My Husband a Great Carpenter and Father
My husband is a great carpenter and Father, but tonight I'm talking only about the carpenter. It started here. I came just in case he needed my help.
This is what I did while I was waiting for him to choose each board for the project.
You do see a bird face, don't you?
This is the finished table. My husband decided to build me a table because my old cutting table gave up the ghost. I also needed more storage space so my DH gave it a lot of thought and came up with this great design.
He spent weeks cutting, sanding, measuring and painting. I'm thrilled with the results. It allowed to to reorganize my studio.
I was forever moving things from on place to another because I didn't have space for everything. Now I do. I'm hoping that this will make for a neater studio.
I asked for a short shelve near the top to store things that I use on my cutting table often. Things like freezer paper, fusible web, mats,etc. The other shelves are for things I don't use often but need a storage space.
Organizing my new space called for a reorganizing of the whole room. I even cleaned out the doors in my sewing table, my files, and storage boxes behind my sewing table. I didn't get to my design walls or fabric. That will have to come much later.
Right now I have two quilts to finish and a husband to treat royally for Father's Day.
