Your table is lovely, Jeekins. I sooo miss seeing Buck's woodworking projects and treasure the many he made over the years.

In Buck's words, though, "What's the table the rest of the time...when it's not occasional?" He always said that when someone said they had an occasional table.

For many years Buck subscribed to Fine Woodworking, which is an awesome publication. I loved thumbing through the pages and marking things I wanted him to build.

Me too Katie.

I thought the same thing about the "occasional" thing. What, do you put it away or something? lol End table seems more like bedroom. I guess.

Fine Woodworking & Homebuilding are excellent magazines. In fact, the project I'm working on (the super, ultra secret one) is from that magazine.

Jeekins, are you insulting my cakes?

This is the second last wedding cake I did and I am not sure if I posted it before. It looks sloppy on the picture, but in real life the icing not being smooth was intentional and looked pretty good.

Wouldn't it be funny if the bride was carrying the groom!

The bride bought that topper but her aunt wanted her to use the crystal one because it had been handed down through the family so I incorporated both!

I love how you did that. It kind of symbolizes that the bride and groom are just starting out and will make the journey forward (or up) together.

Suzi, I love your cross-stitch. I haven't done cross-stitch in a while, but I enjoy doing it too.
