I always welcome ‘Honey Do’ requests from my wife. It gives me a purpose, and she doesn’t usually go overboard with her requests. This one is a ‘Yard Stool’ to use for her rest stops during breaks from her yard work. I’m a very lucky guy because my wife always insists on doing ALL our yard work, including the grass cutting, leaf raking, etc. she says I ‘don’t know how’ (I grew up on a farm for goodness sakes!). I just don’t do things to her standards she claims. That could be taken as an insult I guess, but the benefits are far too obvious for me to take umbrage.
Besides, her biggest pleasure is working in our yard in nice weather, and I’m going to take that away from her? I don’t think so!
The stool is made from leftover walnut and a few pieces of ash, and measures 12” x 22” x 22” high. She wanted it unfinished, but I gave it a coat of varnish for weather protection. I think it may live on our front stoop.
