700 days I’ve been a member here? Holy cow time flies.
So I got back into woodworking a couple years ago thanks to some changed circumstances that forced me to stop doing … well anything really.
I have spent the last year+ being alternately depressed and unable to look at the shed or trying to work on something and getting bummed out and then unable to look at the shed. It has really sucked, I’ve spent a lot of time reading and practicing in my head in the meantime. Thanks to another set of things happening, now I have plenty of free time again to try and figure out if making things is still something I want to try doing.
The cardboard box that was in use at the gym to hold the bar clips (or clamps) was really ratty and the wall was getting marked up from throwing them into the box. Hey maybe this is something I could fix.
For the last week I have been outside for a few hours every day cleaning up and shuffling things around so I could make this box. Nothing special, just some plywood screwed together and given a coat of paint + poly.
Got through the entire project and only made two mistakes which is a new record!
First two pictures are of it in its new home, the last is one a closeup of the picture I copied and put on the front with silver paint pen (it’s Clamps from Futurama).
Thanks for reading down this far (if you indeed have made it) and I hope to be putting some more projects up a bit quicker in the future!
