That key rack was cut out and finished all the way back in 1977. My mother dated the piece, I’m guessing it was my first piece that came home from shop class in 7th grade (middle school these days, back then it was k-8 and then high school).

Thanks Ken, I was surprised that she had dated it, but hey, it’s neat if a bit ‘crude’.

Thanks Bro. Steve! It’s been awhile in the making, but it is Finally coming close to a ‘real’ working shop.

Lots of projects in the wings, If I can just get through the chaos of moving in.

Mothers and some Fathers keep everything their kids made and put dates on them. Just like My wife and I.

By the way nice keepsake.

Nice key rack. Now I will have to post my first wood working project. A stool I made in High School in 1966. I still have it.
