New Backsplash
Ripped gross old tile backsplash / Routed out groove for extending electric line to an extra receptacle / Assembled some old barwood; planed, sanded, stained, and sealed it / Installed, still need GFI and cover



Supports are all fine-sanded aspen, shelves are hand cut lodgepole pine I rescued from the dump and planed and sanded until they looked and felt really nice. Coated with Tung Oil.

2 Stools
Lefty is completely fashioned of barnwood, while righty has lodgepole pine for a seat, aspen for legs, and diamond willow for a back rest.

Wall Lamp
Bottom shelf is barnwood, rest of lamp is diamond willow. Obviously I either need to do some trimming or get a smaller or large lampshade.

Dad's Desk, March 19
Basically done except for some more urethane on the desktop. I added a keyboard drawer and shelf/letter-rack system to support Dad's answering machine and printer.

Dad's Desk, March 18
Well it's starting to look like a desk now, so that's a plus. Since I don't ever "plan" any of my work, it can occasionally take me a while to get it just right. The cabinet/shelf on the right hand side looks simple but it took forever to figure out and execute. Anyways, I really think everything is coming along well, and I'm especially happy with the secret (not anymore) hidden compartment on the upper right.


Dad's Desk, March 17
It's coming along, but beginning to make a mess of the formerly spotless garage.
I still need to build a shelf system on the right-hand side, do some more sanding,
and stain everything that isn't going to be left aged.

Very Much in Progress

Small Sunset Frame
Barnwood frame with plexiglass (that white line is just the sunglare)

The Barn Bar, In Progress
So far just the skeleton is mostly complete, it should
look completely different (if all things go as planned
[planned=made up as I go along]) when it is done. You can also see
some of the wiring advancements made in the barn during the fall....
yes, that is a chandelier. In the BARN.
