In this week show we do a simple “Pouting Chair”. http://www.cn-woodworking.com/chairs/pouting-chairs/ I think this would be a good beginning woodworker piece, with the emphasis being on designing your own design.
I haven’t come up with an intermediate project just yet thinking about something like A Shaker Herb Cupboard https://www.google.com/#hl=en&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=shaker+herb+cupboard&oq=shaker&gs_l=hp.1.0.35i39l2j0l2.1292.2617.0.7029.6.6.0.0.0.0.163.862.0j6.6.0.les%3B..0.0…1c.1.4.psy-ab.KGL8eGD1VjE&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&bvm=bv.42661473,d.dmQ&fp=53efdd2ca6698dcf&biw=1311&bih=565
with the emphasis on this being to create an old antique looking finish and perhaps build it with hand tools only 🙂
Then I’m thinking of doing the Jefferson lap desk as an advanced project http://www.woodbender.com/Thomas_Jefferson_s_Desk_NMV.html
I have not ran any of these past The Girls , and feel sure there will possibly be some opposition to having three separate contest. However considering the diversity of folks that we have I think it may be warranted here .Again just throwing out ideas .. I know Sherri is trying to firm up prizes specifically. So stay tuned and will see how it all comes together.
