Now that my house is finished (relative term when you live in the jungle), I was able to actually fly in some actually finished lumber instead of having cut down and slab trees. It was freaking amazing to build things with already finished wood! Anywho, these are nothing special, but I'm bored and thought I'd share.

My wife finally got some proper'ish shelving in the pantry...

New home school desk for my three daughters built beneath their loft bed. It's not finished, but getting there...

Been helping one of my Hewa friends build his house...

How do we know there's not a Home Depot and glittery shopping mall on the other side of those trees, Mr. JMG, and you've not just been funnin' us all along?

Seems pretty sketchy to me... hain't nobody chooses to live where spiders are the size of Frisbees.

Fair question...

Hold on...

That would mean that (some, at least) people DO willingly go to sleep every night with dozens of Frisbee-sized spiders on their bedroom ceiling.

Either you are adding an extra layer of gotcha! to your joke, or you are a much manlier man than I. (ditto your wife and daughter)

My wife is way tougher than I am. I've seen some pretty big spiders, but nothing like that one...YIKES! I did kill this snake underneath my house a few months back (I think it's an Easter Brown snake.) Would have been bad to get by him way out there.

Good thing about the spider. It's too big to swallow in your sleep. There's also enough drumsticks to go around.
The house looks good. The lumber is obviously not Home Depot. It's too straight.

I believe that that is a hairy lobster, not a spider. :shock:
