Covid 19 projects

Recommended Posts

Hi All 

Pretty much ground to a standstill work wise so the mrs has been hitting me with painting and wallpapering tasks indoors 🤮🤮. Trying to justify being outside and messing about with timber so knocked up a single bed from leftovers of a log store build and some ash planks, not high end furniture for sure but sturdy and should do the trick. Most importantly it kept me outside and busy for a day.

Nice job but do something with that head board for gods sake. Nice chunky sub frame build and you stick a ranch rail 4x1 head board on it 😫 shocking

I shall pass you onto the mrs, my intentions was some live edge type stuff but it’s sometimes best to defer. Did I somehow break the approved bed headboard construction etiquette !!! 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

My brother usually works away three nights a week, so being at home all the time, he said that he and my sister in law are working on creating one of these:

 

Baby Poo Decoded: Is My Baby's Poop Supposed to Look Like This?

 

 

I would have thought that seeing my loony daughters (2 and 5) all the time would have been enough of a contraceptive, but I was wrong!

I know you are a self proclaimed master craftsmen and obviously now the guru of headboards ( not sure if that’s because you have seen a few close up but each to there own ) but regarding Payment in kind after 6 kids I reckon I’ve got that side of things covered 😜. Total mouse in the house that’s me Les happy wife happy life 👍😀
