Sunday Winter nights are meant to be spent with the family! Cozy next to the fire and sipping your favorite drink. Of course, adding to the ambience is a table made by Memphis and Blue! Get yours today, after all it’s all about that quality family time! Thank you @illdyls and @jessrogers11 for creating this masterpiece.
A defining characteristic of a good craftsman is knowing how to fix your mistakes. I’m working on a large dining table that’s going to receive breadboard ends, which means I can secure the ends to the base without having to worry about the movement of the top. Even after doing this plenty of times, clearly marking the top of the apron, setting the appropriate depth, I heard a “crunch” as the drill press continued it’s plunge through the top side. Guess it was hungry! This will never be seen, nor will it affect anything, thankfully.
Mindful strokes! You guys seemed to get a lot out of my last vid where I showed the breakdown of strokes / how often I stop and start with strokes by changing colours - so here's another 😊
This may be a technique that could help you become more mindful with your lettering - but it's not necessary to change colours! Just go slow and remember to break down your strokes.
If you need help figuring out where to break down strokes, you can find miniscule alphabet worksheets for immediate download in my shop (www.blackchalkco.shop) as well as a short course on Skillshare 😊 there's a link in my bio that'll take you there.
I feel a bit rusty today! Had a few wonky upstrokes - believe me when I say that neeeever leaves you 😂 so don't be discouraged if it happens to you! Practise helps, and I need to be doing more of that!

Nap time means I can get to work 💪🏻 this is how long it takes me to complete each color section using the punch needle. (The snoring in the background is courtesy of my Boston Terrier)
I find that it’s easier to keep my wrist steady against the canvas, as if I was holding a pen. That way you have more control over each punch.
If you’re looking for the blue Ultra Punch needles, I have 40 available in my shop. Link in bio 👆🏻
