At the beginning of August, with the discovery of mold in my kitchen, I began building new countertops.

The wood for this work all came from my inlaws barnwood.

After getting the countertops glued up, I was interupted by life (teaching, UPS, kids, divorce, and more).

Where I left off, I had just gotten the sections back from a local cabinetshop where it was run through a drum sander…..

Well, FOUR MONTHS LATER, what a thrill to get back into the shop three days ago. I am trying to use this time off from teaching and the shorter days at UPS to get some work done.

I am going to document my work and would love your feedback.
