A slight twist on the Kase Chair I built it for a charity donation. I kept to the simple construction and leg design. I used hard white maple everywhere and carved a chevron pattern in white laminate on the back. It can be found in the Sketch-up warehouse if you need the model.

Almond milk and a blueberry smoothie

Some would argue that it's just simpler to buy a carton of almond milk at the store. But they've never seen how simple it is to make almond milk at home. It's really not so much effort for a fresher, healthier version. The steps below will look like a lot, but in actuality, they probably take no more than 10 minutes total.
