1. Firewood Shelter

My wife Arla and I are going to build this Co-op DIY Firewood Shelter for both our backyard at our Dad's house in town and also at his Cottage at Lac St-Cyr, very near to the fireplaces of each location. I know exactly the perfect spots for them.

2. Miniature Dioramas

For the past year or so I've gotten interested in miniatures, model making, scratch building, and dioramas. A few months ago, I built this Ewoks diorama based on the Little Rebels in the Battle of Endor™ statue made by Kotobukiya that sells for $200. I love the look of it, but to save money I decided to just buy a Bandai AT-ST and 5 or 6 miniature Ewoks from Shapeways. I didn't save that much money, maybe about $30-$40. It was so much fun to make, I want to make more. I'd like to work on more Star Wars dioramas because I love Star Wars, but I'm also interested in making miniature farm dioramas. There's one I'd like to do where some cows are being beamed up by a UFO in a field. I bought some minature cows from Aliexpress, a miniature tractor from Outback Toy Store and a UFO at Shapeways.
