2011-08-07: Project done: The table

Exactly 3 weeks until my little girl Taylor gets married. Wow...I was just checking out her wedding website and am now listening to a video of a guy who will be playing at her wedding. "Shakey Graves". It's going to be a wonderful day, and I just can't wait....Gotta head out today and find something to wear...Nope...I still haven't done that yet...  :-o But at least I got this done yesterday:

This is a table I made out of mostly birch which was scattered around the woods out back. I thought it would make a nice table for cards or for the guestbook at Taylor and Jeremy's wedding. Kind of fits the country wedding theme. They don't have to use it and I won't be offended if they don't, but I had it in my mind and thought I'd give it a try. This is what I was cutting a few weeks ago on this blog page:
Let me tell you, it's pretty hairy trying to put a round birch log thru a table saw...But I still have all my fingers so I'll call that a success!

On another note, went to the balloon rally in Pittsfield yesterday afternoon. Weather was too windy and only a couple of balloons made it up tethered. One didn't last too long. It was banging all around and he called it quits. We left about 7:30, and didn't stay around long enough to see if they were going to do a night glow. My back was killing me again from sitting to long the night before while working.  But anyway, it seemed too windy and we still had another hour and a half before they would even attempt to do the glow.  So we cut out and went home. Oh well, there's always next year. And this morning I woke up at 4:30...Back is killing still, so I'm going to get this posted, and get out the heating pad...Grrr.. I'm too young for this. And it's raining now, so I won't be golfing today..But I really need to go out walking and stretch. Hmm. It will be a good day to walk around the malls and look for wedding attire. So that's what I'll do! See you tomorrow.
