Well when I first got into woodworking about a year ago, I thought that cutting boards would be a good way to learn basic woodworking techniques – Milling lumber, glue-ups, sanding, routing. It certainly has.

I also figured after a few months of making them, I’d be sick of them and graduate to better things.

So, was I right?

Seltzer Water has always helped me.
But sometimes you just gotta go with what the little Muse tells you what to do.

That is an impressive collection. Well done.

Thanks steve :)

THey are not all finished yet, which is why i posted it here. The bottom ones need to be routed and sealed. I just saw all of them sitting there and thought it was a good photo op.

You have and still are building those Basic Skills that you will use as you expand your woodworking horizons.

Just by adding an apron, legs and maybe a drawer to a couple of your designs would yeild a great little side table.

Keep pushing the envelope and your skills and you will never become bored with woodworking.

Work Safely and have Fun. Len
