One last post for 2017! Some pages of my favorite builds of this year in no specific order. Although the last page was the biggest surprise that changed mine and my wife's lives and I couldn't be more proud of them or my wife! Thank you to everyone who has supported me and Happy New Year everyone we'll see you in 2018! #woodworking #woodturning #gemelowoodworks #favoritebuilds #goodbye2017 #hello2018 #happynewyear

Needed to make a perfectly round pair of walnut balls! 😉 a hole saw on a drill while the lathe is turning! The idea was scary but it was extremely smooth! Baoding balls for a gift! #woodworking #woodturning #woodlathe #walnut #balls #nogal #nuezes #madera #tornodemadera #baodingballs #stressreliever #relaxation #meditation #gemelowoodworks

Pulled a couple beech wood slabs from inventory finally stabilizing at 12% moisture! If you are local to Plymouth you know the famous beech trees that stood in front of the Lincoln Jr. High School for YEARS! Generously I got a few logs and I had them milled last yr. These will be the first 2 projects from those famous trees and they will be for sale! So keep an eye out in the weeks to come! If you have a suggestion for them please share!!!🙂 #woodworking #beechwood #slabs #liveedge #treeswithhistory #plymouthindiana #lincolnjrhighschool #ljhs #milled #supportlocal #gemelowoodworks

A couple days ago @midcenturypicking posted some sweet chairs he found at an awesome deal! You should check them out on their page!! Asked to share any good deals anyone else picked up! Well this is mine. A Lane 'acclaim' sweetheart cedar chest. In really good condition for $50 on Craigslist! I was blown away when I picked it up and all the original tags were still stapled in their original positions! Including the key! A really cool ad booklet too! A small blemish on the right side (top) is the only thing wrong with it! P.s. The stocking ladder on the right is the small project I was working on late at night a couple days ago as well! #woodworking #furniture #midcentury #midcenturymodern #craigslistfind #lanefurniture #cedar #cedarchest #acclaimline #cool #awesome #sweetheartchest #retro #wood #christmas #stockings #stockingladder #simple #whitewood #latenightproject #gemelowoodworks @thenightskyio

As our twin boys #arloandotto approach 6mo it is crazy to think how quick time flies! It feels like they were this size just yesterday! This time or lack there of really makes you think about reasons behind the things we do/who we do them for. These 2 little boys and my wife are a HUGE force behind what I do any more. I think about how hard it was, on my wife @laurenarosas , to bring them into the world! Yes we do things we love because it's fun but being a parent changes your mind set! It pushes you to be better at what you do, make,think,say, all things! Basically it feels like time is shorter than it used to pre-parenthood and I try to be a better human being because of them! I've never told anyone this but when I was making this bowl before they were born I knew Arlo and Otto would have pictures by our friend kayla ( @weepingwillowphotography ) , I knew our unborn boys would be taking pictures in the bowl and I actually shed a tear or two making it! The emotions my family brings out is crazy and I'm sure it's the same for all of us! So be good, be proud, be better every day and enjoy life. You never know when it's our last! #woodworking #parenting #parenthood #reflections #life #twinboys #makelifecount #cherryburl #powercarving #lanecelot @kingarthurstools #wood #woodenbowl #lovemyfamily #onelightonedark #twinboys #photography #newborn #newbornphotography #gemelowoodworks

Out of all you the projects that come up, industrial stuff is definitely my favorite to work. I love incorporating metal with wood! This piece will consist of true 1"x oak barn wood, reclaimed angle iron from the scrap pile I leave outside to have a natural weathered feel to it and epoxy! #wood #woodworking #steelandmetal #industrial #industrialdesign #rustic #rusticdecor #barnwood #reclaimedwood #epoxy #modern #plymouthindiana #gemelowoodworks

Getting this chunk of ash sectioned out for a turning blank with the grizzly! The edges won't go to waste they will be wooden spoons, spatulas and why not .Got a request to make a vintage Christmas tree topper! #woodworking #woodturning #turningblank #ash #christmas #treetopper #handmade #woodmilling #grizzlytools #bandsaw #wood #woodgrain #plymouthindiana #gemelowoodworks

'tis the season....well almost! I hadn't turned anything in a LONG time and man did it feel good to be in front of a lathe again! Just a small piece but this yr my wife wants wooden "vintage" look ornaments! I said umm YEAH!!

Little side project using scraps from previous projects. You never know how they will be used but it's gratifying once you have a finished product from them!Spalted live edge mulberry and stained sassafras.🙂 #woodworking #woodenbox #liveedge #sassafras #spalted #mulberrywood #scrapwood #project #beautiful #woodgrain #satisfying #plymouthindiana #gemelowoodworks

Post 3 of 4: Continuation on the axe/hatchet restoration. Hand shaping the walnut handle (that sound 😍) and the head is taking a much needed bath in some vinegar to get the rust scale off! #woodworking #restoration #axe #hatchet #rustremoval #walnut #handshaping #woodrasp #sloyd #handtools #plymouthindiana #gemelowoodworks

Having too much work isn't necessarily a bad thing but wasted time else where, like clean up, is something you combat to get jobs done! So this couldn't have come at a better time! Thanks to my dad @aorosas50 for this birthday gift and thanks to my customers for giving me this "problem" I can't thank you all enough for your business!! #woodworking #woodworker #problems #dowork #dustcollector #productivity #problemsolved #smallbusiness #growing #ihaveawesomecustomers #madeinplymouthindiana #gemelowoodworks
