First Woodworking Project

COMPLETE!

We are going back to our newly acquired land this weekend! Now, we are still working on a road into where we plan to build the cabin and we are a ways out from breaking ground. But, there are things that we need to have while we are out there working, especially with 2 little boys. So, Big Buckaroo constructed this:

Isn't it great. A place to sit and eat!!!! Now I have to put a coat of paint on the bench seats today, but I had to wait because my awesome hubby routed our names into the benches! I just imagine one day adding the Little Buckaroo's wives names and then their kids names to it (in that order I pray). It is big, sturdy, very nice and well, very heavy. Although Big Buckaroo will take it apart, it is going to be HARD getting it to the campsite (remember the road is not complete).

There is plenty of room for guests, so pack a picnic and head this way! (you can help carry it in to the campsite while I direct, hehe)

That is awesome! The names on the bench seats is a unique idea, too. You guys never cease to amaze me. You are what FAMILY should be. I'm going to look in the dictionary to see if the word "FAMILY" has you 4 in a picture beside it. I think you will be in there!

What a cool idea about the names in the seats.
My inlaws painted a tree on the side of the shed at the house in the woods. It's the family tree and we always add the names for spouses & children as they come along.
A friend of mine has everyone sign the tablecloth at Christmas. Then she embroiders the names on. She uses a different color every year, so it's neat to see the different people who come every year.
Have fun in the woods! No better place to be. Well maybe the beach once in awhile!
