The family is growing

We just acquired another cookstove. It is in excellent shape for a stove built in 1905, so much so that we couldn’t let it pass. Like we did with our Sweetheart, it’ll sit unused for a couple of years, and we’ll use that time to give it the bit of TLC it needs.

It’s quite beautiful and has many bells and whistles.

Wooden Snake

This is unfortunately not an improvement from my last attempt. The design is barely visible due to my poor choice of facing bark. Still, I’m trying to get better at this every year.
