Shaker style peg rails
My friend Lulu have a little garden house…


Today I had coffee with my friend Lulu, and I remembered that I did not post a little project I did with her.

She have this little wonderful garden house in her small garden, and wanted some pegs for all her stuff.
I suggested her some Shaker style rails with pegs, I believed it could clear up the picture, and make it beautiful that garden tools and other stuff was hanging there in her extra living room.
And she trusted in the idea.
So the rest was just a matter of drilling a lot of holes, and cutting some round stock!

I think it became really beautiful, and thought it could be a inspiration to others.


Hope it can be to some inspiration,

Best of thoughts,

These pegs are very nice, Mads. I think that they are a nice touch and look how useful they are. I know that LuLu must be thrilled about how they turned out.

Hi,
Dennis, yes I have a woman in each port like the sailor! No the truth is, that I’m a 100% monogamus guy (I have all I ever dreamed of in my beloved Caroline).
Helluvawreck, thank you, yes she is, she said that she had sometimes tears of joy, for what I did. We acually had a fun time setting them up, she hammered all the pegs in the holes, I thought allmost her little house would fall apart, since she was so much into it.
Best thoughts,
Mads

Lucky Lulu has good taste, and a lovely garden house that is now donned with Shaker Pegs. Hey Mads the chairs in the photos look like they fold up. Could you take some pictures of the closers on those for me?

If I put 2 and 2 together, Lulu must know about me!

Maybe my maths are bad! On D-day you had a friend over for coffee. I thought it could have been Lulu…

It is bedtime for me now, I’m signing off.

The best to you, soulbrother!

You are completely right, I’m slow!
She was there for coffee on D-day, she dragged me out of the shop, while I was working on kerfmakers, listening to Marvin and she said that you were going to get a very beautiful gift with air-mail.
I can not go to bed since I have to pick up my Caroline in the airport at 01.00 night, and I can’t wait.
Good night my soul brother,
Mads
