I've continued on so many projects I stopped taking pictures. But I did buy a little table and umbrella for my patio so I can work from home in comfort.

Y'all try not to be too jealous of my 60's green carpet. But I replaced an old entertainment center for a tube tv with a dresser and wall mounted tv & sound bar. Ran a bit of wiring from an outlet at the floor in the wall up to a new box behind the TV.

And There i fixed it...

I really hate moving this big ass chiminea around to use it and back to the corner for storage. So I cut off the feet and welded casters to it.

@dash_cam LOL! I have one of those. Been wanting to use it as target practice but the wife, it was a gift from my MIL, says no. It’s now part of “garden decor”.

Anyone else dip wood handled knives in polyurethane?

No and I'm not sure how long poly would hold up when moisture got underneath it. I use plain mineral oil from the drugstore. Safe and doesn't go rancid.

Once a year or so I'll go through all of the knives, salad bowls and cutting boards - slathering them up and wiping them down. They hold up great to almost daily use and washing.

Fresh salads are one of the things I've missed most during this whole lock down debacle. That and a haircut, but that's being taken care of Saturday!

Once a year?! Shoooot...
I got this paring knife since about the time a graduated high school, I think. Honestly don't remember if it was my mom's or my grandmother's. But it was already dipped once. I didn't do it again until a couple years ago. No water damage here. It's absolutely my favorite kitchen knife.

I don't like poly on tool handles. Too slippery when you're working on a hot sweaty day. I always figured it'd be the same with knives that might get damp in the kitchen.

Stacked washer and dryer. Added some recycled base cabinets and a maple butcher block top that I stained with a vinagar steel wool solution. I used satin spar urathane to protect it. The top was recycled as well. Funny thing is when is sanded the old finish off I missed some spots that weren't revealed until I stained it. They Madi it look worn and kinda cool so I left it that way. Results were very happy wife. Another straw in my Bronco building hat
