I have been fixing up things around the house since last spring in order to prepare it for sale. Thus little to no more work on the CT has been done. But tomorrow, I start back on the trailer.

Built floating shelves for our TV and put all the wiring behind the wall.

Added building roofing to under our deck to provide a dry area for my wife to sit under when it rains.

For 13 years our garage was unpainted after construction. Had the garage painted and then I built these shelves to get "stuff" off the floor. I still have a ways to go to declutter, but it is a start. Oh and my new 160W solar panels came yesterday. I had not unpacked them yet.

I carve tikis and Polynesian inspired bone pendants, and paint with Polynesian themes. Haven't touched the stuff in over 5yrs though, might revisit it one of these days.

I was busy in November making a smaller dining table of my own design for our home.
I've been collecting Canary Wood and Figured Western Maple for some time now, the legs are made from 12/4 American Black walnut $> spendy stuff.
Image
Here it is in the 36" wide x 48" long daily use size.
The dark spots are Walnut dowels for expansion/contraction issues with solid wood table tops.
Image
Here it is fully extended with two 15" x 36" leaves.
Love the way the finish makes the Figured Western Maple pop.
The chairs we will be using are the folding chairs ( in the photo) we purchased at Costco, easier and cheaper than building and easy to store.

Now it looks like (Jane's request & mine too) I'll be replacing the sofa end tables and coffee table I built in 1988 to match the new table.
The finish is spar urethane to prevent damage to the finish (it's waterproof) in the event of a undetected spill like on the previous veneered table.
:D Danny

In my spare time I like to build fiberglass longbows and recurves. Here are a few that I have built.

Very nice work, Tom. I always wanted to build one of those 50's style recurves, but I got stuck on selfbows and eventually ran into elbow problems that limited my tool use. Still love to shoot 'em, though!
The more stuff I take along, the more time I spend taking care of my stuff!
