My lovely wife wanted to redo the guest bathroom with a summertime feel to it.
She drew up this sketch and wanted it made out of the last few pieces of the barn wood stash I had.
I am proud to say it turned out almost EXACTLY as she drew it up.
Needless to say she was thrilled and many brownie points were made by me!

Nothing earth-shaking in the way of primo woodworking other than some old fashioned fun.

Haha Goose, the brownie points are few and far between after this many years of marriage, so I promise that they will be used wisely!

Happy wife – happy life! EXACTLY! Thanks knothead, I will remember that!
Doc, that is THE lesson.
Thanks for the comments guys – it seems most of you like the handles. Once again, Mother Nature knows what she’s doing.
