Winter camping/ski trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of northern Minnesota

Here are a few photos from a winter camping and cross country ski trip with a friend to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area near Ely, MN. We had some lovely weather aside from every lake having a layer of slush to ski through and it was a unique experience for me as my first trip the the BWCA. Luckily we had a packed trail from dog sled teams to carry us over the slush for most of the skiing.

Fall Woodworking Update

Here are a few project updates for my new woodworking projects this year. I tried to make a few new ideas including a burning log lamp and wood sided bags. I hope you enjoy the update!

This is a Shou Sugi Ban charred cedar breakfast table with white pine trim and metal hairpin legs. Shou Sugi Ban is a Japanese style of wood finishing involving charring cedar wood planks in order to protect the wood from insects, weather, and fire and providing a unique dark look to the wood which contrasts nicely with the light pine surround.
