Many of you are aware that, back in January of this year, the neighborhood where I live took a direct hit from a tornado. Prior to the tornado, I had set up a little shady spot in the back yard where my wife could set up her hammock and take a nap. Well, that little shady spot was one of the many casualties of the tornado. The tornado destroyed most of the trees that provided the shade. As a result, for my wife’s (SWMBO – She Who Must Be Obeyed) *%th birthday in September, I decided to build her a new spot to set up her hammock with some shade. Essentially, it is just a free standing deck with a roof. Sort of a Gazebo if you will. Anyway, a friend and I spent a couple of hours finishing the installation of the roof this past Saturday morning. There are still some finishing touches to go such as hand rails and steps, but the basic structure is completed. Not exactly woodworking, but I’m just glad to have been able to get back to work on a project and complete something.
