Over the past couple of weeks, I've been spending most of my free time out in the garage working on a variety of woodworking projects. Although my Nachos Grande blog is primarily baseball (and baseball card) related, I thought it'd be fun to share some of my recent projects here with all of you.
In total, I've completed three different projects within the last two weeks - two of the projects were quite quick while the third I actually began over a month ago but only recently put the finishing touches on! For today's post, I'll highlight the two quicker projects - with the post for the project that I teased here coming in the near future!
About two weeks ago, my wife said to me "I'm bored - build me a birdhouse so that I have something to paint!" Not being one to want to disappoint my lovely bride, I did exactly that - and then she painted it so that we ended up with the final product:
After the success of the first birdhouse, my second project ended up being a second birdhouse - this one was destined for my grandmother though as a gift. Given how happy I was with the first birdhouse, I ended up taking a few "during" shots in the process of building my second home for the birds!
I've been getting more and more into woodworking and so building the two birdhouses was a lot of fun. I even briefly contemplated building more and trying to sell them - perhaps I will do that someday. For now though, I'll enjoy the one birdhouse that we have hanging up and continue to keep my eyes peeled for future design ideas!
