It's Log! Everyone Wants a Log. Sing-along at the end.

My son and I went to the "log" store where we get our wood for making our items.  As we were loading up our logs into the back of the car, we spotted this big, lovely, beautiful piece of wood that we both had to have. This thing is a monster. It must weigh about 20+ pounds.

We took it home and my son sanded it. It is so smooth, it feels soft. I have no idea what we are going to make out of it or use it for, but we ended up bringing it in the house and used it as a footrest. It is so smooth, it feels really good on the feet. It is still natural without stain or topcoat, but I am thinking it might not need any, did I mention how smooth it is? 

Well, as of right now, I am keeping it as a foot rest unless we can think of a better idea. If you have any, I would love to hear them! :)

As the song goes, (Please feel free to sing along):

What rolls down stairs alone or in pairs,
Rolls over your neighbor's dog?
What's great for a snack and fits on your back?
It's Log, Log, Log!
It's Log, Log, it's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
It's Log, Log, it's better than bad, it's good!
Everyone wants a log! You're gonna love it, Log!
Come on and get your log! Everyone needs a Log!

O my god, your log song is awesome. Love the look of your blog and also LOVE that you got your son to sand the wood for you! I'll have to start training my own son. He's 3!

My son loves it and he actually got me into it. I was supervising him and hanging out with him and then I tried to make a few things and fell in love with this. For a lady who had never held a power tool before January of this year, to a lady who drools over is a lot of fun. :)

I agree with Miri -that's awesome to get your son involved! You could use the piece of wood it as a small side table, just attach two legs, use it for something decorative.

Nice to see the younger generation getting involved in crafts - mine are finally getting round to it and they're in their late thirties/forties! Better late than never, so don't try too hard to get yours involved too early. They won't stick at it!

Dropping by as a fellow member of the Misanthropycreations blog team. Am following you, so please return the favour at Look forward to seeing you there sometime soon. Isobel

Hi Isobel,
My son really enjoys it and he actually got me started. I had so much fun, we ended up starting this business. He does get bored and will run off to do something else, but that's ok. He can be a kid and play and ride his bike and I can work and play with the power tools! haha
