What's new around the house?

This is my little project. I needed something for over
the sofa in the first floor parlor. I picked this unfinished pine shelf up at A.C. Moore's and stained it with a mahogany gel stain. Frank was kind enough to let me use his wood shop, (it makes me feel real professional).

I was very pleased with how it turned out, the gel stain
was the perfect finish. Sometimes pine grabs stain in a very unevenpattern. The gel was very easy to work with also.


This is Frank's latest project. He has been working on this for awhile since real life keeps him quite busy. He really is such a craftsman. He asked what I wanted and he built it. I just love it, and him for building it for me!

Thanks, Honey...good job!
