What is your favorite thing to make in the shop and give to someone?

After quickly making up the puzzles(see last week’s blog) for last weekend and playing with making a few more puzzles this week I have come to the conclusion that is what I really enjoy making. They are generally simple to make and with some more practice with the scrollsaw I can make a number of them at once by gang cutting. It was great fun watching my in-laws, nieces and nephews all playing with the game I brought up and trying to solve the puzzle. Simple toys are another one that I really like. My daughter took her truck she and I made to show-n-share last week at school along with some pics of her making it. It was a huge hit. I have been thinking about packaging the pieces to simple little toys and selling them so kids can decorate and assemble them by themselves.

Now of course this does not mean I am not going to continue to work on other projects. I really enjoy pens, and bandsaw boxes and of course the occasional piece of office furniture. But I have the odd feeling that there will be a number of toys, games, and puzzles being made in the next few months as gifts :).

That is about it for this week sorry no pics or anything just some thoughts. Hope you all have a good week and get some shop time.
