Jacob, when I first started in shop class I was 13. We made a small bench and a shelf, then we were allowed a project of our own, mine was a chess board that I still have.

What ever you chose to do consider doing handyman repair projects around your Mom’s house and friends. Take before and after pictures even if it was simple as fixing a fence or screen door. Ask for little notes of reccommendation from whoever you work for.

Just remember always do your best at whatever you do. That doesn’t mean what you do may look perfect or be right. It just means your did your best at that given point in time. I often come across something I did many years ago like that chess board. Sure I could do much better now than I did 44 years ago. But you know at that point in time what I built was perfect and the best I could have done as everything I have ever done since.

Come back often, you know where we all are, we’ll be glad to help.
