Who is this man sanding a log from the apple tree, I wondered as I watched Jon this afternoon.
Ever since Mike cut up the branch that broke off the tree this summer Jon has talked about taking one of the logs into his study to use as a little table.
Today he decided it was dry enough.
I helped a bit, moving the log onto the porch with the hand truck, and getting the right sandpaper and polyurethane. Jon did the rest. I know this is the first time he’s ever used a palm sander. It was kind of weird seeing him out on the porch with a power tool.
But also impressive.
Tomorrow Jon will give the stump another coat of poly and when it dries we’ll move it into his study.
