A fun new full size pattern in the workshop today to help you get an early start to next year’s North Pole decorations, a super big 8x8ft workshop for Santa Claus. Sized to match some of our other recently added projects like Mr and Mrs Claus. Custom sizing will be available. As well as smaller versions of this project will be in stock ready for shipping.

What is worse than a bearing breaking on a flush trim router bit? Having that broken bit travel into the project panel and gouging a hole that is not suppose to be there. This little video talks about that incident and a solution for fixing it, so that we can continue with building this race car bed.
There are probably several simple ways to draw arches in the workshop. For this children’s bed that I am building, I used what I had near me to get the task done quickly.
