    decided to take advantage of the nice weather yesterday and convert some firewood into something vaguely useful -- no power tools involved other than the chainsaw that harvested the wood last year.

    Started working on a set of cornhole boards.

    First time doing any wood work like this.

    I’ve learned a lot so far. Just taking it slow.

    Still have some work to do.
    This is only the first one, wanted to get it all done other than finish before I start the other one.

    The Hat I’ve been Knitting the past few days :) I almost have it shrunk to size but it needs to dry over night to make sure . I noticed the colors mad it hard to photograph but it looks a lot cleaner in person.
    Picture 1: Blocked on a cooking pot.
    Picture 2: Family member wearing to avoid shrinkage
    Picture 3: Doubling the hat over to allow the correct snugness when finished.

    less than an hour - I cheated and did it all on the belt sander.
    did the heavy hogging with a fresh 36 grit, then came back with a 60 grit to convex and clean up.
    gotta love ceramic grits for durability!
