"J" - I have loved making different kinds of craft items since I was a child. I appreciate so much fellow makers who have taken the time to give video instructions on how to make so many different items. I have learned so much from them. Of all the the craft items I have made over the years, I have to say basket making is my favorite!
"B" - Some of the items I have made from wood over the years are a twin bed with a shelf headboard and drawers underneath (that was a challenge!), a bookcase, an outside plant box, a bedroom nightstand, shoe shine boxes (yes, there are some of us guys who still shine our dress shoes!), and jewelry boxes. Other items I have made on the lathe are small decorative trinket containers, Christmas ornaments and snowmen. My dream as far as all things wood is to someday make a guitar! I too appreciate those who have published wood working instructional videos and all I have learned from them.
"J" and "B"- As you can see from the photo, we have a wonderful dachshund named Max whom we love greatly and who brings joy and comfort to us daily!
