Ran into this proud lady today...

Chatted for a bit but she had to run suddenly when her Uber showed up early. Still it was nice to see things from her perspective if only for a short while.

 A quick unexpected trip to TC.

Salvaged Door #woodworking

 This 4th of July, I turned this salvaged door into a beautiful portal from the shop into the Kitchen.  Cost of door $0 , hardware $30.00, sweat equity???

Results... Priceless.

 In the woodshop this weekend making a faux "barrel" for wedding cards for the upcoming family Wedding.

Since it is at a winery, wine themed decorations seem are called for and we found something similar on-line. I just did what I do and viola!

One wine barrel wedding card receptacle.

#woodworking Murphy Bed

The Murphy bed project is finally coming together. Its not like I had a lot of other things going on or anything but we needed another bed in the small bedroom and this seemed to do the trick. I was going to buy one but building one seamed much more fulfilling. Honestly, it was. More photos later when it is all finished.

It is going to be a busy week, I have a lot to do before the end of the year.

More #woodworking projects

 Lately I have found some time to get into the wood shop.
The new CNC machine has proven to be ALOT of fun.

My new currency is time. I wish I had more of it and every bit of it I have is precious.

Here you see some recent projects.

Snowflake ornament. Fancy small box. Blocks set for Freddie.

Very fun indeed.

Shop time- Small table project

 The small table project turned out pretty nice.
I love the way the maple and the walnut look together.
 All the natural imperfections.

I really like this project.

Shop Time

Another fleeting weekend, but again we find time for the shop.

While Pop works on some small projects I have a table project ( in Walnut and Maple) shaping up in the background. 

Its always good to get some time in working on some projects.... it soothes the soul. 

And this just happened
