I have always loved the process of designing something on paper; figuring out dimensions, what kind of wood to use, and how to finish the project. I have never regretted taking a joinery pre-app program, and even though I never worked toward my ticket, the skills I learnt have served me well. Valodya and I make a great woodworking team. Sometimes all it takes is for me to show him a picture in a magazine or the Sundance catalogue, and days or weeks later he will present me with his creation.
This latest project was made with scrap wood, recycled dowels, and a water-based finish. The only thing we had to buy was the pulley system.
I love my new clothes airer.
