If you’re from America you probably don’t known what are junior certificate is. It is when we are in 3rd year of secondary school (14 and 15 year olds) and we have big exams in every subject, you also have a leaving cert in 6th year which basically decides which college you go to. But anyway it is my junior cert year we have been giving our brief for woodwork (a list of 3 possible projects to build for your junior cert. The 3 choices were a sign to welcome someone to a community that has to be elegant in design which I have to say in a bit of a crap choice, a cook book stand that has to have handcrafted joinery and must be able to be wall mounted as well or a wall mounted bedroom storage cabinet made out of solid wood but the dimensions cannot exceed 500mm (50cm). I went for the cabinet I have already started the sketches and thinking of designs, it would be a great help if you could send me a link or PDF you’d suggest. Thanks a bunch.

P.s I have started building an acoustic guitar so if you’re wondering why I haven’t been on lumberjocks it’s because of that but I will try and post pics soon. Also the website has been going ok, generation wood works was a great help I still need to get around to putting my project on his sites, still have made any sales but I hope it will pick up. :)
