    Materials are worth more than that Skeeter, and shipping would cost you three times that. LOL... This sucker is HEAVY!.. And I don't even have the legs on yet. There's a lot of sanding to be done before I stain it in a light maple and seal it.

    Damnit! I hate having weekend warrior Postal delivery people.. My carving knives came today but she won't drive up our driveway. LOL... I have to sign for it, so she left a pink slip in our mail box instead. Great! :/ Our regular Postal delivery guy, George, has a 4x4 and will bring my pkgs up to the house. Well, at least I know they made it...... Still.. Grrrr!

    Woman, fix that driveway. It's not like you've got anything else to do. Lol.

    It's not broken, so I don't want it "fixed". That's the whole idea. All she has to do is call me and I'll drive down to meet her. She has my phone number. I've lived here almost 25 years. They know my phone number by heart and know to pass it to the new weekend drivers. I am the last delivery on the route and it's a dead-end. She has to turn around to go out. It's irritating.

    IN THE MEAN TIME... I'm building a 30"x30" butcher block breakfast nook/table.

    NICE, Cammi! What kind of wood you using? I would think either hickory, oak or cypress would be good. My dad and brother were the wood workers in my family. If it was made from wood they could make it. Me? I have a celebratory drink if I saw a straight line. (Heh, heh). Just joking. I can do considerably more that that. I didn't fall THAT far from the tree.

    It's mine darlin! LOL
    I'm puttin more work into it than you would be willing to pay, I'm Afraid!

    Beo, it has hickory, alder, oak, mahogany, maple and I think some pecan and cherry. Hubs cuts and plains them for me at work. I asked him to find me the best lumber from their scrap pile, and as many different types of lumber he can find. You should see some of the beautiful counter top butcher blocks he has made for me over the years! I have 6 or so for cutting boards and several cheese and bread boards in butcher block patterns. Even a biscuit board for rolling out dough for homemade biscuits and some cedar planks for grilling salmon. I keep them oiled and seasoned, then keep them hung in the pantry for safe keeping until I need them.

    A few years back, he built me a really nice biscuit box for my birthday, for baking homemade biscuits in. It has held up exceptionally well, and talk about wonderful, soft, flaky and tasty biscuits! Mmmmmmm!
    Now all I need is a butter bowl to knead and season my fresh churned butter and I'll be satisfied!
