Default A Little More Piddling......

Spent the day Saturday repairing our wood fence. Had a few pickets left over (awww shucks....I bought too many....LOL) so my wife asked if I could cap the end. "Why not....good idea," I said. So I cut it to length, then cut it down to width. And I tacked it in place for her to see. She says, "You could carve something there, couldn't you?" (Am I smart or what? I knew I was going to carve on it.....that's why I didn't set the nails!)

So Sunday, I did the carving for her.....which made her smile! If Momma is happy, we are all happy!!

Then I went back to the wood pile and pulled out another piece of Cedar fencing and made one for me......after all, Halloween is just around the corner..........

There's a bit of SC50 bit work on the skulls and spider web.

That's right -- If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. Plus, look at all the trouble you stayed out of doing that.
