And my latest project is finally complete! An 8' farm table to replace the one I built 1.5 years ago. The top on that one cupped and bowed as the seasons changed. I was a total rookie woodworker back then ... and now I'm just barely above rookie status ... with much better tools and a few more skills. Of course, as with every project, I'd change a few things. But I'm happy with it overall.
I already miss the beauty of God's creation in Montana ... so He painted this for me as I land in Nashville.
Well, Montana did it again. My heart is full, rested, and refreshed to jump back into normal life. Catching rainbow trout, brown trout, and carp with a fly rod on the Bighorn river definitely doesn't suck. So thankful I could experience my second trip to @refuge_foundation with a group of men working through their faith together.
My newest tool ... a Wen electric hand planer. Surprising how great this little thing works. Especially for only $30. Using it for the project in the glue-up below ... an 8' farm table to replace the one I built 1.5 years ago.
Seriously. Those curls. And lips. And eyes.
First big project with the crosscut sled I built a couple weeks ago. 220 pieces for 44 boxes in 3 sizes. All for a small parts organizer cabinet I'm building. Now on to the long assembly process.
Good grief I love this crazy-hair girl.
Getting a birthday card in the mail from your grandmother the day after she dies is so surreal. I miss you, my wonderful Memaw. Thank you for always being the best grandmother this kid could ask for.
I've always thought of my Memaw each time I get a scoop of her favorite ice cream. But this one is extra special today now that she's gone. Still doesn't feel real that I'll never again hear those familiar words ... "I love you, Sweet Boy." #baskinrobbins
Me: building a router table. God: just showin' off.
