The Day BEFORE the 1st Day of Spring?

So, what did you do today?  Bud put his butt in this pretty white truck and headed to work at Vermont Custom Cabinetry.  Was NOT a fun drive @ 5:30 am, by the way.
Me? Well, I took a look outside and luckily I have the option and equipment to work from home.  So, today, snow day for the girls, work at home day for me.

Which location would you choose for the microwave? And why?

Ok, more snow pics, this is crazy!
What happened to the pool?
 This is pretty....but really?
 Barn cats wanted to come inside, not going to happen.
 Nope, you are very cute, sorry Tigg.

Buddy comes home and gets the snow blower going.  The girls are I did clean the barn (during my lunch break)!!

Window Seat & Bookcases / Progress

I was right, yeah!  Progress shots, here we go.
Window seat cabinet box pieces.
Install furring strips to connect the boxes.
Boxes connected, waiting on the front frame.
Bookcase cabinets get some color....are you ready?
Shelving will be walnut, contrasting nicely, we think.
 Drawer box pieces and panels ready for shaping.
 Stile and Rails and Panels...Oh MY
Shaping, Routing, Sanding (Bud doesn't enjoy the sanding part).
Door & Drawer Front, PRETTY
How do you know if pieces are warped or twisted?  They won't lay flat!
Test Fit Complete (no gaps)
Tall Cabinets Connected
Waiting for Front Frame (still needs to be built)
Glued Up Doors

This is getting exciting!

Solid Wood Top (who said anything about plywood) for Window Seat!

Stay tuned!
