Make Over-Sized, Vintage, Game Pieces

A brief detour on the way to Halloween. I’ve come up with another (potential) Use-Up-That-Scrap-Wood project! Of course, you may be thinking that the first step in reducing scrap wood might be, perhaps, to create less scrap wood to begin with? Reasonable.

Farmhouse Style Shelf Idea

Thanks so much for all the kind words about my new focus (and for not virtually patting me on the head).  I truly appreciated it.

I'm a silly person (it's possible this has dawned on you previously) And I have a question. Is it wrong to do projects just out of spite? Because I think I just did.
