    I have a written out list in my shop that has a bunch of projects I'd like to tackle over the next 2 to 3 years. Some larger, some smaller. Not going to type up the whole list, but here's the next projects I'm going to be working on, hoping to complete these in the next few months:

    Nightstand for our boys' room
    Hutch for the kitchen to serve as a place to put the coffee maker and grinder, mix drinks, store wine, etc
    New, smaller dining table
    Keepsake box - 40th wedding anniversary gift for my in-laws, who will be married 40 years in June

    Oh boy, its a long list, more of a bucket list actually. Immediate projects would include making a hand plane storage area in my shop, finishing a over the toilet bathe cabinet that I have been dragging around with me for awhile, installing 3 routers in my table saw outfeed tables, building a new work bench out of a pile of ash that I milled years ago specifically for that purpose, installing all new interior doors and trim in my house, building 3 bookcases for my office. The bucket list includes making a Maloof style rocker, building a boat, a grandfather clock, and I am contemplating making wood countertops for my kitchen when I remodel it. I would also like to do a strip canoe or kayak...............and I'm sure there there is more that is escaping me at the moment.

    A pen for @Bean_counter for the Winter Swap :sorry:

    Assuming I get that done soon, a Maloof Rocker is something I've always wanted to build. I want to try to do some segmented turnings, I think they would pair well with my cutting boards. Tony

    Kind of an eclectic mix—
    Thinking of turning some lamp bases and bodies— have some gnarly and nice pieces that should look good. Need to use the hollowing setup, have some requests for urns and vases & a good idea to have an urn or two available. Have some ideas for clock faces too— not seen very many turned ones— may find out why.:wacko:
    Oh— and cut more wood for trades or sales. Need to make room, have some more really BIG ‘“Skeet and Pecan coming.:good2:
    Edit— finish the add-on to the side of my shop— about 8 x 40— really need the storage for slabs and other stuff— a learn as I go— assembling and placing the joists (rafters) now.

    Finish the kitchen stools I promised my wife 3, no 4 years ago. But first -

    Learn to make boxes
    Learn to make dovetails/splines for the boxes
    Learn to build tables
    Learn the best joinery for the legs on tables
    Learn how to turn finials to put on the hollow forms I want to learn to make
    Learn to cast "worthless wood" blanks
    Learn to double dye stabilized blanks

    Before all of that I need to run the ducts for the dust collection system, once I figure out how I want to configure the shop.

    The list is long but here are a few things;

    Build a lean-to on the side of my shop (don't know how so saving up to hire someone or I'll just figure it out)
    Learn to embellish some turnings with carvings
    Process a bunch of black locust and elm when it warms up
    Build a kiln when I can find a free (broken) freezer
    Sort through my smaller wood pieces and see if there is anything I don't need (not likely)
    Go to @Mike1950 's and clean up his side yard with help from the Vet's garage when it warms up
    Finish a hollow form I started five months ago
    Clean out and organize the drawers in my shop
    Insulate the shop floor (my shop is a 12x16 shed)
    Get rid of the skunks that moved back in under the shop
    Hand the electric heater permanently so its not taking up space on my table saw
    Put the drill press on a mobile base
    Build a couple keepsake boxes, do something other than turning once in a while.

    Yarn bowls. Already started some, hope they work out OK.

    I'm going to try some toys, see how those go. The kind of toys like the ones at ToyMakingPlans.com.

    I've a jewelry box prototype that I'd like to get around to actually making.

    And more stuff after that. :)

    Dude,
    I'm a darn excellent very talented woodturner & I'm very sure turning a Texas shaped bowl turned on a lathe is dang near impossible! Remind me to give you one of these, :punish: when I see you at SWAT in August!!
