Not exactly a pot of Gold...but definitely of high value for this fella! ...

From the Pearman forest: once a boundless Oak. Now a bountiful table.

While building this, I also learned that just 10 minutes up the road from me there is a nature preserve, that once was a family farm, in which this tree came from. I may be a nerd to my own interests, but it was such a good experience walking through the nature trail, looking up 60’ before the first limb (in some cases) and knowing that this table once stood among those life giving giants.

Maybe I’m just getting older, but man, I really appreciated the connection from start to finish on this build. @arpearman89 @jaradpearman #buildwithastory #woodwork #oak #diningtable #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter

This has absolutely nothing to do with woodwork, but it is a piece unique artwork that I’m proud of. Haven drew a logo for a contest @ksbarandgrille (a place that I have built multiple items for). Her drawing was so dang cute that I decided it had to be commemorated! So I sent the picture to my friend, Melissa, and asked her to make me my own game day T-shirt with Haven’s drawing! Couldn’t be happier with the result! ...

All right Robert (@inventor_of_the_restorer ) it turns out you’re right...there is a better way. 37 second expedited, 10 minutes in real life! Thank you, dude, for making a great machine! #woodshop #sandingstillsucks #satisfying #woodwork #repurposedwood #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

Y’all know how much I love a good repurposed story. These are sections of the old Larue County basketball court. It was replaced last year. My acquisition of these sections is to give them a new home as panels in the circulation desk for the middle school library. So far...that maple cleans up nicely! #repurpose #buildwithastory #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

I’m not often a proponent for mixing species of wood, especially on a table top. However, there is a caveat. When the wood is all over 100 years old and it’s reclaimed from a Jim Beam Rickhouse, I’m incline to make an exception. #reclaimed #jimbeam #woodtop #rustichomedecor #rustictable #woodshop #craftsmanship #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

Walnut vanity assembly. This is just face frame, side panels, and main, center shelf. I’ll be adding a skirt and 4” legs tomorrow. And door, doors will find their way on this week. #woodshop #build #walnut #vanity #craftsmanship #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

Kentucky and Larue County wall hangs are officially installed! Larue inlay of cherry in the geographical location in Ky. Penny inlay on Larue County for the geographical location of Hodgenville. A penny, because Hodgenville is the birthplace of Abe Lincoln! #woodwork #kentucky #lincoln #wallart #woodisart #craftsmanship #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

As a general rule, for myself and most woodworkers, I do not mix wood species on a project. These boards all come from a Jim Beam Rickhouse that was built in the 1930’s, thus suggesting this wood is in the ball park of 200 years old. In lieu of that detail, I shall waive my aforementioned rule, and build a table of random species, with the commonality of being sourced from the same, historical, location.

Have I mentioned that I love building with a good story? #build #woodwork #woodshop #reclaimedwood #buildastory #clarkmanship #cradtsmanship #jesuswasacarpenter

This walnut and cherry was sitting in an old barn and getting destroyed by termites. The customer asked if I could salvage any of it and make them something unique out of the wood. Well, walnut never disappoints...it always cleans up nicely #walnut #cnc #flushcutsaw #kentucky #woodwork #woodshop #buffalocheck #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

Perhaps my favorite way to capture 2 projects in one picture! Plus, Wolverine makes the shot! #woodshop #reclaimedwood #mirrordoor #craftsmanship #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

This little clamp jig comes in handy and saves a ton of floor space! Especially on a 6’ x 6’ panel! #woodshop #woodwork #sawlines #clamping #woodworker #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter ...

I’ve been fortunate enough to have access to a lot of old Jim Beam RICKHOUSE boards. For about 3 years I’ve randomly stumbled into supply of these boards. I love that these boards were once throw aways, (literally stacked in piles all over Jim Beam’s grounds) and now can be used as the rails and stiles of this unique sliding door!

If you haven’t figured out by now, my favorite part of the build is the story it can tell! #woodwork #woodshop #herringbone #reclaimedwood #craftsmanship #clarkmanship #jesuswasacarpenter
