There once was a time when building furniture was how I wanted to earn a living. In fact, according to the diploma resting comfortably in a file somewhere, I am officially allowed to refer to myself as a "Furniture Technician". And indeed, this job as it looks in modern times requires a technical proficiency that I pretty much have zero interest in.
When I started the program I was hoping for the title of "Woodworker" at the end. As in one that works wood with their hands. So that's what I am. And precisely why I am not employed in that field of choice.
I built both pieces pictured above. Although it was about 15 years ago I am still pretty darn excited that I put them together.
These days any wood working I do is on a much smaller scale. Our old farmhouse has at least 5 different styles and types of trim going on - very little of it original and all of it painted. It is my self appointed task to replace the trim as we make our way through each room - after insulating and painting. Throughout the house window and door trim will all eventually be 1x4 pine. Planed, cut and installed by my hand. No paint. No stain.
As untechnical as can be.
Happy Friday folks!
