Remembering My First Projects

I started woodworking when I was a kid in the 1970's and I was trying to remember my first woodworking projects today.   These are some of the ones I can remember.

  • I built a birdhouse with my father from a kit with pre-cut boards.

  • I cut a dowel rod into short pieces and stacked them together with glue to make a small log cabin.

  • I built a coat rack using pieces of a 2x4 as the base and a 2x2 as a post.  I attached 4 brass coat hooks at the top.
I'll have to look for those the next time I visit my mom.  I did find the Handy Andy tool kit that my dad gave me and the little blue saw is the only tool left.  I wore that thing out.  Now I keep my soldering iron and supplies in the box.
