A couple of things about the above picture...........

1. Thomas Trouble insists on wearing those ear phones when power tools are being used. He nearly jumps out of his skin at the sound of a saw, chainsaw, lawn mower, tractor, etc. etc. Seriously, the noise is almost too much for him to bear.

2. That tool. The macdaddy saw. I got to use that bad

I (we) finished my very first project from Knock Off Wood.

I figured I would start simple. I first told Einstein about this picnic table I wanted to make for the boys a few weeks ago. This past Sunday we made it happen.
Einstein helped but I got to do a lot of it by myself. We both built, sanded and primed it. And him and Thomas Trouble painted it yesterday afternoon.

(We only had one minor incident involving Mr. Mean and a coffee can full of paint thinner and paint brushes. I won't get into it here, but for the record, he DID NOT drink it AND the incident DID NOT happen on MY watch, *cough* Einstein *cough*!)

I'm very happy with the outcome and already have project No. 2 picked out!

That table is seriously awesome! I love it! I'm so jealous that you pulled that bad boy together! It looks just great.

And I'm glad Mr. Mean didn't have to go have his stomach pumped. (Einstein. Tsk. Tsk.)

Great job on the table! I have probably 15 projects saved in a folder that I want to do from that blog! Love Ana White!! I can't wait to see what you have next. :)

That looks great! My husband would be rapturous if I asked to use his power tools. He has been waiting a long time for that to happen.
