Crazy Sacramento weather

The weather has changed instantly from highs in the 90s to highs in the 60s. I'm glad it's cooled off, now I can spend whole days working in the garage instead of just a few hours in the morning. Although I don't know why it has to be so sudden and drastic.

Now that it has cooled off so much, it looks like I'll be wanting to have fires again soon. Checking over the fireplace I realized I need a nice little stool to sit on that I will be low enough to peer into the fireplace while I stack wood in, poke at, and get lit.

The hole in the center makes it real easy to pick up. I made the whole thing with some 9/16" cabinet grade plywood I found on scavenge day last month. It was a big 4'x4' sheet, but it had been apparently allowed to get wet and the laminations had separated in one area. Whatever, free wood is free wood, and I knew I'd find a good use for such good quality plywood.
