Here's a sewing tip for ya, if you're interested. When you're basting, use a thread color that's drastically different than the final thread color. It makes pulling out those basting stitches waaaaaaaay easier!
I'm embarrassed how long it took me to figure this out. But, quite honestly, I used to avoid basting whenever possible. Now I appreciate the extra step and better lines it gives me.

We’re going “Live” tonight folks! Lotsa people have asked me to do live story sessions in the shop so later tonight I’m going to let you all see me and John apply the fifth coat of varnish. It’s gonna be a late night and I’ll try to answer your questions and say hi to peeps while we’re working. We’ll prolly start about 10PM so be on the lookout— I mean what better Saturday night activity than watching some dudes varnish a boat? 🤷🏼♂️🤣
Still not carving due to dodgy thumb but cheered up by stunning yarn bombing at local library. Gonna get carving training-wheels back on at carving course with Hape Kiddle at Heartwood Creative Woodworking http://heartwoodcreative.com.au #hapekiddle#woodworking#beherenow#doyouevencarvebro @heartwood_creative_woodworking @hapekiddle
After weeks of fitting, prefinishing, domino resizing, dry gluing and sequencing, there is actual glue in those joins and you can't take the thing apart and store it flat anymore. Took about an hour pre taping the joints, 15 minutes to glue up with @benpercydesigns and another 20ish minutes for fiddling and cleaning up. A slight overkill with the clamps but too many moving parts and too many angles to keep square, that left to their own devices want to shear in opposite directions. HOLY CR*P WE HAVE A BOX! *head explodes* 🤯 #tasmanianblackwood#woodworking#dowoodworking#diaryofawoodworkingstudent @heartwood_creative_woodworking
