tall boys, babes and boards

Had fun on Saturday with these two lovely ladies, Heather, Anna and a couple tall boys. Heather sure is handy and crafty! She has made some lovely wood items like outdoor seating areas, tables with succulents, shelves, wall hangings and other AWEsome household items.

Today with Heather’s help I created some canvases and Anna created some shelves and a box for her cats. Here is Anna using the chop saw. She jumped right in and was quickly at home.

I was a bit more timid. Heather patiently taught me how to use the table saw to cut down some long fence board that she had recently scored. Here I am using the table saw.

I had wanted to create some wood canvases. So, I took the pieces and fit them together to create the canvases below.

I flipped the pieces over held them together with some brackets. I got to use an electric screwdriver.

Sanded them down with a  hand sander and voila, some nice canvases for painting, mod podging, etc.

Pretty happy to have such lovely canvases to play on in the next couple weeks.
