Happy Weekend Everybody! This image is from a short building session yesterday very early morning. It’s going to be 1 (or even 2) great cutting boards when I’m done with this. Today Im focusing on a few other projects and hopefully this weekend will cross a couple items off the list. Get out there and do what you’re passionate about!

UPDATE:

Here’s one project that’s been in the works for a few weekends and is finished today. It feels good to cross something off the list, so I can make room for more projects!
