Carved Mesquite BowlI have had this chunk of Mesquite laying around for quite a while. Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I finally started carving on it and was surprised at how beautiful the grain was when I was finished. You never know what might be inside of Mesquite.

Kitchen renovation

Furnished content.

Kitchen renovationThis is by far my biggest project to date. We bought a fixer-upper for our daughter and grandchildren and did a lot of work on the bedrooms and exterior. However the kitchen was in really rough shape. We priced out prefab cabinets but even the high dollar ones were particle board crap. We made cabinets, shelves, countertops, and a hutch from scratch. Along the way we had to do some major plumbing, electrical, and subfloor work. In the attached pics you can see my wife helping with the demo. She also did all the painting of the cabinets. Cabinets are made out of maple-faced plywood for casework and solid maple for doors and face frames. This was the first time I had ever used a Kreg pocket hole jig and I was very impressed with how fast it was to make strong joints. Countertops and shelves are birch. We put in a subway tile backsplash, clapboard wall covering and boxed-in above where old cabinets where removed. Topped it off with a farmhouse style sink and viola. All in all this was a fun project.
