Progress Report

Here's a glimpse of some of our projects in progress!  First, we're working on a dining room table.  Grant built the whole base and we've oxidized it to create the stain.  We've been stalled on the tabletop because the boards we originally bought were too warped to use.  We've purchased some new boards that will hopefully fit better, so now we just need to finish the tabletop and then seal everything.  We're also staining some ikea chairs to match.  Then, later we'll build a bench and get some upholstered chairs for the ends of the table.

In order to get an idea of how everything will look, I've been learning some new photoshop skills.  We're still undecided on the upholstered end chairs, but I've put the table, Ikea chairs, and the bench into a (rough) projection photo for the dining room.  Yay!

And we've also got this little surprise cooking!  Can't wait to get it done and post about it.


  1. Looks AWESOME! I'm so impressed by your carpentry and photoshop skills!

    1. Thanks! Luckily we haven't lost any fingers (yet). Will loves carrying around all the tools too-- at least the ones we allow him to.
