I enjoy woodworking in my little shop and I enjoy good food. Especially meat. I love to smoke, grill, barbecue, and use a dutch oven. Combining the two hobbies is great fun! If this sounds like you then follow me on my journey. Let's make something hot and spicy and full of robust flavor and maybe we'll build a table to set it on too. Sound like fun? Then stop in now and then and see whats cookin.

Restoring Gypsy Rose
Connie and I found this old wooden sailboat while out for a drive one day. We have been sailors for many years and have owned 3 different sailboats.
Being woodworkers we immediately saw the potential of how beautiful this boat could be. Having the name Rose as a family name for 4 generations, Connie named the boat Gypsy Rose.
Boy do we ever have a lot of work to do now! The plan is to be finished and sailing her by June.
We will take it in small bites and keep at it until she is done.
Here is the main hatch cover. This is where I have decided to start while Connie gets busy with sanding other parts of the boat.
Check in from time to time to see the progress Connie and I are making on this project.
Please leave your comments because we absolutely love hearing from you.
