Many politicians are predicting the future in a way we have never seen before, relying mostly on experts and scientific specialists, health workers and others to steer us through Coronavirus pandemic. With Covid-19 on us, we are many of us distancing ourselves from our neighbours for the common good of all in so many diverse spheres until we get through this. From the early stages, I was unsure what parts would affect who — now we know that all parts affect all of us; I have never seen as many people working in unison to help the vulnerable and those in danger. Personally I am isolated and in my isolation, I set myself the challenge last week to give everyone a shot at a project and now I have come up with the goods.
So I had nine projects but then remembered I had promised a sandbox for my granddaughter so I am including this too. I have included the most very simple and then some a little more challenging.
I wanted short projects and smallish ones that could be made from scraps with just a few basic hand tools. You will need only hand tools to do this and by that, I do mean not to use any machines unless of course you really want to or need to.
Here we are, the majority of us may now have the time we kept saying we didn’t have time for. There is nothing like enforced solitude over a long period to help us take of things we might have not been able to prioritise in our all-too-busy agendas.
So, plan out your days, I will be busy as can be preparing my stock to walk you through the steps and maybe even entertain you for a while. I am so glad Spring brought with it some better weather. At least we can get outside. And don’t forget there is a ton of stuff to make both from my blog, commonwoodworking.com. woodworkingmasterclasses.com, and my youtube channel.
There are a couple of things missing from these shown that I have made but may find time to show them later. Looking at most of these you may think you already know how I made them, and how to make them but some I will reserve making a judgement because some have a few hidden quirks to them. Look to the future. I am hoping to combine blogs and video to create the content.
