OK, so I signed up, now what? Not sure where this community will take me, but am willing to go for the ride.

Between jobs, so working a bit most days in the shop, some kids projects, some for my wife, and yes, some for me. Finished a wooden mallet yesterday, design from FWW, will try and post photo, but it looks like a wooden mallet. Other projects underway, refinishing a small cabinet for a friend, refinishing the kitchen cabinets, and looking for stool designs. Tired of standing all day.

Christmas coming, finished some folding stools out of white oak for the kids. Look nice, hope they take them to summer camp next year.

Well, enough for a first blog, will see if I can get this posted. cheers.

Welcome! I find that I don’t post a whole lot of things to the completed projects section. I do duck over there occasionally for inspiration, but I generally stick to the blogs and forums.

Be interested in seeing the design you used for the folding stools! We both camp and have a tiny house, so convertible furniture is a specific interest.
