Travel Theme: Wood

I don’t have to travel far to find images of wood… one of my beloved’s hobbies is wood working. In fact, one of the most daunting “gotta have’s” in our search for a retirement home was an adequate woodshop.

Here is a small sampling of his handiwork…

A game box with leather fastenings…



A bench…



A couple of shelf units:

And of course, a workbench to build on!


Training up the next generation… they designed and built these dolls together:

    Impressive work! With that big workshop, I assume your hubby is going to have fun with his woodwork.

  6. Lovely woodwork. It’s so great to have a hobby like this. My hubby also loves to work with wood and has done many projects over the years, the biggest of which was a Victorian style dining table, which, when we moved to a smaller home, was bought by an antique dealer for her own house. :)

    • That’s great! It’s a wonderful hobby, and I’m so proud of the things he makes. I think we will leave behind a couple of shelf units in this house that were built to beautifully fit their spaces. It is fun to watch these things come to life! ;-)

  7. Wowser, he does fantastic work. I would love one of those game boxes…our family loves to play games.
