projects

I love making and restoring stuff. Creating with wood, home improvement projects, restoring electronic items, and the occasional cooking adventures are all very enjoyable for me. I’ll show a “representative” picture here, and you can click on them to go to more photos and sometimes videos.

This one took awhile, because I really needed to learn a lot along the way, but very rewarding to see the finished product!. It’s around 100 years old, mahogany, and a pretty clever hidden leaf in the middle, Apr-May’19.
