Wood Projects June 2020

Hey everyone! Hopefully you didn’t melt during those few weeks of extreme heat. I don’t think our AC shut off for 2 weeks straight. It just could not get the temp in the house to less than 80 no matter how hard it tried.

Beginning during my staycation and ending the very first few days of July, I completed not one but two wood projects before it became too hot to hang out in the garage.

The first was a Father’s Day present for my dad. He hunts and he requested that I make him a gun rack a few weeks before. I thought he was just kidding but decided to do it anyway. Turns out he wasn’t and he had full confidence that I could do it. That was not something I shared in during the process. There was a hell of a lot of swearing involved but in the end, I like how it turned out.

I probably looked like a bit of a psycho to my neighbors walking around my driveway and garage with my husband’s shotgun under my arm. :3

The second was just a little pallet wood project I decided to fiddle around with. One of those projects where I didn’t particularly care if I screwed up because I had plenty of back up material. I kept the first results since they didn’t turn out too shabby. Mr. C&M hung them in his office and they’re now used to display some sweet candle holders my aunt and uncle gave me years ago.

What do you think?
