Wood marathon

We're gearing up for a real wood sanding-staining marathon weekend here.

Today, Steve spent 6 hours shopping for wood at our favorite wood source Owl Hardwood. For woodworkers, this place is truly the bomb. If you haven't been there, I highly recommend it.
If you've been reading my blog lately, you might be saying to yourself, "More wood??? Why I thought they already have quite alot of wood around there..." And you'd be right.

But we had some damaged base molding that needed to be replaced as well as a few pieces of the coffered ceiling, and the window stops were pretty trashed. And we are adding some picture molding and beadboard. So today, Steve brought home a decent pile of wood for us to sand and stain.

Steve called me at work today to warn me...."Honey, I just want you to know I'm bringing home some more wood-it's kind of alot. I just want you to be prepared."

Me-blanching on the phone, "How much is it? Can you tell me how many arms full it is?" I judge wood by how much I can carry in one trip to the garage you see.

After this phone call, I announced to my co-workers (who know all about the saga of the wood), "Steve's bringing home more wood! Can you believe it?" They laughed. And I kidded with them that if we ever have children, we should name them Maple or Oak. Yes, I am in deep folks.

This sanding-staining marathon will begin tomorrow after work.

Let the games begin.

Actually, Maple sounds like a kinda cute name. :)

Our friends' daughter is named Jadyn Oak! I think it is a gorgeous name.
