I was shopping online for a new couch for the river and came across picture number 5. They sell it at Cabellas, found it at Walmart on line and then again somewhere else online cheaper than Walmart and free curbside shipping so I had it shipped to my husbands work. Best deal ever! But of course I noticed the tables in the ad and just had to build them myself. Very easy to build but I did get to use my new Kreg Jig my husband bought me for X-mas. I like my new tool and hope I have more time to spend in the work room this year. But I doubt it, running out of room to put things.

Thanks Charlie! I was just thinking, when I go to Lowes and buy a few boards and turn it into something, it’s just fun! That’s all it is for me.

Ah I miss cabins by the river, in fact, I miss all lakes. Not many here in the Islands. I’ll share my beach if you share your river. Oh yea, I do like the table set…you did a great job on those

Nice tables. They look new and sleek with a touch of rustic. I love em. Love the metal accent at the top of the legs. What is that anyway?

Thanks guys. Vicki. they are just rusty corner brackets I bought online. Problem is I only bought enough to make two table because I didn’t really want a coffee table, but my husband talked me into it. Now I can’t remember where I bought them. I also put rusty clavois nails (I guess that’s what they are called) but you can’t see them in the picture. I only had enough to do the coffee table. Oh well, I have more shopping to do if I feel like I really need them on the end tables too.

They will get plenty of use Monte, especially the coffee table. It’s narrow enough that I can move it out of the way and use it for a bench instead of a table when necessary.
And the cabin is coming along, we are so close to getting it done! But my husband thinks he’s going fishing this spring, so I don’t know how far we’re really going to get with this, this year. Went out there a couple weeks ago to find a window busted. The screen isn’t ripped so we don’t know if the wind was so bad that it broke the window or the cold. Not sure what happened and will probably never know. We also didn’t have water. We got that fixed this past weekend by the well company, it was a major fix. Not sure what that bill is going to be yet. It’s always something! As much fun as I have working on the place, it’s no fun working on it every time we go out there, so my husband gets to go fishing this spring. Hopefully our ship comes in before the dock rots again!

Nice work, Janice. Things are really coming together.

My husband has promised that we will go fishing this spring. We need to fill the freezer with fish again!
