Riker Table

Hi guys,

If you have been following our Instagram (@tjgwoodworking) and Facebook page you’ve probably seen the ongoing progress of the hall table that has been in the works as the most recent project. We are happy to say that it is now complete and ready for delivery! This may have been one of the more challenging pieces of furniture Tyler has created thus far, but also one of the most unique to TJGwoodworking. A challenge like this came with different obstacles along the way, but overall, it opened up a new set of ideas, inspiration, and technique for future designs to come. We hope the client is just as pleased as we are with the end result.

We wanted to share the photos with you so please check out the image slideshow below and let us know your thoughts on it! Also, don’t forget to visit our new Etsy account. Handmade tree ornaments make lovely Christmas gifts!

Bowls, Boats, and Baby!

Happy Monday everyone!

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and a relaxing weekend that followed. Things here at the shop have been in full swing! From cranking out several new bowls of various elegant forms and figures, to finishing up a uniquely stunning hall table, and preparing for some boat restorations, it is off to a nice winter season. We are also thrilled to announce that the newest member of our family has arrived! Our daughter Julianne was born on November 1st. Maybe we have a future woodworker in the making?

Upcoming Show

Hey guys,

Just wanted to do a quick post. I’ve decided to do a pretty big show at the end of September. The Vermont Fine Furniture, Woodworking and Forest Festival. The show is held in Woodstock, VT and is on the weekend of September 27th and 28th. I will have a 10’x10′ booth setup with all of the bowls that I own, almost 20 new pens that I’ve turned in the past week, and a few pieces of furniture. There will be a lot of work by some very talented VT craftsman, some demos and food for lunch. So, If you’re not doing anything, come check out the show and enjoy the town of Woodstock, which is beautiful that time of year. I will keep you all posted with any new work and updates.

I received many compliments. Below is a picture of the booth. mt snow craft showJust a heads up, I will be doing another show next weekend, September 28th and 29th, in Woodstock, VT.

Turning a bowl from start to finish

Hey folks,

I’m finally getting around to doing another post. I decided to make a video so you all could see the process I use to make a bowl from start to finish. I sped the video up 8x to make it roughly 6 minutes long.

On another note, I finished up and delivered another floating top hall table last week, turned out good. Now I’ll be cranking out products for the upcoming show at Mt. Snow in West Dover, VT. It is the Wine and Harvest Festival on the 21st and 22nd of September. If you’re in the area, come check it out, lots of great wine and crafters! Hope to see you there.

Jeffersonville Art Show

Hey folks,

I participated in the Jeffersonville, VT art festival today. What a great show with a lot of very talented artist. It was nice meeting new people and what a beautiful day too. Here’s a quick pic of the booth

On a sad note, my grandfather passed away today. He contributed a ton to my life and the beginnings of my woodworking adventures. He built 15 Adirondack guideboats in his lifetime and numerous pieces of furniture. I feel lucky to own one of his boats and will cherish it for many years to come. I hope to someday build as many boats as he has done.
