This is a simple DIY Woodworking/Decor Project for Justin's Man Cave. Can you call it decor if it's going in the Man Cave? Just doesn't seem to fit. Well, the hubby does have a Man Cave and it's the one room in the house that I have NO say over. In fact, he's given Gauge a lifetime entry pass and I still have to ask for permission to go in there! But then again, who wouldn't give a sweet little face like this a lifetime pass?
Here is is after it's cut off...imperfection was the desired result, which meant it didn't have to be cut perfectly (an excuse not be perfect...my favorite!).
pile of wood. Momma don't pass up free wood, so we have a fairly large supply of this kind of good stuff, compliments of the side of the road, aka...someone's trash = my treasure!
Justin laid it out to see about how big he wanted the frame to be. To get the wood piece into smaller widths, he just broke it by hand...it was fairly cracked to start with and there was a perfect crack down the middle.
The angles for the frame were cut using our compound sliding miter saw (Happy Birthday to Justin, Happy Birthday to Me, Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy Anniversary...those are the events we used to purchase this last year). Next, we simply laid the frame out to get a visual.
Next, the frame was glued into place.
as any man would do, Justin used fire to achieve a burned look on the lighter colored wood using this little guy.
