Little Play House

Awhile ago I shared a photo on instagram with a kind of cryptic message saying "Another fun day making special things for special people." Well the gift has been given so I can share it here. Our lovely friends Hannah and Eric had their first child last month and we wanted to do something super special for them. 
Will and I have such a fun time making and designing wood projects for our friends on special (even if we end up having to go to extreme measures to finish some of them haha). Thankfully, the little play house went together pretty darn easily, and yes I did individually glue each one of those little shingles.
While we are in Phoenix we don't have accesses to as many tool for projects but I think my dad has enough so we can still make lots of fun things for Christmas gifts. We are actually planning on building a sandbox for my nephew this year (even though it might be a little bit until he can actually use it hehe). 

Do you guys like to make things for friends and family?

Happy Monday!

  3. Over the next few days I plan on finishing my last two handmade gifts: an embroidered logo from Game of Thrones for my husband and something super secret for an online friend. :)

  4. Sometimes I wish I lived in WV with you, because you do awesome fun things that I want to be part of. I've been dating my woodworker for almost 3 years and I'm just started to get interested in learning things! He's been turning candlesticks on his lathe and we are going to make a bed soon. We watched the video Will made of your house building project as inspiration a while back. love the blog!

  6. Wow- it looks great and that's such a super sweet gift. Handmade gifts are the best to give and receive. It's funny that you say that you don't have access to as many tools as your used to because it looks like a sweet setup in these photos :)

  7. I love this! What an awesome gift to receive. This year I painted a train table top for my kids. Sometime this weekend I'll nail down the tracks. I think they'll love it and I can see it definitely being something they treasure when they get older and show their kids.
