Wooden tote...

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all having a great week.  I was able to spend the evening out in the shop building.  I have several orders I need fill so it was great getting being out there.  I wanted to let you know that Dad's follow-up appointment yesterday went well.  They did the ECHO and an EKG and both came back normal.  The doctors decided to hold off on the Abdominal Aortic Aneurism repair for 6 weeks instead of 4 weeks.  They just want to give Dad plenty of time to heal so he'll be in better shape for the next surgery.

Now onto a project I made for the craft fair.  I started out with a stack of wood that I cut down to the sizes I wanted.  I had double the pieces because I was making two of them.
I forgot to take pictures of the building.  I got into the building groove and forgot to stop and pick up the camera.  Bad blogger!
This is what I ended up with from that stack of wood.

Once I sanded them down I painted a base coat of black and a top coat of white and then sanded it to give it a well used appearance.
And here is one of them at the craft fair.  Neither one of them sold but I can always put them to use.  They are great for holding all sorts of things including paint and tools.  Thanks for stopping by.

  3. They look great, and I think you did an amazing job with the Craft Fair, in the post below. It must be very rewarding to sell your homemade pieces.
    Glad to hear that your father is doing a bit better.
