I took a woodworking class for my 41st birthday and made this wonderful Adirondack chair. That was, hmm, several years ago, and eventually the wood started to rot. I couldn’t see throwing out all that decent wood, when it still had some life to it and special memories.
So my husband and I made a couple of birdhouses out of it. Now, the chair lives on, and the chickadees and wrens that nest in our other houses have a new home.
