guys.

It’s cold and rainy here today but I had to get out and get my woodworkers Secret Santa gift done. I also worked on this again. I have the roof cut and ready to put on but had to do some kind of finish on the inside before attaching it. Now I just need to figure out the steeple and how it will fit with the roofs overhang. I always seem to back my way into a project. Happy Saturday y’all!
This Friday we present you with Turn a New Leaf, the multi-faceted endeavor of Tracey Marsh and Henry Krieger. Their focus is on sustainability, in their use of forest products as well as their every day lives. In addition to building Montessori furniture and selling it across North America, Henry owns and operates a small mill. He mills both local hardwoods and softwoods, selling them as dimensional stock or using them for furniture or building construction. Henry occasionally holds workshops and seminars, and he has mentored and apprenticed students throughout his vocation.
He loves working with all woods but his "go to" is Douglas Fir, specifically old-growth, vertical grained heart wood. Henry likes Douglas Fir because "the tree as a plant species is so extremely grand and noble and the overwhelming versatility of the wood itself, from some of the finest most refined musical instruments to the largest heavy structural timbers around." He has used this species throughout his career and has always attained it from recycled, reused, or salvaged sources like historic buildings or dredged logs.

Shows and events are great and all. But being side by side with other like-minded folks...is a whole other deal. This is my friend Amanda from @little.tall.rulers, she’s an incredible hand burner, who does a great job with her side hustle. I loved watching her friends and family come by her table and support her last night. That’s what it’s all about. Our community, THIS community. Supporting your maker friends, or your friend who just started their own thing. Or your brother who’s been working his butt off. Us makers love the encouragement and the validation...every freakin speck of it.
If you have the opportunity to put your money into the hands of a small business, then please do so. Because we ACTUALLY care.
Do you have a maker friend that you love watching grow? Or do you have a cheerleader? Shout’em out! They deserve a pat on the back!
