Rainy weekend

It rained on and off all weekend, so I never made it to the beach for tiny rocks. I puttered around with odds and ends in my studio instead.

I'm not sure what kind of wood I used but it was a pleasure to work with and I love the color.  It's a scrap from one of my brothers-in-law.  I milled some mini lumber from it on my table saw, then built some freestanding steps for the contest house.

Update...I took a piece of the wood to the office with me this morning, as a couple of my coworkers also enjoy woodworking. The consensus is that it's either redwood or cedar.


trailer done, landscaping started

The trailer is finished, it is being inspected today.

Husband cut a piece of wood for the base.  I put feet on, then coated it with some horrid water based stain I can't use for anything nice.  Now it's play time. :D

It didn't take long to discover that I have to go to the beach today to sift more rocks out of the sand.  Heartbreaking, isn't it?  Don't you feel sorry for me?  ;)

Notice the cement blocks?  They are the reason I built the trailer.  Not because I wanted a tiny house, but because I bought these super cool cement blocks a while ago, then couldn't figure out what to do with them.

Now...where's my bikini?  The sun is coming out.
