My young boy came to me the other day,

and indicated he wanted to have his very own bread board.
.
.

I thought about gluing up several pieces of walnut and cherry and spruce and babinga,

.... but I didn’t.

I thought about routing a groove around the outside and a hole for a handle,

..... but, I didn’t.

Then, I thought about having a live edge – oooh, and a maple string rolling across the grain,

but, .... I didn’t.

and then, I thought about, making a bunch of little squares and gluing them up into a dizzy pattern,

.. meh.

I almost wanted to use foreign exotic woods with incredible colors and grains that ripple in the light!

... didn’t do that neither.

.

Instead, I thought about what my young boy would like.

.
.

I mean, after all, it’s not about me showing off my woodworking skills, .... right?

.

It’s about making something practical that you can use.

.

Something you can wash off really, really good too.

.

And, It’s about what he wants … right?
.
.
.
.

Peanut butter! .... he says with those puppy dog eyes.

.

.

you missed a spot

.

..... it’s all good.

.
.

Life can be so simple,

.... especially with peanut butter on it.

He looks like he is just fine without the fancy wood and design. Looks like he would put he’ll own his own design into it using the claw and tooth router bits.

You know, in the short time I’ve been a member here, I’ve found lots of cool projects—and this may very well be my favorite—but realize many of them are a little above my pay grade in terms of tools and experience.

BUT …

What I think I enjoy most about this site, aside from the motivation and education, are the stories that go with these projects; the inspirations ideas; the planning; the mistakes; the successes.

Which is why I love this project. Anything that makes the dog happy makes for a good day!

Have your say...
