I have started this blog to help me follow through with the many projects I have in the works right now. I have been working with wood as a hobbyist for many years and have just begun to experiment with metalworking as well. I find that it is a great stress reliever as these projects help me to exercise my mind and my muscles to figure out how things work and come up with creative solutions to the problems I encounter. I hope to post about individual projects and show my progress as they move from idea to completion.
I am excited as well as a little nervous to step out of my comfort zone to share my progress on my projects, but I believe that it will help me to stay on task and motivated to get things finished. I also hope this will improve my photography skills which are somewhat lacking.
Above is an one of my early projects. It is a pie safe I made for my sister who is an excellent baker. I did not have any plans for this project and made it up as I went along. It lacks a few details I would add in today, but I am happy with my result and the enthusiasm I had for this project.
