Projects for 2006

2006 looks like it may be full of woodworking projects. That's cool... I like building stuff... Here are a few I have planned.... 1. Paint and install molding around the bathroom we redid... I bought the moulding this past weekend, but I think I may buy a nail gun before I install it. Yay! New tools! I love that.... 2. Buy, paint and install moulding in the dining room. 3. This will be the biggest project by far- Turn what is now an office/junk room into an office/scrapbooking/craft room. I need to design & build what will hopefully be around the room countertops with shelving for everything from scrapbooking paper to computer printers to paperclips... This room will hopefully come together sometime this year... I am itching to get started on it... I will also need shelving around the top for my wife's massive Barbie collection... I think we decided to go with some kind of pop-culture theme that I will need to work with too... should be fun. 4. Build a router table. I have plans for a very cool one, just haven't gotten around to it yet. 5. Possibly start building benches to sell. 6. Improve both the oragnization and functionality of my garage/workshop. I made a good start on this Monday while I was off of work... I finally got the garage mostly clean and I have some new spaces to work (no more cutting everything on the floor!) Now I just need to keep it that way. 7. Oops... can't say... There may be presents involved for some people who may read my blog... (or maybe not, I can't say either way) Anyway... I have a busy year in the garage ahead of me... Hopefully I can get to a good portion of these things... And hopefully my collection of tools grows in the process. So... If you need me... check the garage... You'll probably find me there with sawdust flying....

2006 is going to be a very busy "building" year for you! WOW! Alot on the wish list there, but you can get it done. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures... in progress and done! Especially of the renovated Office/Scrapbooking room.... it sounds like it is going to be awesome!

Guppy) Definetly go for the nail gun..compressor etc. I've been a woodworker for years (used to be my living)and I wouldn't be without them. Get two. One to handle brads up to 2" and a finisher.

Hope it goes well, and not too many bruised fingers in the process. Looking forward to a great blogging 2006. God be with you, guppy.

8) Turn the alcove in Miteymite's office into shelving with doors so she can put all her Christmas stuff there & not try to deal with $%#$%! totes.

Have fun with that. My husband is always covered in sawdust but that has been that way for 20 years now :)

Presents, did someone say presents? I don't want you feel sorry for me or anything but because my birthday is the day before Christmas I get "jack" as far as presents are concerned. Please, please.. I see that tear in your eye, it is OK, I am used to it. lol Just kidding.

But I do want to get with you later and pick you brain. I am moving into a new house and one of the rooms is unfinished and I need some ideas on how to fix it up. It is a room over the garage and I have already given it a name, "Man Land." Guns, deer heads, big screen TV, you get the picture. Any way when I get ready to finish it I thought I would hook up with you and see what kind of ideas you had. If you don't mind, that is.
