Now that I'm at the age where I have to watch my cholesterol I remove and render all the fat from meat for confit treats later on. This is the fat after butchering 20 chicken thighs... It's like a bar of soap! #chicken #chickenfat #chickenfatisdelicious #rendering #cholesterol #butchering

Finished my hatchet! I had intended to use some more of that termite-oak but it literally exploded when boring the hole. So I used barn cedar with a gorgeous and sappy knot. I did the cuts cut the miters for the shaft angle messed that up a few times until the knot exploded and I was running out of wood! I had to reverse the cedar connections giving that lovely tricolour put some scrap walnut at the top and piece together the knot with epoxy. Lots of happy accidents because I love the look…

Finished the reclaimed-o-matic table with some besswax. Legs are from the bottom of a roulette table I turned into a coffee table and the top piece is reclaimed plywood. #table #reclaimed #repurposed #diy #woodworking #furniture #diyfurniture #beeswax

Refinished a couple planes: one is a vintage Stanley No. 220 from the flea market and the other is MADE IN USA and I found it in the alley. The Stanley work great for trimming and the other has a huge mouth so it will become a decent scrub plane. #vintage #vintagetools #handplane #stanleytools #tools #refinish #sharpening #fleamarket #fleamarketfinds #diy

Version two of the Mom-inspired soap dish: fallen spruce (?) from Halfmoon Bay bamboo skewers and some rocks; vacuum-infused and finished with polyurethane. Featuring the log it came from and one of the mini liquorice soaps I make for the kitchen. #soap #soapdish #wood #woodworking #diy #halfmoonbay #mom #miniature
