WONDER FAIR

Chris and I did some Christmas shopping downtown on Mass Street and ran across Wonder Fair above the Casbah Burger Stand. Wonder Fair sells handmade artist-editioned merchandise and hosts monthly art openings. They have some really cute, local art that we enjoyed perusing. Can’t wait to go back!

Shed Workbench

I needed a little workbench in the shed so I would have an area for working on projects. I had an old bookshelf standing in and it just wasn’t cutting it. So, I cleared everything out of the way and came up with a plan.

After a quick trip to pick up some lumber, Chita and I were ready to get to work. We made quick work of getting our frame together. Then we had to figure out some angles for our supports but we got ‘em made.

I had a left over piece OSB from another project so I cut it down and used it for the top. It turned out great! It’s really nice to have a small workbench for the backyard projects.

On second thought, you should have followed them. All day. Gator Chomping.

Wouldn’t that be seriously awesome?

We needed some help with one of our projects and our buddy, Jared, gave us a hand to help speed up the process. As a thank you, I built him a small workbench that he was wanting. It didn’t take too long to build and it turned out really nice. We delivered it and he quickly found a home for it in his garage.
