Well its a done deal…my daughter has hitched her wagon to “whats-his-name”....lol They decided they wanted an outdoor “rustic” wedding and that opened the door for lots of projects for ole dad to piddle on. I had posted the arbor I built earlier but added a pic of it in use. None of these projects required much skill to complete but recieved several positive comments so I am posting them in case anyone else needs a bit of inspiration for some small touches to an outdoor event such as this. The first are some wooden disks I cut out of a piece of firewood. Think it might be wild cherry but my wood identification skills are sadly lacking..lol About an inch thick through bandsaw, sand one side and a small hole drilled in it to pass the ribbon. My wife used a paint marker to write verses from I Cor 13 on them. Worked well to turn a gate into a wedding fixture…lol
Second project was a simple piece of 1/2” plywood (21” x 60”) that I sanded, primed then painted with chalkboard paint. My daughter added the wedding information to it and I attached a couple of “mater” stakes to it so it could be placed at the beginning of the seating area. I added a picture of “whats-his-name” so you can watch for him…if you see him, tell him you know her dad and are watching him….lol For my lumberjock buds who have been offering moral support through this dreadfull process…thanks y’all.
