    What type of projects do you build? And what is your favorite type to make?







    The Question Of The Week series will be going on hiatus for a few weeks. Starting with the last week of June and returning the last week of September.
    Thank you all for taking the time to follow along every week and post up your answers.
    I look forward to seeing you all again Sunday mornings in 13 weeks.
    Cheers....

    Mainly round things and sometimes I have an idea and other times I just throw a chunk of wood on the lathe and let it become what it wants to be.

    I do a little bit of everything or I get bored. I sometimes like to just do simple projects like cutting boards, then I'll do a major project that takes much more time like a scroll saw fretwork project. I like to do turnings in between bigger projects to give me a break from them. I don't actually have a single style or type of project that I excel at or call my mainstay, I have to do a lot of different types of things to stay interested or I get bored. Lets say if I am working on a major fretwork project and its taking a long time, I sometimes will throw a chunk of wood on the lathe just to give me a break from the main project, then when I get back to the project it feels fresh again. Variety is the spice of wood working for me.

    I started out with wood turning, but lately I have been doing a little flat work . (honey due projects) I really like working on the CNC, because it really isn't manual labor.:old:

    I pretty much make whatever we (wife..lol) needs around the house. Boxes have always been my favorites so they tend to get made for gifts around Christmas.

    Easy/hard question-
    Of late my projects revolve around the lathes (a pun there..), but will work on/make whatever is needed. I have the tools..... just not always the inclination.

    Houses! I like to design and build houses with lots of wood inside. Stairways, built in things, wooden walls, wooden ceilings, But lately my old body has forced me to think small. Now it is small wooden projects like furniture and pens and such. However, I currently have a stone house under construction in Jamaica! Well, my son does, and he sends me down to supervise it. In it I will build some neat things: a circular stairway attached to a round stone column, cabinets, built in closets... I am dreaming about a gazebo on a big rock outcroping on a cliff in West Virginia. And maybe a post and beam garage in WV. And maybe some remodeling projects on the beach in Connecticut. Oops, I should get realistic and think small, right?

    Don't ask Lee such things cause the @Spinartist will show you things made from wood that you might not want to see!
