Did a lot of productive things today not the least I which are these two woodworking projects.

I found these railroad spikes a few years back. It was a super hot summer day and a bunch of us went out to Oneonta gorge to scramble over a log jam and swim under a waterfall. My friend Steve locked his keys in his car and we waited for hours until the roadside assistance came to help. I collected these spikes while we waited.

The board is Oregon myrtle. Just look at that grain. So beautiful. All I did was fine sand it and oil it.

I used part of the 8’ plank to make a backer for these house numbers I’ve been meaning to put up for awhile now.

Two projects down!
