Eventhough I complain about my family. I do love them. They can be a lot of laugh sometimes. Anyways I miss them already. It was nice to spend some time with them.

So I've been away for the past ten days in San Leandro, California hanging out with my family. My little sister had her graduation from San Leandro High School on June 12th. I had to be there for the big day. I am very proud of her. It was actually a very fun and relaxing trip this time. Ten days was a bit much though. You know how it is with family. Especially a big family. It can get pretty hectic and stressful some times, but it was good to be there for my little sister. The time went by so fast. Would've been nice to spend a little more time with my sister. Anyways here's some pictures.

After hours of BACK BREAKING hard work. The table is finally finished, but not stained yet. It turned out pretty much how I imagined it but there are some technical difficulties along the way and in the end. The table top is made up of 4-3 1/2" wide x 75" long oak boards. It is pretty sturdy except for the legs. The legs are another story. They were suppose to be curved like those fancy antique dining tables except it's flat. The legs were cut from a piece of 8" x 30" oak board. I got 2 legs out of each board. Anyways it was pretty hard to cut them out the same exact size. So the legs are pretty much different sizes. Without the proper equipments you'd just have to wing it. I don't know how the professionals do it. I guess they don't call them professionals for nothing. I also never accounted for the wobble factor. So the legs are a bit wobbly. Oh well I guess you live and learn. Let me know what you think.

I know it's a bit late for St. Patrick's Day, but who could resist a cute little leprechaun outfit for the doggies. Our friends Angelo, Nigel and Niall were in Dublin a couple of weeks ago and got these outfits for Finnegan and Quigley. Now I know they're not Irish cause they came all the way from Texas on a plane no less, but with names like Finnegan and Quigley. They might as well be. We'll se how many times they will put it on before they get a hold of it and rip it apart. At least we have pictures of them wearing it. Enjoy!

Here's the chair that I re-upholstered. It turned out pretty good I think. A bit too orange, but I think it gives the room a bit of a kick with the bright color. The only worry it that the fabric is a thin cotton so it won't be hardwearing. I might have to replace it in a couple of months. Oh well. I'll probably get sick of it anyways. That's it for now. Next is the desk for the studio!
