Rescued flat griddle

Happy with re-seasoning this old rusted griddle.  It's super heavy - like 50 lbs or so.  Great to fry a bunch of stuff over the fire, all at once.

Bits of fix up

The third try at setting up a 'greenhouse' sort of cover for my work space, to keep things relatively dry and less sloppy.  I think the arched roof will succeed in not pooling up the water and crashing apart.

Finally got around to fixing up my 'ax hog log', the chopping block I use with hatchets and such.  It wasn't level, and struggled with the slope of the hillside.

Kitchen Knife Handle project

Getting rid of the plastic in the house, one log at a time.

It's tricky to do this in the right order. Every step can fail - that is, the wood could crack, or the metal might fail, or something... so I'm always holding my breath until I get to the last bit. 


Seems good enough for our kitchen.
