This past weekend, we enjoyed two days of 70+ degree weather here in Castle Rock, Colorado. The formerly huge piles of February snow in the yard have finally melted.
Consequently, the handsawgeek did not spend any time at all doing woodworking in the Basement Annex.
Instead, I exchanged the shop apron for a gardening hat and spent a good amount of time outdoors, building up and preparing a raised garden bed, moving some perennials, and doing general yard cleanup.
I should mention that a little time actually was spent in the Basement Annex, but this was in the form of setting up a table to hold some flats for indoor starting of select veggies and flowers. I annually give up a little wood shop space this time of year for such enterprises because of the good south facing window well that lets in lots of sunlight.
Anyway, as I was puttering about the yard, I happened to take note of all of the various items I have built out of wood for use in the gardens, so here are some pics….
Cedar garden cabinet. This thing was built about 12 years ago while I still lived in Colorado Springs. Annual application of water-seal stain has kept it in very good shape.
Garden bed made from standard landscaping timbers with notches cut in them to make them into what are essentially big Lincoln Logs. Gosh, need to slap some stain on these….
Not woodworking, but close… A planter made out of TREX cutoffs from a deck build I did a couple of years ago. This thing is nearly indestructible, water-proof, and extremely heavy!
Other planters made from 2×8 cutoffs from the same deck build.
Woodworking and Gardening….Good!
