My very first projects

Zoom Pictures

I figured I should upload a few pictures of my very first projects, they are all tables. I started making tables with my dads direction when I was 17 years old (5 years ago). The first picture is my very first real project in the shop and was built as a high school shop project, but I built it at home after because I didn’t have adequate time on the tools at school. the others are tables I completed after that, got addicted to wood working.





I figured I might as well be predictable and throw my first book case in as well:

That is nice work no matter which project it is…..very nice joinery. It is sad to hear that the schools are getting worse about shop time. I like sports, but I think the schools are becoming too immersed in them rather then academics and the arts (both industrial and fine). We are paying the same amount of taxes as they did in the days where the schools had shops that rivaled any commercial one – Glad to see that you are still gaining excellent skills at home….No matter what you end up doing in your life….skills like these are always good to have…Great job!

Those are real nice for some of the first ones. My firsrt one was a bread box made a long time ago, holly crap 26 years ago, my Mom still uses it. It’s an addiction that will last a long time to come.

One of the greatest pleasures in the world is a father and son working together at something they both enjoy! Beautiful work.

Good job. I love the bookcase! And the tile-topped table. Did you keep them all for yourself? I expect it won’t be long before you are designing original pieces and testing all your liimits. Keep us informed!
