I want to build someday a German Tallcase Clock with a 9 Tubular chime movement. It will chime on tubes instead of rods. This will be my last clock I build which will be 15 and will be for me instead of selling them.

no power power tools of any kind....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I'd love to reproduce a Roentgen piece like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC5Hqk7wl7U but they are well beyond my skill set. Seriously, I had an idea years ago about building a dining table that would be a glass top supported on 4 curved arms from a central hand carved base and pedestal. Maybe one day yet.
BernieW, Semipro and Cricket like this.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

My dream is to one day build a tiny house.

I have been looking at workshops that I would love to attend later this year.

I think I've built the only 2 things that I could ever dream about building. My kitchen cabinets and my shop. If you could go back 10 years and tell me that I would one day build kitchen cabinets, and a work shop, on my own, I would have had to put away!! ;o) Neither one is fancy, but I can't help to be proud of how they (and other things) have come out.

Want: a Morris Chair. It's on my personal Mt. Rushmore.

Need: a new shop. I'd like a bigger shop, but I'd settle for one the same size that isn't falling apart.

I would like to make a rustic pirate's treasure chest. Have not found one that I like recently but have seen it online in the past. I am patient, it will come.

Those are some pretty nice projects posted above.

Cheers!!!
