Here are some more quarantine projects. All are small projects that I have been shoving to the back of my workbench.

2. A small wren house using some crown molding samples I’ve had for ages. My daughter has already claimed this.

3. A support base for a brick from my recently demolished high school. Present for my brother.

4. A simple coat rack. The hooks came from the first school at which I taught fifty years ago. I liberated them on the last day of school before it was decommissioned.

5. Wren house made from the remains of my mail box post. It was destroyed by the snow plow on the only time my street was plowed this winter. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

6. Sapele book marks. When ever I do a woodworking project I make a few bookmarks from the scraps. I drop them off at my local library and they give them out.

Your daughters bird house is down right cool. I’m thinking those school projects must hold a lot of sentimental value for you.

Bird house is beautiful. I really like the idea of the book marks. How big are they?

JCamp The bookmarks can be any length you like. These are seven inches long. This size works well with both paperbacks or hardback books.
