Have you heard about the bonus item for the raffle to benefit @raicestexas ? Christopher Schwarz of @lostartpress has very generously donated his personal first edition copy of his first book, “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest.” This was the first copy he had in his hands, and has a number of his markings on the interior, including his stamp and signature on the dedication and title pages. It is, of course, also a first edition and in a like-new condition. Can you believe it!? You can check out @clark_kellogg feed for all the official rules, but basically a $10 direct donation to @raicestexas = 1 raffle ticket. Comment on Clark’s post that you donated and then DM him a screenshot of your donation. Pretty simple, really. Better get to it. Friday is the last day.

Week 4, here we go! For this week’s #woodbenefitraices, we have this epic handmade sector by Brendan @burnheartmade Gaffney. As I am sure all of you already know, a sector “is a physical instrument made to aid in various proportional and geometric layout tasks. Produced from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries, this tool was used by gunners, navigators, surveyors and anyone performing physical calculations with dividers, compasses, pen and paper.  The “Cabinetmaker’s Sector” is a renewed version of the tool, scaled and revived for use by modern woodworkers. It has three scales to work with- the "Line of Lines," "Line of Circles" and "Line of Polygons."” If you are at all interested in manual drafting, or exploring how technical drawings were made before the digital era, or just beautifully made hand tools, you need to check out this fancy sector. **CUT TO THE CHASE, CHIEF. HOW DO I GET TO HAVE THIS THING.** Great question! Here are the details: each week, @lesliewebbdesign, @amateurhourwhat, @burnheartmade, @sarah_marriage and I will be donating a fabulous hand-made prize to a lucky winner.  100% of proceeds go towards @raicestexas. 
As some of you may know, @raicestexas  is on the front line of providing legal aid to children and refugees along our southern border. **BUT HOW DO I WIN THE FABULOUS PRIZES, I WANT TO WIN THEM ALL.** I’m so glad you asked! It’s simple! Just go to @raicestexas and donate $10 or more. (Link in bio!) Then, DM or email me a screenshot of your donation. DO NOT SEND ME MONEY. Every $10 will earn you one entry into the drawing, with the drawing itself being held this Saturday, July 28. The more you donate, the more chances you will have to win. Just leave a comment below that you have donated. 
Finally, and most importantly:  Don’t be a jerk! The goal is to help people. I cannot stress this enough. 
Thanks so much!

Recent photo shoot with @syd_furniture and @foxfurniture . It was so hot I thought I might pass out! The high gloss finish on @syd_furniture was a challenge because of reflections, but I think we got some good shots. And we had lots of fun styling the shelves of @foxfurniture . I really enjoy the challenge of photographing other people’s work. .

Have y’all seen the beautiful box by @clark_kellogg that’s available in this week’s raffle for @raicestexas ? Clark is one of the most talented furniture makers I know, and I’ve always wanted something he’s made. This box is curly spalted maple and lined with Port Orford cedar. Man, is it a beauty. And it could be yours for a mere $10. It’s pretty simple. Every $10 you donate to @raicestexas = 1 raffle ticket. You donate directly to them, take a screenshot showing the donation and DM it to @clark_kellogg . Pretty simple stuff. And as Clark says, the most important part is to not be a jerk. This is about helping people, nothing else.

