Christmas or Birthday Gift?

She's claimed it as her Christmas present or birthday gift.
(Still trying to make up her mind.)
Since they fall on the same day, it doesn't matter to me...

The End

Completed - and NICE!  Very nice!
This is "the end" of the coffee table...
Well, not actually.  Still have 4 legs...

Sofa Table 2

Finally!  While driving through a neighboring town
on "Big Trash Day", we found a discarded table.
I salvaged the legs (the top was warped beyond repair)
and attached them to the 1/2 round to make a second "sofa-table".
Watch for how we finish it!
(Compare it to the one made out of the other 1/2 round here.)

Another Wooden Box

Now, THIS could be interesting!
UPDATE:  We sold it for double what we paid for it and moved on to another project.

Console Table

A few weeks ago, we found an oval coffee table.  We didn't need a coffee table, but I liked the legs on it and thought I might be able to use them in remodeling a piece of furniture in the future.  My wife suggested we cut the top in half to make two console tables.  And so our search began for 8 legs to use for the two tables.  The first legs were created from a baby bed that we found tossed out with someone's trash.  (The remains shown below).
I turned the half-round table over and began to figure out a way to attach the legs to its underside.  I also decided to incorporate the original coffee table's apron into the new console table.
Today I finished the assembly and have sanded down the table.  
It is awaiting a decision about what color to paint it!  I'm pretty pleased with the result.

Sweet and Demure

Sweet and demure
are the words my wife uses in describing this table.
It really DID turn out great!

I'm Back!

After several weeks "off" due to quadruple bypass surgery,
I'm back!
Mixed some cream paint with some white and applied a coat to this table.

The Projects are Mounting

 The garage continues to fill up with projects!
I plan to convert this sewing machine cabinet into an "occasional table"...
 and this china cupboard will be repaired 
and probably painted.
(Glass in one of the doors needs to be replaced.)
I've removed the piece on the top of the bottom part
because it was warped.
I replaced it with these boards (below) which should add some character

What a Difference a Day Makes

I spent New Years Day painting the exterior of this doll house.
I used paints I had on hand.
What a difference a day makes!
