After receiving the Ridgid table saw for Christmas, I knew I wanted to create something special for my parents. You can check out the blog post here describing the table saw gift! I decided to make them a cutting board from walnut, padauk, and purpleheart. I have three kids, so I wanted three stripes in the board to symbolize my parent's grandchildren!
In February 2016, 2017, and 2018, I've been fortunate enough to be a part of a medical/construction mission team that traveled to Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua.
Puerto Cabezas (Port) is a beautiful place, full of some of the most amazing people I've ever met. Their smiles, kindness, hard work, resilience, and general love for life is something that I'll always keep close. During our time there though, between medical clinics and other travel, I was able to check out some of their wood work and their wood shop.
