so after basically only doing shop projects, minus a few cutting boards I am ready to begin do a couple real projects…

I have about 4 things lined up that I’m about to begin.

1. chess board for one of my co workers… going to make the squares from walnut and maple and the base will be alder. I watched steve Ramsey’s video on his chess board and I love how he finished it. so I’m going to attempt to do that,

2. I want to make a greene and greene style frame, from the WW guild. I’ll make at least 2 of them, one for my parents, I’ll put a mirror in it and then I’m going to out a picture of my best friend who recently died in a car accident and send that to his parents. I’m sure they will love it.

3. will be the hanging candle holders steve Ramsey just did his most recent video on. I love how they look and I’m sure my parents will dig them. I ma also etch or burn a Roman numeral 3 in a set and give them to my late friends parents also. as he was the III and had that tattooed on his chest.

4. I ordered a bunch of random cutoffs and I’m planning on glueing them up and slicing them down to make coasters… I’ll probably burn a Roman numeral 3 on each 1 and give them to a few of my buddies as we were all very close friends since teenagers. 17+ years. well see how they turn out, I’ll probably also design and build some sort of little holder for them and give them out as a cool little set

so, that’s what I got planned, I’m sure things will pop up in between and I may not be able to get to something right away. (I need to build a rolling stand for my planer, still sitting on the floor)

Good luck on the projects. I completed the Mr Ramsey chess board in January, it took me a long time, but your skill set is probably higher than mine is. If you want to read about some of the things I ran into which I did not foresee, then you can check out the interesting parts in my blog which start here
