Great Weather + Pallets = Lots of Fun!

A new tray to help me transport my current reading
selection and cup of tea out to the garden.

I was finally able to get back to my workshop this weekend that's in the garage.  The weather here has been unbearably hot the past few weeks and it's kept me from doing any major woodworking in the garage. It's like a furnace in there when the temperature rises.  Thank goodness it doesn't happen too often here in San Diego.

DIY Pallet Bulletin Board

As you know, I'm always trying to make something new out of pallets.  Here is one of my latest creations using pallet boards and salvaged wood.  I love combining different types of wood, sanding each board, and then seeing what new life they take on.  I made two bulletin boards and have listed this one in my Etsy shop. You can see that listing here.  I'm keeping the other one for myself and will use it to display Christmas cards we receive.

My Beautiful City

I love San Diego. Some days I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming when I'm
walking downtown.  I thought I would share some pictures I took one afternoon when my daughter and I took a few minutes to walk along the harbor.
