I was just wondering how many people did projects in their shop with no plans the only thought is what your making? like a box, but you dont know the size, the wood you just start cutting,clamping and glueing when your done its a work of art. If u have any stories like this please share them with us here on LJ? Pics are even better? I know all if not most of my projects are done with out even thinking, i just wing everything all i know is that i want to make a picture frame, a box or something i need around the house like a step stool that’s it. Then i come up with the wood then if i need it to be a certain size i try to shoot for that size. But the project comes out alright, or after a bunch of adding other stuff to it, it comes out fine. Like i made no mistakes knowing in the back of my mind i made many on that one project. I often show people and tell them all the places i messed up and had to change this or that. I think this is why i ask so many people here on LJ for plans for stuff they made plus i want to put my own twist on it.
