Projects completed between 1986-89. This is a sample of fun little projects a person can do without a lot of tools or wood required.

The truck is Woodsmith project and was a gift for my Dad for 25 years of safe driving with UPS (he retired with 35 years safe driving.)

The plaque honors my brothers first deer slain with a bow.

The in/out box is a Woodsmith project of oak with walnut dovetail inserts.

The simple plane was gift for a friend’s kid.

The shaker pegboard is handy for hanging coats. Turn the knobs on a lather or buy them; I’ve done both.

Those look great Dusty!

Question: Do you go strictly by the plan or do you ad-lib some to make it more personal?

Back then I ad-libbed less. Now, I feel free to modify as it suits my needs or vision for the project.
