My sweetie found a craft project and asked me to make her a pumpkin. OK.
It is just scrap 2x4 cutoffs glued together and painted orange. I made a stem from a piece of scrap wood and nailed it to the top.
Some of the 2x's are from a pallet board. I ran all of the pieces across the jointer on two sides and one edge. Then I glued them together. After it dried, I hit all the edges with a sander just to knock off the edge.
It is ready for her to do any decorating she wants to add.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
