Candles and a birdhouse…I spent the day in the garage and this is what I came up with… some veneer, cherry, oak, hickory, 1/4 ” plywood, balsa wood, glue nails, small dowel, stain and paint…. basically the best day ever. ..although nothing is all that fancy I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend the day. I’m almost done with my scrap box, so hopefully I have the motivation to tackle my kitchen table project soon… wish me luck because I can’t keep giving candles away… I’m running out of moms and aunts who want them.

Nice projects.
I’d like to paraphrase your signiture line.

The things I make may be for others but the joy of making them is all mine.

This is why a 76 y/o crippled old man spends 5-6 hours every day in his shop, sweating, inhaling saw dust and wiping glue on my shirts. I look a mess but I feel so good.

-- I am going to go stand outside so if anyone asks about me, tell them I'M OUTSTANDING!

Thanks….jim and old wrangler. ...I hope when I’m 76 I can look a mess in my shop too.

Have your say...
