My Benches

This is the other piece of wood we found that I've made into a bench.

For some reason, there was a huge cut into the piece. I assumed it was from a chainsaw. I made a nice inlay to fill the gap. I like it.

This is the smallest piece that could also be used as a coffee table.

Pam's Bench

This is a bench that I recently finished for Pam. We went looking for firewood and Pam found this  beautiful piece of wood after digging through piles of logs. So after many hours of sanding and more sanding and  6 coats of Tung Oil, you get a beautiful bench. It's pretty heavy especially with the custom iron legs. I've got two more smaller ones that I am hoping to finish soon.

Pictures June 2012

This is one of my neighbours cat. He/she is sooooo cute.

My raspberry bush is looking good. Lots of berries,  we've had a couple already.

Our double-decker planter is looking good. On the bottom we have brocoli and carrots. 

Carrots. I hear they don't get very big. 

I've never grown brocoli before. It should be interesting.

The hydrangea is starting to bloom.

Straw flowers. I am kinda excited to see these grow. We grabbed some seeds from someones lawn. 
Peace Yo!

Pinky munching on some catnip. Yummy.

I love the Japanese Blood Grass in the late afternoon.

Pam's Cafe!

Lots of Black Eye Susan's.

Rob & Daniela's Planters

Rob and Daniela wanted planters for this trough. It's pretty long, 15 feet. So I built three 5 foot planters.

They wanted the blue insulation which I am starting to see other people use. I  like working with it better than the plastic and it'll definitely protect the plants better for winter if you have perennials.

Tessa's Planters

I built 2 of these 4 feet X 4 feet planteers out of 1 X 6 Cedar deck boards. There's no bottom because their for a  in ground garden. I need to get some up to date photos of what the garden looks like.
