Alot has changed in a year since my husband passed. My son has stepped up to the plate and has taken on the challenge of redoing our flooded cabin. He has amazed me with what he can do and how much interest he has in woodworking now! We just bought a laser/engraver and he is learning this thing with me. This is a sign for our bar at the cabin. And this is our river bar. Oh, wee made a couple barn doors too!

Looks like the genes have passed successfully and I think it’s awesome the knowledge transfer from parent to son is still on-going. Keep enjoying the process and enjoy the results as well. Thanks for sharing.

Looks great, Janice!

I haven’t been on the site too much lately, and I don’t recall hearing about your husband. Please accept my belated condolences. I’m happy to see your son doing such fine work in the cabin!

Hello Janice…it’s been a while since we’ve shared our work…
May I first express my sincere condolences for the loss of your Husband. You are a very strong person…and your son is also. The apples don’t fall far from the tree…all woodworkers!
Real nice job on the doors & bar sign….I wish I was close enough to bring my wine and raise our glasses to your success in mastering your CAD machine. I was a CAD/CAM programmer for a long time. We used a program called Mastercam.
The Spring season is just around the corner…and renewal for you and your son….God bless you both…and see you here again very soon.

As all of us are compassionate of your loss, so condolences are extended.

Sawdust is a therapy on itself. The satisfaction of making things that should be here for many decades to come.

The cabin thing is fantastic; down to the nail keg wastebasket.

My condolences, as well, for your loss. I too am happy to see that you are back to wood working. That is one really great bar and I love the sliding barn doors too. The sign is a real kick and well done. What laser/engraver are you using?

Somehow my post made it to the top Dailey 3. I don’t get it. But the comments and private messages are overwhelming.