We need your help getting the word out about the raffle for @raicestexas so at the very least, could you (yes, YOU) please like this post? That’s how IG works these days. 🤷‍♀️ This week 3 of my vases are the prizes for donating to @raicestexas . Every $10 = 1 raffle ticket. You donate directly. Take a screenshot of the donation and DM it to @clark_kellogg . If you have questions, feel free to ask. 
From @clark_kellogg :
Ok, here we go. Hey everyone! I am excited to announce a project I have been working on with @lesliewebbdesign , @sarah_marriage , @amateurhourwhat , and @burnheartmade over the last few weeks. As many of you know, children, refugees, and asylum-seekers are being forcibly detained along the U.S. border., with little to no legal representation. I think about if my own son got lost in the legal system, or had to represent himself in court (he is five), and I get sick, and sad, and angry. My first inclination is to go to sleep under my bench and hope that things will somehow be better when I wake up. (They will not be.) So, next step: make something, do something. 
Here is the plan: For the next five weeks (more or less), we will be holding a drawing for an item made by one of the fabulous makers mentioned above. Each drawing will start on Monday, and run through Friday at 5:00, with the drawing itself being held the following Saturday. ALL PROCEEDS WILL BENEFIT @RAICESTEXAS, a Texas-based non-profit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to under-served immigrant children, families, and refugees. (Link in bio!) To kick things off, maker extraordinaire Leslie Webb has generously donated three (count em three! And they’re usually $135 each!) of her wonderful flower vases - one each of cherry, maple, and walnut. 
RULES BELOW IN COMMENTS!

I came across this Langston Hughes poem from 1935, and somehow it feels like it could have been written now. I must admit, I am not feeling very 4th of July this year, considering what is happening at our southern border. Have you watched the video that @amateurhourwhat posted earlier today? It really highlights the absurdity of 3 year olds appearing in immigration court without representation. I hope you’ll consider donating to @raicestexas . See my previous post or check out @clark_kellogg for all the particulars on the raffle that’s going on. This week 3 of my vases are up for grabs, and there are some awesome things from @clark_kellogg @amateurhourwhat @burnheartmade @sarah_marriage in the upcoming weeks.

A few weeks ago, my good buddy @clark_kellogg reached out and asked me if I wanted to help raise some money for @raicestexas . Of course I said yes because what is happening out our border is horrifying. If you’re not familiar with @raicestexas , they are a non-profit that provides free and low cost legal services to under-served immigrant children, families, and refugees. This week we are raffling off three of my vases, one each of cherry, maple, and walnut. Swipe to see what will be available in the upcoming weeks. Every $10 donated is equivalent to one raffle ticket for the item(s) available that week. Check out the last post from  @clark_kellogg for all the rules. The goal is to raise as much as we can. Feel free to share to help us get the word out!

Honored to be interviewed, along with many other talented females, for the latest issue of American Craft Inquiry from @craftcouncil for an article on women woodworkers. Lots of great in depth essays in this one, including one on @ireland_beth . Check it out! .

Apologies for being MIA this week. I’ve been working on some house projects and new designs. This barstool is student work from 2005. I still love the lattice work and am incorporating it into a future project so stay tuned. Regular posting will begin in a few more days. Happy Friday everyone!

*Not my work* Last night I helped @foxfurniture get some photos of his beautiful lights. I had never photographed lighting before and was very nervous about it. It was the first time in a long time when I had no idea if the photos would turn out. Luckily, they did. And this design had been kicking around in his head for nearly a decade so he’s pretty pumped to get it to this point! I’ve got a couple of those, too, so maybe I can find some time to squeeze them in before the end of the year. 🤞 There’s never enough time, is there?

Got the new seat on the chair this weekend, and it’s out for delivery today. Ready for many more decades of use!

Removing the old caning and cleaning out the spline grooves has not been going very smoothly. The way the chair is constructed makes it almost impossible to get chisels into the grooves to thoroughly remove the old spline and glue. I consider this bad design. Everyone knows caning is going to fail at some point so better make replacing it as easy as possible. I had respect before, but even more now for craftspeople who replace woven seats. @sidecar_furniture @periodcraftsmen @silverriverchairs @dallascaning .

TBT Came across this photo this past weekend as I was reorganizing in my house. It’s from October 2001, me and my Percheron mare, Guinness, in Maine. This was before discovering woodworking and how I spent all my free time back then. When I bought her it was a total blink moment - she was 3 years old and had only been ridden three times! The man that owned her was a farmer who still plowed his fields with draft horses. She moved differently than the other drafts, and he couldn’t match her with another to make a team. It took a lot of work, but she is beautiful under saddle. And I found her in Uncle Henry’s, which is sort of like a printed booklet version of Craigslist for the state of Maine (does it still exist? I hope so!).
