In my spare time....or at least in the time I should have been doing something else, which is what most of my spare time really is.
So I've been working pretty hard on getting my yard cleaned up these past couple of weeks. Raked, trimmed, overgrown bushes hacked back. Trash from both our demo and from crap left behind by the previous owners. I still have a ways to go, but at the same time I've been making pretty good progress.
And the area I like to do my woodworking projects in the back yard was cleaned up this weekend. My make shift work table, 2 kitchen cabinets (pressboard) that were removed from the kitchen with a piece of particle board stretched over them, was not holding up particularly well. So I decided to head on over to skeehans (my first post hibernation trip) to buy a few 2x4's and whip something together.
First, finally a chance to try out my new Christmas present. And I put it to good use.
and a little while later, 2 sets of legs and aprons cut. And then, what to do for the top? More Wood? hmmmm, why not just use that one piece of left over countertop that was salvaged from the kitchen demo. Better on top of those legs than leaning against my refrigerator...where it has lived for the last 6 months.
So nothing fancy or pretty or helpful to the interior of the house itself. But definitely useful as I get back to work on my reno projects (finish the craft room, work on the kitchen.)
