Fast forward to adult me. I’m a full-blown city girl whose idea of crafting mostly consists of small handheld tasks (i.e. jewelry making, crocheting, colouring books, etc.). I’ve completely forgotten about how much woodworking was a part of my childhood and how beautiful the work of it can be. Then NBC came out with what (in my humble opinion) is one of the greatest television shows ever created. Making It is a traditional competition style reality show that showcases the work of different crafts people from around the United States. They specialize in everything from paper crafting to (you guessed it) woodworking. Oh and it’s hosted by these two fabulous goofballs.

You’re a “hobbyist” and don’t have the interest in building a business right now. I meet LOTS of woodworkers who take a similar approach. And at one point or another, almost ALL of them ended up turning to their skills to make extra money for vacations, savings, or emergency expenses. It’s great to know how to turn on that cash flow whenever you need it!

I admit it. I’m not a good daughter, every year I forget what I’ve got to do on Father’s Day. If you’re in the same boat I'm in, we’re together. So, I decided to make a humble bookmark made from wood which would look elegant and decent. You will need hardwood scraps; the measurement of bookmarks is about 7-in. x 1 3/16- in. Less effort, more appreciation!

Grayson Wood Design loves using his, especially since he works out of a small shop: “I have had this for almost two years now & absolutely love it. Its compact footprint is 31"x 29" & the extensions give you 7ft of work surface. The tool attachment side will accommodate pretty much any miter saw up to 26.5” wide & when not being used the flat surface on the opposite side is a great work bench. If you are like me & work out of a small garage with no space for a large miter station, then this thing is perfect for you. No more setting your saw horses out & trying to level them up to your miter saw. This has saved me so much time & space. It can also be used for planers as well as other bench top power tools.”

The biggest hiccups right at the start were definitely the shipping issues, and just perfecting my builds. The sailboat shelves and mountains, in particular, were tough to make, and sometimes I’d blow too many nails out and have to start over, which is stressful when you’re on a deadline and the finishing process can take days to dry. I’ve gotten a lot more skilled at building everything, just by doing it hundreds of times. I’m very quick now too and a build that previously took 20 minutes now takes 6-7.

First and the foremost, from the roll of veneer edging cut out five strips or as many as you prefer in accordance to the size you’re making. Secondly, apply glue onto the very end of one of the wood strips. Then, connect the ends together forming a loop. Alongside, make sure you let the glue dry off so you can repeat the same task with other wooden strips. When all of this is done, you can add flowers inside or various types of greenery that would look beautiful. Add plant cuttings and hang pendants with string. I know all this might seem complicated to you in one go. However, with the link provided you will be able to make it better. Hope you enjoy!
