I’m feeling pretty euphoric after spending a few days exploring Northern Vermont and Montréal with Megan. I brought my camera. Here are a few of the most magical shots. Enjoy!
Just got home after a lovely trip to Amsterdam with my co-workers at Automattic. I was not able to snap as many photos as I wanted. One night, I left my camera’s battery back at the hotel. Still, here are some of my favorite photos. Enjoy!
First major snowfall at the new abode. It’s what some would call “emergency weather”, but here in Maine we call it “Friday”.
Here are a few photos that I took at Evergreen Cemetery. It has been my happy place this autumn. I’ll go there on mornings for a long walk, catch some Pokemon, and snap some photos with my phone. Maybe I’m just noticing, but the foliage seemed particularly bright and beautiful this year. Enjoy.
Yesterday we visited Fort Williams park to check out the stormy seas delivered by Hurricane Hermine. The storm did not come directly to Maine, but it breezed by a few miles off the coastline. We were surprised to see how many brave ( or stupid ) people were getting close to the edge of the cliffs to enjoy the sea spray. Enjoy the photos and videos.
Today I finished a home-made medicine cabinet / picture frame for our bathroom. Teaching myself basic carpentry skills, and owning a home in general has made me appreciate all the work that goes into building and maintaining our dwellings and infrastructure. Thank you all for working so hard. Enjoy the photos!
This weekend I completed my first furniture design project. Instead of buying the tools for traditional wood joinery I opted to use pocket holes. It is less expensive, and requires less time and patience. I was able to build two nightstands in a week. I haven’t been this excited since I was gifted my first pack of Legos. Pocket hole joinery is like building stuff with wooden Legos that you design! Here’s what I learned.
We need a couple of low sitting night stands for our bedroom, and we haven’t found quite what we are looking for online or IRL. So I’m going to build them. I bought the wood and the Kreg jig, and I’m going to start tomorrow. I’m pretty pumped! Here’s what I made in SketchUp.
