Hi, so, apparently all simple projects are tailored to kitting out your woodshop which is of course nice and friendly but I thought I would make a list of things that I would like to make for other parts of the house so that I don’t forget. And maybe you, dear reader, will find something that catches your fancy as well.

1 – Boxes. For dovetail practice. 1a. Medium boxes. Doll trunks. Dolls need trunks, it is true. For example, the School Box from the Joiner & Cabinet maker would be wonderful for a doll and its wardrobe. A nice thing is to fit the doll bed inside the trunk. Another beautiful and simple thing to do would be to paint a screen with scenery for said doll. Also many doll chests have mirrors and closets in them. And then also keepsake boxes for each of the children. A personalised wooden box with a lock is something you will keep your whole life, amirite? And toy chests really are always in fashion.

1b. Smaller boxes. Often discussed as chisel boxes or tool caddies. I think I could use art-supply caddies, sewing tool caddies (ooh, ones that fit in the drawer of the sewing desk, or precisely on the sewing shelves would be awesome), what else oh yes small boxes to hold my stupid electronics cables and hey maybe even lend some distinction to my charging solutions?

2. – Shelves. For dado practice.

2a. One million spice racks. And omg customised solutions for those stupid spaces in the kitchen.

2b. Small display shelves for children to show their treasures. I have one my dad built for me 50 years ago. Upside down of course, but I still love and use it and think of him.

3. – Stools and small furniture. For mortise & tenon practice

3a. Small stepstool/sit stool. Lightweight, easy to move, pretty.

I’m sure I have more and will add to them.

-- Building stuff with my kids sometimes. Pretty new to woodworking, I mostly sew...
