Life With A Carpenter

Since my husband retired he has been busy honing his woodworking skills; our home has become the lucky beneficiary of his projects.  Not too long ago he decided the time was right to replace the moulding on the door opening between our dining room and foyer.  His idea was to create custom raised panel sections to match the panels below the chair rail in both rooms; I'd say he succeeded, it looked fine before but it is simply beautiful now! There are more projects such as this one on the horizon; next: a medallion on the dining room ceiling around the chandelier. I am so proud of his mad carpentry skills!
 He is as busy now as he's ever been; maybe even more so.

Life is Good!

And I am just hoping to get the window casings trimmed out in the sewing room before I host everyone in August. Mr G is almost as driven and meticulous as you I think 😊

Greetings, I love your husband's carpentry. There is nothing more satisfying than having a hubby who accomplishes tasks around the house. My hubby is a skilled wood worker, but as he's aged he doesn't do very much. Enjoy the beauty of a job well done.
Hugs,
Noreen
