So I guess I’m pretty much a blogger slacker I suppose. But here are a couple of things I have been working on lately.

The first is another cherry chair I have been oiling up I am using a new type of oil, bio-shield that is supposed to be completely non-toxic. So far I really like it, seems to really soak in the wood and I love the fact I can rub it on without gloves.

And the second thing I have been doing is splitting fire wood I suppose this is pretty honest work by itself but it is especially nice when you find a piece or two in the pile you can make something out of. What I’ve got so far is some white oak that I think will make a nice welsh style chair. So i put the firewood on hold long enough to shave a few spindles.


  1. All Good stuff! I wondering about this oil how does it compare to Tried and True Danish oil(If you have it that is) I can't seem to get their website to load. So what is the oil made from Linseed?

  2. Howdy Tim, here's a link to the oil. See if it will work for you.

  3. Really nice work. Can you share with me where i could fined plans to make a shave horse
    thank you tean
