I think most people enjoy making something out of wood. I can remember way back in high school taking wood shop class. It was one of my favorite classes. For some reason I just love the smell of fresh cut wood. I remember someone bringing in a wooden chair and wanted it repaired. I took the job and took the entire chair apart. I cleaned up all the glue, sanded it and put it back together. Then I refinished the wooden chair and it looked really good. A few days later the teacher called me up to the front of the room. I thought I was in trouble for something. Well to my surprise the teacher handed me a check for a certain amount of money. He said the person was so happy with my work that he wanted to pay me. I think that was one of my most favorite times in high school.
Have you ever wanted to make just a simple wooden box to put some of your favorite items in. I like to have something like that to put my ham radio gadgets, connectors and wire in. One of the wooden projects I have always wanted to build is a jewelry in. Of course I don't have a lot of jewelry, but I have some of those things that belonged to my Grandfather and Stepfather. I guess you might call it a keepsake box. Wooden projects don't have to be small either. You may want to build a hope chest for your daughter or just a wooden chest to put blankets in at the end of your bed. There are thousands of different wooden projects that you can build.
