Dr. Frankenstein

I had a small surgery on Monday, so I've been off my game this week.  I'm starting to feel normal again, and am slowly working my way into the projects I'd planned for the week.

I'm currently Frankenstein-ing (it's a verb) a dresser together for the guest room.  I'm using things left from the previous owners, things I've found on eBay, and paint from good old Home Depot to create my monster - err, masterpiece.  It's turning out really well so far, and I'll hopefully be done later this week and have pictures in hand.

I've got about a thousand other projects on my list right now, but I have a feeling they'll be slowly drawn out through the summer months (and quite possible into the fall/winter knowing my track record).  We'll see how far I get.

On the top of my list is to get a violin specialist to look at my garbage-find violin.  It's 3/4 size and is an E. Martin Sachsen Stradivarius Copy.  Judging from what I've been able to find not the trust interwebs, it may actually be worth restoring.  A friend recommended Potters Violins in Bethesda, so I'm headed there soon to see what it'll take to get this fella in working order.  It's in bad shape now, but isn't it beautiful?
