    Thank you for giving these projects free. I don’t have a lot of extra money so these help me have something to do.

    I haven’t done any woodworking in a long time, but I am hoping to be well enough to try some (at least one) of your projects soon. Daddy was a master craftsman when it came to wood, building cabinets, furniture, toys, you name it. It’s in my blood but not nearly so much in my mind. I can make simple things without a pattern due to my Daddy and my added love of geometry (although most forgotten). So, thank you for the info and possibility of fun projects.

    Just started woodworking. And like any 80 yr old, I find it very helpful way to keep my mind busy. Love small items.

    I love “scrap” projects like these on chilly mornings with hot coffee. They relax me. While doing them, ideas always pop into mind about more entailed projects. I do this on Sunday mornings while watching the sun come up with my son.

    Why not do what I do and make wooden toys? I reach out to woodworkers for their scrap and make toys to donate to the local hospitals and to special education classes. I also donate the scrap to an art teacher so the kids can make sculptures. It is amazing what the kids come up with, from airplanes to animals to something resembling Picasso works.

    I would love to learn how to make all the beautiful items displayed on this and more.
