One of the neat things about spending more time with my father are the more impressive DIY projects I’m able to tackle. Well, to be honest, he does the bulk of the work, teaching me along the way. Even now I can easily spot different types of wood out of oak, pine, birch and cedar. And that may not be a huge deal but considering I would have given you a blank look if you asked me a month ago, well, that’s progress, people.
Someday I’ll be able to make these stunning projects all by myself. But I don’t know if I’ll really want to. I enjoy making things with my dad. He’s good company and a as a big a dork as me so we laugh at the same humor. Plus we both have a tendency to work hard and push ourselves to do better.
Our most recent project was to make a little homework desk for a little boy using vintage yardsticks as the table top. We had some ups and downs with the project and had some issues with the “vintage” sticks I got through Ebay but in the end, the table is flat out stunning if you ask me. And it’s just about the most perfect place for a little boy to learn reading, writing and arithmatic, too!
So head on over to iLoveToCreate to see how to make your own DIY Yardstick Table, or just to read through the tutorial and check out my dad’s awesome handiwork yet again!
