November was another busy month, filled with mostly frivolous details and small projects. I finally finished the writing desk, a fairly simple table with two drawers and a pencil tray inside.
Another small project was cleaning up, re-building, and painting a small wall cupboard found in the barn. It was in pretty sad shape with parts missing, the door joints loose, and no panel. Also very dirty and full of sticky glop.
I carefully disassembled it, cleaned the hardware, made a new top, bottom and back, painted it and added glass to the door. It turned out pretty well.
Back to real work in the shop, I started a seven drawer chest, to be done next month.
Weather-wise, it was cold, with first ice on the pond up the road, but no snow yet. My once or twice daily walks through the woods, get me into the fresh air, and relieve stress. We are lucky to live out here surrounded by woods, fields, wildlife, and stone walls.
