Y'all know I'm a country girl, right? We're just average hunting, fishing, (try to) grow your own food, diy kinda rednecks. Scott is a mechanic and can fix pretty much anything…from cars to lawnmowers to the plumbing (thank God!). Ever heard that song, "Country Man?" That is my man in a nutshell! And he's quite the woodworker too! He's built me a desk and my work table and he built me a gorgeous walnut rocking chair too.
This is what he's working on now…
It's out of a pecan tree that he and his brother cut and took to the saw mill and he's hand crafted the whole thing! Each slat in the headboard and footboard have mortise and tennon joints as do the side rails. All done by hand. It is awesome! I'm so proud of it…for Cash. It's so special for the kids to have these pieces that Scott has made to take with them one day. What a treasure!
Now he thinks he needs to build a chest too! On to the next project!
Well, I just had to brag on my man for a bit. See, I'm not the only crafty one in this family…he's definitely a keeper 🙂
