a stolen idea
I thumbed through a picture book of Canada at a used bookstore recently and fell in love with a French Canadian barn. I thought, I could live in that beauty. I'd make birdhouses and maple syrup all winter and smelly old cheese and comfortable Reitveld chairs all summer.
Then my mind drifted to what was actually possible. I could make birdhouses that would remind me of old barns.
So I made a few sketches, bought a trunk load of lovely barn board - gray on both sides - and went to work in the shop.
