Default first two projects!

nothing fancy - just excited to get the first two projects together and have them look halfway decent! As much stuff as I have done over the years from cars to bikes, house remodeling, plumbing etc etc etc I have never done any detailed wood work. So here it is - my first time using a router!

Nothing perfect about each piece, but that will come with time!

The first is a place for my little girl to hang her jacket that she can reach (not quite 4 years yet!) Made out of a left over MDF shelf from last year. (pardon the lack of paint on one wall - we can't seem to pick a color, so primer over old color it is)

The other is a picture frame for my wonderful wife who let me splurge on a table saw, router, router table, bits, etc. Red oak.

like I said, nothing fancy - still feel proud though!

Nice looking picture frame and corner shelf. I see no sawdust on you router table, you need to spend less time cleaning and more time working! At least then I will not feel so bad about the sawdust on my router table. I also like to make my own frames.

Those two projects Pascal would make advanced members happy. Perhaps in the future you could take a few shots during the making so that other members can see how YOU do things.

Thanks for the kind words, I'm feeling pretty good about these two widgets!

I could do that, though I must confess I'm still trying to figure that out myself!

Good eye! I grew up in Belgium and moved to the US around 10. That picture was take after my wife and I got married and stopped by to see the family that couldn't make it to the wedding. It's one of my favorite pictures.

I like to keep things clean - that and the saw dust was packing into the lower edge of the fence preventing the wood from sitting flush - seems that maybe there should be a groove there....

Congrats on your first projects, Pascal. They both look nice.

I must say, however, that the photo looks pretty sharp for a guy named "blurry".
