« Part 8: Another year in the books Part 9 of Year Book - Sras series Part 10: Ten years have gone by--- »

My yearbook entries are done on Halloween – some years it is between handing out candy and other years are like this year… no visitors :)

I managed to get 3 projects posted this year. They all had a common theme – gifts for the grandkids. They were a box of rattles , a bug house , and a set of cars .

I’m already working on this year’s Christmas gifts. I also am working on a finale for the set of cars – still in the design stage.

3 project postings is better than last year’s 2 posting. The year before was one. That implies I’ll get 4 projects posted by this time next year – we’ll see.

I continue to check in every day and enjoy seeing everyone’s work.

Now on to year 10!

Sometimes life gets in the way of woodworking. I completely understand but one project or ten, yours are always interesting and worth the look.
Bon anniversaire!

Thanks Paul! I’ve got lots of stuff going on in the shop – so much that I forget to make time to create the project posts!

Glad to meet you on Lumberjocks and hope to see your ongoing projects!

That’s the great thing about LJ’s—- even if we’re not cranking out projects every week, there’s always inspiration and someone’s projects to follow.
Here’s to a great November!

Thanks for the comments! I appreciate them.

htl – the kitchen gadget was a gift for my niece. After we gave it to her she moved and has been in England for several years and we are finally going to ship it to her.

Great projects Steve and great to see that you are continuing are staying with LJ through the years. I’ve always enjoyed your comments, posts and excellent work and I look forward to seeing more in the future. It is always great to share the pleasure fellow woodworkers get from their projects.
