We’re young and crazy and sometimes forget that our life is not an HGTV episode.  We woke up Saturday with the plan to clean the house for Thanksgiving and build a table for our holiday meal.

Then we decided to first make an entertainment center and bookshelves instead.  I’m proud of the amount of work we got done this weekend.  I won’t include pictures of the entertainment center because we want to surprise family that is visiting later this week, but I will include a few sneak peaks.

Finally, woodworking is a bit like sewing, I spent a lot of time this weekend ironing maple vaneer edging onto the sides of boards.  The edging looks like tape and has a thin layer of wood on one side (vaneer) and heat-activated adhesive on the other.  It reminded me of ironing on facing to fabric. (Is that the correct term?)
