In the continuing vein of building furniture for my older brother, Josiah, I hereby present to you his bed. Solid Alaskan birch, Full XL size, and using no screws or other hardware in assembly.
Josiah wanted a loveseat. Since exactly what he wanted wasn't readily available, Becca and I built this one for him. I actually think it turned out rather well.
Lovely rainbow on the way home a few nights ago. I didn't have the camera set as well as I might have hoped, but these turned out decent enough. Enjoy!
Caught this little guy hopping around the other day. I think I've caught glimpses of him before, but this is the first time I've managed to get a shot off. Enjoy!
Driving home from Anchorage yesterday, Denali was out in all its glory. I had to plough through knee-deep snow to get these shots, but it was worth it.
I was out late last night watching a live performace of The Music Man, staring my twin sisters-in-law as a couple of the townsfolks. When we got out, we were greated with this. Not the greatest shots, I'm affraid. Maybe next time. Oh, and there was a moose too, although no pictures of that one. I love Alaska!
We made the desk a while ago, but now that we know a bit more about finsihing, we decided to re-finish it in Garnet Shellac and semi-gloss poly.
It snowed the other day. The Redpols didn't seem to mind though - they just happily dug fallen seeds out of the snow!
Well, Rebecca and I just completed another woodworking project, this one involving a bit of upholstery - an ottoman. Check it out!
Ah, winter in Alaska. The snow gently covering the ground in a blanket of white, the frost in the air coating the trees in a glittering display of crystals, the ice on the …. windows???? This is what happens when you heat your house with wood heat and keep the curtains closed most of the time. Ooops.
