There is something magical about creating a physical object with your hands. I love the Interwebs as much as the next guy, but to be honest I feel more fulfilled when I produce a work of art or craft something from raw materials that I can hold and touch.

I have started working on a table for Tara. She wants to be able to look out over the lake when she is working from home. It will also serve as a dinner table for our little family when Zane is old enough to be in a high chair.

I am overbuilding it a bit. It is made of thick cedar lumber and will have a very heavy top. My goal is to make this a keepsake that will be in our family well into the future. I will post pics of the progress as I reach major milestones.

When was the last time you built something with your hands?
