Well, being pressured with leaving for the weekend. I decided today, (Thursday) I would try and make 100 craft kits… 50 Gumball “Machines” Which many of you have seen.. as well as 50 “Finger Basketball” kits. After spending an hour or two running around to various stores picking up the needed materials, I only got started on them at 4:30 P.M.

A few hours later, that same day, I came out with this..

Nothing special… but just thought I would share with you all, for those of you who care! :)

Kudos to you!

I often get into the shop in the

early 3-4am and can get so much

more done then when there is no

one around.

What a productive woodworker (and very organized)! Great! Thanks for sharing. This post is very inspiring.
