Has it really been 35 years since I made my first wooden box??? Damn I must be getting old. Still a proponent of growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional!!! :)
Do you remember your first woodworking project??? I do and I still have it. I was an avid stamp collector back in the day so I decided to decoupage stamps all over my box. Each stamp had meaning as the bicentennial was happening. the three space stamps were added because space exploration was still a new and novel thing and I loved looking at astronomy books. I added the Yellowstone stamp because that is one of my favorite places on the planet. Some of the others I added because they looked “cool” or were just pretty old… kind of like me now!!! :O
Now that I look at the box I realize I needed to do a bit more sanding mainly because I see pencil marks and stain drippings on the inside. Oh well… not bad for an 11 year old kid!!!
