Meanwhile, in the workshop…

I must apologize for the silence here on the blog! When I began this little hideout, I planned to blog at least twice a week. *blush* As you can see, I did pretty well with that until July. This Summer has been crazy! 

Don’t think for a minute that we haven’t been working on projects here and there, though, and some of them are really amazing. My Man has built me the cutest little Hickory table for the entry way… and it’s only a few hours from being completely finished. We’ve also been making jewelry holders (with adorable decorative knobs!!) and Giant Ruler Growth Charts. 

Here’s the photographic evidence of all of our hard (but not completely finished) work… 

The finished gate complete with re-painted hardware. Our neighbor lady was so very happy to see the finished product! :)

We built this pretty gate for our neighbor lady for a fraction of the cost of hiring a carpenter. She is so very happy with the finished product! 🙂 What was that Robert Frost said? “Good fences make good neighbors…” 

The cedar gate, almost finished ... my Man half-lapped all the joints in the 2x4 lumber to keep the gate square and strong for years to come.

My little hickory table! The base is painted cottonwood, reclaimed from a barn. The bottom shelf has been fitted, but not polyurethaned yet (which is why the color looks different).

And, a small sampling from a basement remodel that we did for some friends. Our board and batten door, under their staircase. Jacobean stain, 2 coats of poly.

There you have it, just a few of the very good reasons for my absence. 🙂 🙂 Now that Fall is around the corner, I have a list of things for ME that I want to build … reclaimed lumber pumpkins, Fall signage, maybe a new doorhanger …
