Trees Were Killed To Make This Post

I need to take a moment and brag on my guy a bit.

Ever since building the amazing kitty condo a year and a half ago, Kevin has taken an interest in wood working.  Actually, the interest was there before but he just hadn't done much with it.  Last year he designed and built our wonderful spice rack so one can quickly find the cumin. 
Just recently he built an LP holder for all of my old albums.  It holds all of them beautifully and is on wheels so we can wheel it out from the storage closet and listen to records like old folks and then wheel it back in when we are done.
Kevin would like to point out that these are indeed my records and not his.  But who doesn't love a little Culture Club on occasion?

Currently he is working on garage cabinets for all of his hiking and climbing gear.  There is also talk of a kitchen bookcase to hold all of our cookbooks. I am very proud of his ability to make these things but also how he will read and study just the right way to do them and then actually take the time to do them correctly.  Those of you who grew up in households where people knew how to make things might not think this is any big deal but I did not grow up in such a household so I think this is extremely cool.  He never ceases to amaze me with what he is capable of and with his interest in learning.  But if we could do something about the dust in the garage....

Does Kevin do commissions? I have two minor woodworking projects, but no power saw and I am too lazy to use a hand saw...

Those are gorgeous! I come from a family of woodworking men, but I'm still impressed... : )
