Woodworking In Progress – Spring 2017

I have been taken to task for putting too many sewing/crocheting posts together in the recent past, so I’m trying to separate them with other posts. It’s a bit difficult to do when you don’t have many progress pictures of your current projects. I’ll give it a shot, though.

Do you remember the wooden conversation heart that Jay made me for Valentine’s Day?

This poor thing has been sitting on my work bench so that it can be finished. I finally managed to get it done!

Didn’t that turn out cute?

The lighting in the evening isn’t that great in the dining room, but you get the idea.

Then there were the hooks that Jay installed on the bottom side of the glassware shelf:

We had accumulated quite a few coffee cups so we decided to start storing them this way.

Currently Jay is working on my birthday present:

I won’t tell you what they are, yet, but hopefully soon you’ll be able to see them finished and in their new home.

Also, we have another project going on that pertains to this area of the yard:

Yikes! What a mess!

As that project progresses I will definitely share pictures with you.

Oh, and then I had to go out and buy this:

I had high hopes for this. It’s a Pooper Scooper for the cats’ litter boxes. You see, I broke their other one and wanted a sturdier model. They aren’t cheap! And I was a bit disappointed in this one after using it for the first time.

But yes, I broke their old one. Do you want to know the tally so far of the things I have broken?

(1) Pointy dirt shovel

(1) garden trowel

(1) snow shovel

(1) burger flipper

(1) Pooper Scooper

Plus I have bent a steel bar like what Jay uses at work to move heavy objects. Was I using it to move a heavy object? No. I was attempting to remove a tree root from the earth. It didn’t help that I was standing on it and jumping up and down. Ha! Wouldn’t you like to see a picture of that! Needless to say, if I buy a tool of some sort it has to be able to withstand being used by me.

Well, Chester is telling me that it’s bedtime and apparently Bob is already there.
