Outdoor Dilemma

Rob-Portrait351Last weekend the mercury rose above 40 degrees in Minnesota where I live, so of course we were all outside (many of us wearing shorts) enjoying the unseasonable warm-up. Wandering around my hilltop domain, I was struck with the woodworking projects that I would need to do once the snow melts, and it was not a short list. Fix the arbor for my grapevines, replace a board on one of my outdoor benches … nothing special.

Which leads me to wonder: what sort of outdoor woodworking projects are on your list? Do you use your woodshop much to “fix up” your back or front yards? Do you have any big projects on your list (gazebos, porch swings, Adirondack chairs … something bigger)?

Let us know what you are thinking, and we will share what we can.
