A friend bought wood and veneer from a guy that was moving to the West Coast. I bought all the veneer from him. Great stuff but my current storage system is now overflowing.  How do you store 5000 sq feet of assorted shapes of veneer? #hellerandheller #veneer #workshopstorage #artisanstudiotour
We are all set up at the Fall Festival Art Show in Waynesboro today and tomorrow. Come and say hello! #hellerandheller #madeincville #cvillemade #artisanstudiotour
Chessboards! Most are quite blingy. Beautiful woods and mother of pearl always improve my chess playing.  We are at the Waynesboro Fall Foliage Art Show downtown, 10-5 tomorrow and 12-5 on Sunday.  #hellerandheller #artisanstudiotour #fallfoliageartshow #madeincville #cvillemade #acvartisan #acv
Another box, available at AOFTA in Williamsburg this weekend. Marquetry top, curly maple case and interior, gray suede lining.  #hellerandheller #aofta #artisanstudiotour #madeincville #marquetrybox
Who doesn’t like a nice box? This is my favorite, my daughter’s wedding box. Thank you Andrew Crawford @smartboxmaker for the books that taught me to make this box which is not for sale. There will several different styles of box available at #anoccasionforthearts this weekend. #aofta #madeincville #hellerandheller #artisanstudiotour #fineboxes
AOFTA in Williamsburg this weekend. From my Art Deco period. This Birdseye maple is crazy. The walnut burl is pretty nice too.  #aofta #anoccasionforthearts #hellerandheller #artisanstudiotour #madeincville
New in Williamsburg this weekend. Whorls, an Art Nouveau inspired motif. I love how the different color combinations emphasize different aspects of the design.  #hellerandheller #finewoodworking #cvillemade #madeincville #artisanstudiotour #acvartisan #woodworking #handcraft #sapfm #finefurniture #makersgonnamake #asfm #furnituremaker #customfurniture #woodworkersofinstagram #vaartisantrails #anoccasionforthearts #aofta
Finishing many items this week for our first big show of the Fall: An Occasion for the Arts #aofta #anoccasionforthearts in Williamsburg October 5/6. It’s a great show and we hope to see you there.  This is a set of marquetry acanthus leaves.  #hellerandheller #finewoodworking #cvillemade #madeincville #artisanstudiotour #acvartisan #woodworking #handcraft #sapfm #finefurniture #makersgonnamake #asfm #furnituremaker #customfurniture #woodworkersofinstagram #vaartisantrails #marquetry
Throwback Thursday (almost). My daughter was given a solid mahogany dining room table that someone had sanded an eighth inch deep by 4 inch wide circle in, no doubt to remove a water ring in the finish. I made this Art Nouveau inlay to fill the hole. From Grasset , 1905.  #hellerandheller #finewoodworking #cvillemade #madeincville #artisanstudiotour #acvartisan #woodworking #handcraft #sapfm #finefurniture #makersgonnamake #asfm #furnituremaker #customfurniture #woodworkersofinstagram #vaartisantrails

A fancier version of the previous jewelry box. Kwila solids, art nouveau marquetry lid, @brussohardware hinges.

The first of this year’s jewelry boxes. Curly maple with pommele sapele lid. Outside is complete, now onto the inside. #hellerandheller #finewoodworking #cvillemade #madeincville #artisanstudiotour #acvartisan #woodworking #handcraft #sapfm #finefurniture #makersgonnamake #asfm #furnituremaker #customfurniture #woodworkersofinstagram #vaartisantrails
Not how I prefer to spend an afternoon. I had a disagreement with a board that kicked out the back of the planer. Three stitches and I’ll be fine in a couple of days. The folks at @uva primary care riverside (up 29) were quick helpful and efficient and I recommend them to anyone in Charlottesville that needs prompt medical attention.
Prepping for the Fall Craft Shows. I’ve made several new Serving Board patterns as well as the regulars. Some great wood really makes these boards pop. Cherry, maple and walnut. #hellerandheller #finewoodworking #cvillemade #madeincville #artisanstudiotour #acvartisan #woodworking #handcraft #sapfm #finefurniture #makersgonnamake #asfm #furnituremaker #customfurniture #woodworkersofinstagram #vaartisantrails #inprogress #underconstruction #workinprogress #toolsofthetrade #woodshop #woodshoplife
Quartersawn white oak. It was very sad that our giant tree died but it has left a memorial. 400 bd ft of wide as boards with spectacular flake. Many thanks to Dave Archer and Vince Tullo who helped me stack it. Jim Hart did a beautiful job cutting the tree into boards and @cpjohnson0 told me how to stack it. The pile is almost as tall as me. Now I just have to wait two years for it to dry! #inprogress #underconstruction #workinprogress #toolsofthetrade #woodshop #woodshoplife
My Dad hated the smell of paint. I was his wallpapering assistant as a kid. As an adult I wallpapered our first few houses. Then it went out of fashion. Now it’s back- this our upcoming Grandchild’s nursery. A really cool mural from @rebelwalls . Just a different pattern from my normal work. #inprogress #underconstruction #workinprogress #toolsofthetrade #woodshop #woodshoplife
Vitrivian man.  Our beautiful white oak died. 44” in diameter at chest height. Cox’s Tree Service hauled the whole tree over my shop in many pieces.  Jim Hart will slice up the log butt two weeks from now and I will then have many wide quartersawn white oak boards once they’ve dried. #inprogress #underconstruction #workinprogress #toolsofthetrade #woodshop #woodshoplife
