The Remnant Re-doer and the Woodworker

I, the remnant re-doer, collaborated with my DH, the woodworker, on a very exciting project!

He put together a wonderful plan for a shelf to display my teacup collection. And now, so soon after my happy birthday month, it is finally finished. So, that’s the woodworking part of this post, what about the remnant re-do?

The remnant project is on DH’s head!

He was out in his shop many, many hours, working on the cutting, sanding, staining, and assembly of this shelf. Some days were pretty beastly hot, and he asked if I had any remnants around to make him a sweatband to wear in the shop. I found a wash cloth that was quickly reworked. Here’s a little cartoon I drew (humor me please, it will be over soon!) on Penultimate, to illustrate the process.

I actually got to help with some of the gluing and positioning. He carved a shallow groove at the back of each shelf for the saucers to stand upright.

He said it right: “This was a labor of love!” In between the time he started and finished the shelf, he had eye surgery, finished up a semester and started a summer semester, and was honored with a standing ovation at commencement exercises when they announced him as University of Florida Engineering Department teacher of the year. Fantastic!
