Abbie’s Homemade Bunny Puzzle for Christmas

This is one of my little girl Abbie’s Christmas presents. I finished it yesterday. I slipped and cut my finger and nail on the scrollsaw blade…my first bad cut. I hope she likes it. It’s darn near unbreakable because the wood I chose, Makore, is so dense. I finished it with linseed oil.

Growing Playlists of Videos On Our YouTube Channel

I’ve been gathering onto our YouTube channel a great selection of homestead-related videos from across the YouTube world. I realize one can search directly on YouTube for these. However, I find it easier to have many of them on one site…thus our YouTube channel. Eventually, I will be uploading some homemade videos too.

So far, I have selected over 120 videos. Here are the playlists on the channel so far.
