What I’ve been up to…

Well, I managed to miss the whole month of April on this blog, so I thought I'd post an update for those of you who follow it.

My own path has been moving further from remodeling and toward woodworking, cabinetry, and now furniture.

(I have a mental hierarchy in my mind that goes like this: trim carpentry graduates to cabinetmaking, which is below furniture building. Then at the top is musical instruments or maybe the “arrow carver”?? See Cole Porter on that one.)

Anyway, I'm in that transitional phase between cabinetry and furniture. Here's a piece I built recently. This was not a completely solo effort, but it was mostly my baby.

Furniture-style vanity

The other big development, and somewhat related, has been the recent opportunity to go deeper with CNC-based woodwork and design. (Translation: programming a robot to do lots of your work for you.) For good or ill, this is the future. Hopefully in future entries you'll get to see some work created on this machine.
