Here in the Miller household we’ve got a list of Spring/Summer projects to work on. One of which we completed today.
In this cottage in with brick floors and pups in a country setting, a nice clean fabric bathmat just isn’t practical. It gets dirty long before it would in a normal house. (Even with hanging it up on the tub after each use.) So, last summer I decided we needed a different kind of mat. Now we have one! YAY! …I’ve yet to try it out, but I’m planning to do that later this evening.
It was good to get back into working on a project together; planing the wood, drilling and screwing things together. Granted, Cam did most of it, but I did help with all aspects, including doing some of the chamfering of edges with a plane:
Cam did his planing at more than twice my speed, of course:
We ended up with a whole nice bunch of splendid wood curlycues!! Fun!:
And the final product looks just great!:
Can’t wait to try it out!
I also got some other things done today, including jobsearching stuff, taking a 20 minute walk, and a bit of decluttering. Rather productive. It was good to talk to Janine on Instant Messenger too. Now it’s time to think about dinner..mmm, schnitzel, no noodles though. I may, or may not, be back later with drawings. Got up pretty early this morning so I’ve a feeling I’m headed to bed early too.
