Great Summer!!

The granddaughters each do a project when they visit in the summer.  The post Olivia’s fence was one of them.  This summer Olivia made a chair.  She hammered 90% of the nails while I helped and held.  It is probably the best looking chair to ever come off the farm.








If you look at my Bucket List Post you’ll see my Cherry Wood Strip Canoe.  I have given the granddaughters rides in it for years and they were told – The summer you turn 14, you’re coming for 2 weeks and we are making a canoe.  Lauren made her canoe this summer.  She did every function: table sawing boards into strips, planing to thickness, cove and bead w a router, glue and clamp, sand, fiberglass and epoxy, finish work and varnish.  She even caned the seat.  She stuck with it.  I got to spend 100 hours with my granddaughter.  It is 3/16 in thick Wild Cherry and weighs 33 lbs.  Every piece of wood came from our woods.
