“no edits” cut of me taking advantage of a lovely spring day to do some woodworking on my outdoor bench with my #festooldomino to assemble some table legs. And yes, I did do one cut slightly off. I find the Domino XL a little heavy sometimes, so I actually use my body (my hip) to drive the machine vs my arms (tendonitis) The video shows the layout, the mortising, and the fitting of the work. On the base legs, I drove the dominos “clear through” so that you could see the incredibly tight fit of a domino. Plus this way I can wedge at the feet. And glued up with Old Brown Glue and my ersatz glue pot :) If you’re in Niagara Falls, Waterloo or Toronto: check out my seminars over the next two weeks at #leevalley Seminar list on the @leevalleytools website
I should add “professional couch surfer” to the list of attributes I have♀️doing lots of this today! Resting and recharging is part of a healthy lifestyle. Buttt I can’t stop thinking about work! Anyone else struggles to enjoy it and not feel guilty about it?!♀️♀️
I have sooo much sourcing to do but everything is closed tomorrow. Can’t wait to get back to it on Tuesday. Happy long weekend everyone!

Going crazy over this dusty rose colour in spaces. I’ll be sharing some of my favourite applications of this colour throughout the week! Top on my list is this colour used on brick! Who else is seeing the world through rose coloured glasses?

This folks is what I would call Kitchen Heaven! A bright and airy space, and the breakfast table is just far enough away that you won't be able to see your kids throwing food at each other. Perfection by @moment.design
Stain that morning, enjoy your deck the same evening!Want a stain that is more than just a stain? How about a water-proofer that absorbs deeply into your wood, protecting not only the surface but the integrity of the wood, too?
C2 Guard resists water penetration, helping to prevent the wood from cracking, splitting and warping, while at the same time reducing the effects of mold and mildew. Get more life from your deck, don't just stain it, protect it.

ProTipTuesday: If you have an older home with some outdated yellow/orange hardwood that's also a bit out of shape, you can definitely fix it up! Sanding & staining can yield amazing results without having to rip up your floors (and it's a more affordable solution!)
Keep in mind that oil based stains will bring out the yellow undertones of the original wood whereas water based stains will bring out the white undertones to give a more neutral look. You can also select glossy to matte finishes, up to you!
I love how this original red oak turned out with a grey/brown water based stain #transformationtuesday
