    There has been many. Most I do not have anymore. The ex wife either has them or she destroyed them. Here's a few that I have pics of.
    My most ambitious scroll saw project, destroyed.
    woodworking and shop 024.JPG A scroll saw clock, broken but I still have the insert to make another one someday.
    woodworking and shop 019.JPG My first segmented turning all made from scrap wood just to see if I could do it. I still have this one.
    woodworking and shop 053.JPG A better segmented turning. I dont have this one anymore. It was the second segmented turning I did.
    woodworking and shop 057.JPG My favorite black walnut kitchen farm table. She still has it, it wouldn't fit in my house so I left it.
    woodworking and shop 006.JPG first hollowing tool I ever made, stainless steel, curly oak handle. I still have it and cherish it.
    finished hollower 007.JPG finished hollower 008.JPG
    These are just a few of my faves. I know it's more than one but I couldn't choose, lol. I guess if I had to it would be the scroll saw basket. It looked cool and was fun to make.

    How
    do you like that vise? There is a similar one for sale nearby for $110. 360* swivel with metal jaws on other end. Thought about making the treck to look at it. E44FADD7-4CD7-42B2-B1BD-CB24B7DAAC1B.jpeg I

    My favorite is a cherry bookcase I made for my Mom. Completed it a couple of years ago. Joinery was all done by hand, and the raised panels were done with hand planes. Here is a picture of it in place in her living room. It has darkened nicely since this picture was taken.

    Many moons ago, probably my first real wood project, I made a headboard for my bed. I needed one that had a shelf to place things on and was just not finding what I want in the stores so I decided to make one out of 2x6 boards. Came out nice and it is just as sturdy today as it was the day I made it.

    sorry no :foto:

    I can't say I have a favorite. But if I was forced to pick one, it'd be one of my cigar humidors.
    Sorry, no pics.

    No pics because I lost them in a fire years ago. My ex-wife set them on fire.... full of my expensive cigars.
