    A Rustic Shelf

    Love the shelf, Leo. Rustic works just fine for me. Regional craft shows have some great stuff and can be a real gold mine for handcrafted pieces of all kinds. For several years, back when macrame was a craze, my wife had a booth at a major craft show circuit similar to this one, with shows in...

    The missus is under the weather and has some mobility issues. I'll be lurking close by in case she needs help. With company coming in early December, shop and house clean up are high up on the schedule. Still need to get started on a cutting board and decorative box.
