I haven’t done anything I’d consider complex yet, but each project has been challenging. And I have a ken for the simple yet functional side of things, which probably explains why I gravitate to Shaker, or Shaker-inspired projects.

So when I saw this blog post from Woodworker’s Journal in my inbox, I had to check it out. This quote pretty much sums it up for me:

”... less complex projects can be just as gratifying if you put your heart into them. Simple things done well feel pretty darn good at the end of the day.”

Check it out here.

I agree. When I was a chef my philosophy was what doesn’t a dish need to taste good? Worked for many that had to add this and that. Woodworking is similar, for me I like shaker and other simple styles the best.

I tend to agree with you Dave. I just posted the simplest project yet, and looked down the page and there you were making the point.
