Latest Project

I am in the process of building my first paid job! Here it is as of last night... I am going to shorten the back by 4 inches and then stain it.... Now to figure out how to make a career of building things like this.... Bench_10-16-05 004 Bench_10-16-05 002

It's looking great. I use to do craft fairs and there was a man that sold a bunch of hand crafted benches and chairs. You could really do something like that.

I think both you and storm could make money building and decorating! Just a thought!

It is looking great so far! I can't wait to see more pics of your progression with it!

Would it be wrong of me to ask how much you are getting for it? I remember the poll from way back when, asking what we would pay for something like that... (or was it for a chair? I can't remember all the fine print... haha)

I did this one for a friend for $100. Probably should have been higher, this has actually been harder than if I had just painted it.... Since i am staining it I have been real careful on my wood selection and sanding it down just right.

Hi there!

Thought I'd come by and say hey since you're renting my blog. I've added you to my blogroll and I hope you get some traffic from me!
