I've been off for a month or so busy with life. It has been a productive winter, as I had hoped for. I quit smoking, so I've quadrupled my time in the shop. I built cabinets, sliding shelves, two foot stools, a coffee table, several boxes, several types of jigs and more. I've got some of those projects on my profile. I'm proud of the coffee table and the Osage Orange/Mexican Mahogany box the most.
I've got a long "request list" from family members already - mom wants me to make her an end table MIL wants me to make her a small cabinet, going to make boxes for the men for Christmas. I'm also in the development stage for making a something like a suitcase for members of my German speaking cultural group. Since our group is international, and our members travel a lot, I want to make sort of like a briefcase that will fit all of the specific stuff we need for our meetings. Kind of like an "on the go, meeting caddy" or somethign along those lines.
