Shop update #128 (4-8-20)

Do you remember the Aldo Leopold bench that I made a few years ago?  I sold that one and then made 3 or 4 more to sell.  I sold all but 1 and it’s been sitting in my back patio area since.  It’s been sitting under the lattice portion so it’s been abused by sun and rain.  I decided to take it apart and refinish it.  It took most of Saturday afternoon but I am very happy with the results.  Look for a more detailed article coming soon.

I put 3 coats of finish on the bench so I repaired my wife’s wind chime while it drying between coats.

On Sunday my boys and I made a stained glass mural out of masking tape and sidewalk chalk.  Video at the bottom of this post.

I also started work on a couple of Mandalorian helmets but the rain came and halted my progress.

I plan to make 2 or 3 of the Aldo Leopard bench to give to my daughter & family to use around the fire pit at their cottage. Easily moved around, depending on where the smoke is blowing! Otherwise they’d serve well as flower pot stands against the house.
