Not sure if it was the first wood-project I made but its the earliest that I can remember. I don’t even recall if it was when I actually was at summer camp or if it was a craft day or something that we attended at camp. Oh well , I guess it does not really matter right now.

But we spent a half day or so in a class where we built small reproductions of our cabins. Each cabin was named after a tree species. Ours was walnut. I still have that little model. Its made out of plywood and stained. The roof lifts off and reveals a storage area inside. Guess its probably over 40 years old . Guess I was about 14 years old at the time. :0)

The window frames are grooved and are actually designed to put photographs in . I sort of forgot I still had this thing floating around. It has gotten a bit damaged over time but still is in pretty good shape. Just needs to be cleaned up. It suppose it has a bit of sentimental value as I have managed to keep it all these years somehow.

I love to hang on to all of those memories and momentos. I have fond memories of camp as well and we did some craftwork as well. BTW, I just noticed that your a newbie – so am I. I bet that you’ve found out that Lumberjocks is a great place for woodworkers also.
