Wood Working


Papa started this little wood working project the other evening . We have our horse club banquet to go to next Sat and there will be a silent auction and Papa decided to make a few small hand crafted wood working items for it . We will also be taking photo albums of club members  riding in the events and maybe just maybe get some more sold . One club member who is also a show judge Christy  has bought a lot from us already  and thanks to her we now are known for our photos with in the large Amish community  we have in the area so when they need photos of their horses to  sell  either in a magazine or private they call  on us now !

Papa has a few more horsey  wood working ideas  and has all of them blue printed and ready to be made in his wood shop .  PSST ! … the good thing is , I get some made for me to hehe !

       Wood working .. Oh that reminds me of the tree we have waiting to get taken down  from last week when  half of it snapped in the wind storm !

Hydro forestry  has finally told us they  will take the tree down for us in a few days  the guy showed up yesterday to mark it for the workers . At the time we were hoping that it is their responsibility as we have heard  all sorts  .. boy they weren't  to quick about letting us know that’s for sure ..  good thing Papa strapped it to stop it from falling in the winds we have had  ,  the lady from the hydro forestry Papa talked to said there is a lot of miss information about trees and hydro wires and people do not know what to do . If a tree is hanging  over  and endangering the live wires it is hydro's  responsibility   and by law they are the only ones that can take care of it because of the live wires , the don't haul it away   but that’s ok with us  we will keep some and put the rest with a free wood sign at the end of the drive way it will be gone in no time around here lol   …  FEW !!! so that will be that all done soon .

  Cool this morning   5°C  or 41°F but fresh .. a few clouds rolling around but the sun seems to be pushing through !  

                                        Any who  I am off to take Miggs for her walk  .

                             More wood working projects will be posted as Papa gets them done !

                                                  Until next time .. have a good day !

Hi Elaine.... Great work Papa, and the opportunity from your interest in horses has payed off!!
Glad the tree situation is settled, and the responsibility is off your shoulder to take it down!!
Have a great day!!

It is cold here today; just got back from taking Hunter on his morning walk. I'm so impressed with your hubby's skill; my hubby is also a wood worker but probably not that intricate. You know you've been married to a wood worker a long time when you go into a wood store and love the smell of the lumber.
Have a great day.
Hugs, Noreen

It is a sunny but coolish day with some winds. We did our walk down to the corner, around the park, and back. It takes about 30 minutes in total and was a nice refreshing walk. We also went to the library this morning. Papa does lovely woodworking projects.

Papa is very talented, I've admired his work before when you've posted this, and this is also a great show of his talent!

The wooden horseshoe is a great idea for the silent auction and all the better for being handmade. Nice to know you are getting some additional photo business from the horse club photos too. Thanks for the update on the tree story too, Elaine.
