It’s unseasonably warm here. Today it’s expected to all the way up to 63 and the last few days have been in the 50’s. That’s just about warm enough for me to get into the big tool shop and run the table saw. I can heat the space, but since it’s a garage that’s not the easiest thing to do so generally I just wait for warm days to work. I’ve finished most of the scroll saw projects I was working on and am switching to my backlog of bigger projects. The first one pictured here is based on the little sketch I posted a few weeks ago.
Well it is a kitty outhouse. We have a catio for the cats which included a gravel/dirt area which the cats found to be a nice toilet. We didn’t want that so our solution is put down paving stones and an outdoor littler box. To protect the littler box from sun and snow, I built this:
The whole project is made from scrap materials I had around the shop. The frame is some old 2x4s ripped into 1x2s, the siding is cedar boards from an old fence and the roof from a cat enclosure that didn’t work out. The only new thing used were the screws I used. So far the kitties are using it.
Next project is a boring picture:
This will be the top for Heather’s new quilting cutting table. She’s getting a new cutting table so I can get her old one. I currently don’t have a cutting table in my sewing area and sharing one is difficult when we each have projects going. I was going to make a new one for me, but her’s has always been too tall for her, while her’s is the right height for me, so we’ll move her’s into my room and I’m making her a new one at height for her.
The next big project will be a new bookcase for my office, a printer stand and a new sewing table for me. That’s it for this week. If you need me, I’ll be in the shop.
