Finished Projects Monday

I can't believe it 2 posts in one week. I usually can't even get one post a month anymore. This is a completed project from when I was in Texas with my brother. I saw this on a few different blogs but couldn't seem to find one to buy so the next best thing is make your own version. In this case......ask your wonderful wood worker brother to make one. He was all into showing me how to use the power tools though so it was a collaborative effort with most of the work being done by him. I did learn a few things about using old barn wood though. Thanks Ron.

It looks bigger in the picture than it is. But it's in a smaller room and I couldn't get a good angle.

Another project done. I want to get at least one a day done while the girls are away.

Project #2
Use up a zucchini before it's too late. Yep I picked them and had a hankerin for some Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. From this.......
to this.............
Wish you had smell a post........sounds kinda weird!!!!!!LOL but really I am sitting here smelling it as I type. I'll probably have to cut it before bed though. It smell divine. It's a little darker than I like but it'll be crusty this way. It's great toasted for breakfast too. I will be making more tomorrow. Just got home from working a 12 hour day so 1 batch is enough for today. Anyone want to come over for tea and bread??????

Enjoy your day.
