After all of my Christmas creations, I tackled my gift for my husband. He has always wanted a record player, so after a lot of searching I found the perfect old phonograph cabinet. It was a GE Phonograph/Radio Combination cabinet from either 1947 or 1948. Besides needing a shower and some makeup, she also needed… Continue reading You spin me right round
During the last few weeks, I’ve become inspired to try some Christmas Pinterest projects before moving onto my husband’s closet built-ins. Some of the photos are at the bottom of the blog. However, I wanted to create a mini-tutorial on how to build The North Pole because I think everyone should have one!! I started… Continue reading The North Pole
After our summer of camping and getting back into our back-to-school routines, I have been hitting the workshop quite a bit. I am finally tackling my husband’s closet…I told him for his Christmas present (in 2017) that I would build him built-ins. Needless to say, it has been a slow process. But when the closet… Continue reading How Many is Too Many??
One of my best friends is getting married and she was looking for a card box. I volunteered to make one since I am currently banned from projects requiring money…i.e. all projects!

A few months ago, I took on making a gaming table for a friend. The dimensions for the table were based upon the ideal space each player would have for his or her gaming pieces. The table needed to be a hexagon where 2a = 60″ (or a = 30″)! That is a big table! So… Continue reading A Table to Remember
Now don’t get me wrong, I love this table. But I do NOT like going out in my cold garage. I also do not LOVE the finishing process. But I did it. I turned on my heater for 4 days straight and during nap time or after baby bedtime, I applied layer upon layer of… Continue reading Thankful to be done
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I am making an extra large table. This table is a board gaming table for a friend and will have a center hexagon covered in red gaming-suede which sits within another wood hexagon trimmed with 3.5” oak and stained using my goto GF Java Gel Stain (see… Continue reading All about that Base
