Some of my first projects. The scroll saw table was the very first one that was made in about an hour, with the exception of the top. The top was made with scrap 2×4s glued together and planed. I needed a stool to fit the saw table, so I glued some more 2×4s together and a friend planed them down for me. It also doubles as a work bench at times, and seems seems strong enough to set my truck on it. The “B”, for my grand-daughter, took me a couple of tries to get it right The mallet. Not perfect by any standards, but I made it to use, not to look at. Then there is the quarter pounder with cheese and no onion, as I call it. I even cut a small a small block shaped to look like a triangle of cheese that is on top of the hammer part that pounds the glued on quarter.
All of them have imperfections, but with each one I learned a lot that will carry on to the future projects. Every piece is made from recycled wood, and made with a very limited tools.
