Had a nice little run this morning. Cool and crisp and sunny out. Listened to Prince. Obviously.
Hill left town yesterday. She’ll be in Israel for the next ten days, with a group of fellow PHD students presenting at a conference. Whoa. (Not really sure what I’m going to do with myself!! work.. yeah. Probably work.)
Yesterday I finished up a set of four stools that I’d been meaning to get around to for ages.
About six months ago, on the way home from dinner with a friend, I found a a big (4′X6′) oak table top on the street. After looking around for someone that it could possible belong to, Brenden and I carried it home. The bulk of it became a dining room table that I’d promised my brother over a year ago. I cut the tops for these stools out of a chunk that remained. Far too small to get more than two full circles out of, but I decided that it wouldn’t bother me at all if they weren’t FULL circles. The legs are brazed 4130. Pretty happy with them.
Perfect for the kitchen side of our counter/dining room table. They can slide under and stay out of the way when the kitchen is busy.
