Just a few simple projects I made in the past. The first two are curling iron/hair dryer holders one of which now belongs to my wife and one belongs to my sister. My wife wanted one years ago when the only tools I had were a drill and a jigsaw but I got it done. Hers is the second one shown, with the round loop for the hair dryer. The first one is my sister’s with a closeup of the box in the second pic. I looked them up online when my wife described what she wanted and there were a lot of them, some with shelves on the bottom, but none with boxes, so I made her one with a box to hold all of her hair stuff. My sister saw the pic and wanted one too. The folding basket I made was because my sister and a friend were at my aunt’s house and saw an apple shaped one and wanted one, but wanted it to be shaped like a heart. I thought I could make one with my jigsaw, but it won’t hold a precise enough angle and the kerf was too thick so I bought a scrollsaw and made a couple of these. The base is yellow pine and the basket is red oak. These are fun projects and good to develop skills for a new woodworker.
