In this video Husband and I make the bed frame (well, I hardly helped with the frame 🙂 ) and headboard to match our nightstands. We used maple boards and maple plywood. Husband designed it all and he also CNC’d an image to put on the foot board.
Now our bedroom set is complete! Thanks for watching!
Husband’s verse for the door on his side:
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
My verse for the door on my side:
Romans 16:19 …but I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil.
I made this frame way back in March, right after I made the panels for my mom’s roll top desk. And I am just getting around to sharing it all with you. 🙂 At the end of the build video I tacked on a myth busting video we did with our friends while on vaca in Arizona. My friend saw a video that showed you could stretch an egg and roll a loaf of bread after they’d been cooked and soaked in an energy drink. So he wanted to see if it was true or not. To see whether it worked you can check it out at the end of the video.

I’ve been wanting to make a little bedside table or nightstand for awhile. Husband said we should make one for his side too so that is what we did! I drew up a sketch and then Husband made it into a more detailed drawing with measurements and all that good stuff. We used maple wood to match some dressers he made last year and we both worked on these together, making matching but mirrored nightstands.
This month we had a lot of smoke from all of the fires here in Oregon and it was recommended to stay inside when the air quality was really bad. So the only time we went outside was when we went from the house to the shop. The filter system we have in the shop worked really well at keeping the air smoke-free in there. Thankfully the smoke has cleared and a lot of the fires are contained to some level and we are free to roam around outside again! What a year this has been! Thanks for watching everyone!
Isaiah 48:17Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.
John 6:67-69 So Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you want to go away as well?” 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, 69 and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”
The verses Husband picked, although he may have used a different version. The following in the English Standard Version:
Philippians 4:8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
It’s been a few weeks since I published a video and with all of the fires that have happened in Oregon this month, I thought I would make a short video updating the situation in my area. The closest fire to my house was 21 miles away, it was small in comparison to the other fires that have happened on the western side of Oregon. I want to mention that the towns of Detroit, Blue River, Vida, Phoenix, and Talent have been completely burned. This has been a very difficult time for a lot of people and many more towns have been impacted by the fires. Smoke was at a hazardous level all across Oregon for quite a while, but rain has come to help with the fires and clear the smoke.
I’m very thankful for those firefighters out there who have been working around the clock to get these fires under control. I’m also thankful we, personally, did not need to evacuate and have not suffered any loss from the fires. There have been many who have been evacuated, lost their homes, and lost their lives. Please remember them and if you feel led to help there are many ways to give financial support. And please keep them in your prayers.
I got this bench at a garage sale and the wood was in pretty bad shape but I could see an opportunity to replace and restore the bench. This is a Berkeley Forge and Foundry Imperial Collection Bench. I looked up some information about this bench and it really isn’t anything special, but for me, it was a great find. The original wood is oak but I replaced it with cedar. I also love the wrought iron frame that holds the wood planks so I cleaned those up and gave them a fresh coat of paint. And what a surprise to see the original bolts have brass tops! I wanted this to be a weekend project but it ended up taking me three days to complete. It really turned out great and it was very fun to do.
I had a piece of juniper wood that I planed down and decided to draw some conifer and birch trees on it. Then I wood burned the drawing and painted the birch trees white. I added a few hooks to make it into a coat rack.
I put a verse on the back, it is a partial verse that says, “Put on your coat and follow me.” It is from Acts 12:8 and the entire verse says, “Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your sandals.” And Peter did. Then the angel said, “Put on your coat and follow me.”” (new century version)
I had a few blunders along the way but nothing that couldn’t be fixed. So it took some trial and error to get it done but I really like how it turned out.
Here are a few things I used in the video today, these are affiliate links:
I’ve messed up on the last two projects I’ve been working on and I have an old project video I’ve also been working on but I don’t have it done yet so I thought I would just have a talk about stuff video.
I asked if people had any questions about my mom’s roll top desk build and I got two questions. So I answer those in this video. I also chat about the week we had with Nadine and Noah earlier in August and show some pictures of our adventures.
I talk about my shirt that people commented about and how I have them up for sale on my website.
I also show some pictures of Wally and Gibbs because I was asked to make a video about them a long time ago and have never finished that one either, so I figured I could do some of that in this video.
I chat a bit about pre-2020 life and wonder if we will ever see it again. And about how Jesus told us to love God and love people which would solve all the problems, but it is hard for us to do.
Thanks for hanging out with me while I chat up a storm. I hope to see you soon with something I’ve successfully made in the shop. 🙂
Matthew 22:37-39 (NCV) Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and most important command. 39 And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’
There was a blue bird hitting itself against our windows so I thought I should make it a bird feeder because perhaps it is hungry. I found an awesome free pattern, see the link below, and I made this great feeder.
I saw the blue bird sitting on top of the feeder once, but the other birds eat from it! We really love watching them and the feeder is a hit because they go through seed really quickly!
Psalm 104:12 (NCV) Wild birds make nests by the water; they sing among the tree branches.
