Savla’s Home Office.

Savla has been working on getting her businesses going lately and we have had to move the computer out to the dining room. This has left her with very little space to work, and keep things organized.  Se drew out a rough drawing of the custom desk she wanted and I built this. There will be additions to the “Home Office” like a monitor riser and printer stand to put paper under.

Here is the desk as Phase 1:

Desk

The desk is almost entirely made of pine plywood and pine 1×2. I first put on a layer of a Natural Danish Oil to harden the soft pine. Then I waited the 72 hours and added several coats of a flat Varathane water based polyurethane over the next couple of days to protect it. I really like the way the finish came out.

Wildlife Photography Attempt

I borrowed a lens from work (Canon EF 70-200mm 1:2.8) to shoot Mykah’s volleyball game.  Having the lens until Monday I thought we (Mykah, Canyon and I) should go out and shoot some pictures of some birds out at Oso Flaco Lake where at some point last year the family went out and saw a lot of cool larger birds.

This must have been a different season because we saw mostly ducks.

Here are the best of the pics from the trip.

We also ran into these guys…  a family of  3 raccoons out on a walk. This last one is me and my second assistant out in the field.adamandCanyon
