Sherrif tends to eat the pine needles off the tree and we think it made him sick last year, plus the mess of pine needles is something we can both do without. So we set about doing something a tad different. I made a step ladder, and some shelves (5, one for each grandchild) out of some pallets and scrap lumber I had laying around. I was skeptical at first but it is kinda cool. Pretty much Debs idea, gotta give her props for this one.

Love it, Denny! You and Deb make a great team. (I want to be the grandkid that gets the bottom shelf ;-b )
Thanks for sharing.

Cool interpretation of an artificial Christmas tree….
Except it’s not artificial…. it IS made of wood!!!
Just call it a “De-Needled” Yule Tree!!!

I’ll let Candy have the bottom shelf….
I’m more of a “Top Shelf” drinker!!!

Great job! But I can’t identify the species. Douglas Fir? Blue Spruce? Austrian Pine? Of course if it is oak or maple you will have to call it a Yule Log. :)
Thanks for sharing and best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
