I was in New Orleans this past week and had the privilege of visiting the National World War II Museum, where this metalworking lathe was on display. It was used by women factory workers to manufacture small parts for army vehicles. . . . . . #antiquetools #metalworking #nola #ww2history

Working on product photos and blog post content today. Anyone else turn their house into a makeshift studio when it comes time to take product shots? . . . . . #shoplife #productphotography #plantpress #flowerpress #botanical #botanicalart #maker #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #avlart

Took a left turn, found something pretty beautiful. Anyone else taking some weird risks in the shop today? . . . . . . #botanicalart #art #maker #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #flowers

At some point there won’t be a handle and I’ll have carved a very, very small bowl. . . . . . . #spooncarving #woodworking #woodworkingwoman #knolling

New router table! I thought about building another one in the new shop but I really need it for my next few projects & decided to save time by purchasing this @boschtoolsna model. I’m super impressed by how solid it is and how well thought-out all of the accessories are. Sometimes companies try to up sell you on things like face plates or feather boards or dust ports- not this one. I do need to build a base for it though; what do you prefer in your router table bases other than storage? Spot for a shopvac? . . . . . . #woodworking #woodshop #woodworkingwoman #routertable #maker #makersgonnamake #makersmovement

You would have thought that I’d invest in some better risers by now... anyone else grab whatever’s handy to prop up a workpiece when its time to apply finish? . . . . . . #woodworking #woodwork #woodshop #woodworkingwoman #maker #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #ashevilleartist

Prototyping continues with this leather and wood plant press. I’m really enjoying learning some basic leatherworking and enjoy the complimenting shades of brown better than the black leather from a few days ago. What do you think? . . . . . . #woodworking #woodwork #woodworkingwoman #plantpress #flowerpressing #maker #makersgonnamake #makersmovement

Light box from afar, and plant press in light box up close. The box isn’t much to look at, but it certainly works. And it’s easy to move and store easily. . . . . . . . #woodworker #woodworkingwoman #diy #lightbox #photography #plantpress #plantpressing #flowerpressing #flowerpress
