no previous part Part 1 of 30 Projects in 30 Days series Part 2: Day 1 - Segmented Wine Bottle Stopper - 1/2 & 1/2 Twist »

I enjoyed watching Scottb's 30 projects in 30 days run back in November. I’ve been inspired by his Round II announcement to launch my own 30 projects in 30 days challenge!

I’ve got several bottle stopper blanks prepped and ready to go. I also have a few pens to complete as well. I’m also hoping to get in at least one bigger project, a recent Family Handyman magazine has a rather simple wall shelf that I’d like to make for my daughter’s room.

I’ll be posting available items at my Esty store as I move along through the 30 day challenge.

Wish me luck!

Darryl, this is certainly an ambitious challenge but I have every confidence that you will be able to “turn” out these 30 projects. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of them.

I wish the heck I had the time to do 30 projects in 30 days. I’m doing so much complicated woodworking at work, I don’t have any time to come home and work on my own. I wish you all luck.

Thanks for joining in Darryl! It looks like a few other jocks could probably join in too… I mean Trifern practically posts a new project every day.

So far I’ve only loosely planned out about a third of the projects, and have vague notions for another third. I suppose I can prep more pen blanks if nothing else inspires. Oh yeah, and finally get to Karson 391 pen challenge blank from the pen traders box.

I’ve still gotta re-set up my phototaking area, and then the sawdust will fly.

I think that I am out. Since I don’t turn (can you believe it?) all of my projects take at least two days.

I hope I’m not biting off more than I can chew!
This should be fun and very interesting to watch!

I am a little surprised that you don’t turn Todd, we’ll have to work on that!

Funny you say that, I was thinking the same thing!
