DH has a couple of activities that occupy him during his free time. One is the playing the flute, and the other is woodworking. Often, after a day at the office, he disappears into his shop and creates beautiful things. We have a house full of exceptional furniture that he's built, and he made a round crib for the grandbaby that was really, really special.
I knew he was unusually talented when we met. He didn't have a dining room in his house--instead, he was building a harpsichord in what would otherwise have been a dining room.
For many years after we married, we didn't have a dining room . . . but all that has changed now. And the other day, after an eight-month labor of love, he completed the china cabinet, and we completed our dining room. Even though the photos don't do it justice, I thought I'd share a picture of the finished work.
