Hey Folks,

Just in case any of you were starting to worry, yes I am still alive and kicking. A nasty infection following elective ankle surgery, and a bout with the flu that every other person on the planet seems to have, set me back on my heels a bit. But today the sun was out, and as I started peeling off layers of heavy wool clothing, I thought it might be nice to work outside.

So okay, it's not fine woodworking, but it looks good from ten feet away. :wink:

I had originally thought that some 24" x 24" terra cotta flue tiles would make good bottomless planters at the base of the posts supporting the picnic shelter/pavilion. But 24" x 24" flue tiles cost $176 a piece, and I had to go out of town to pick them up. That wasn't going to happen. I'll pay a lot for good lumber, but for clay flue tiles, nuh-uh.

Some treated 2x8s, 2x4s, and some rough sawn cedar for trim, and I had an outdoor project. I plan to make four of them, and plant some vines (clematis, honeysuckle, etc) to train up the posts. I'll post another photo when I have them all finished and another when things get planted.

Cheers,
Tom

Glad your well.................as much as I like fine woodworking, sometimes other stuff is great fun too.

I make simple edge grain cutting boards for gifts...........people always appreciate them.
