I have started fixing and re finishing wood furniture. I would like some more projects to work on. 10.00 for the materials. You pick the finish. I just finished a table for jdlm, doing another of his now. I can do gun stocks as well.

I don't have the tools to build stuff yet, but I'm working on that. Lol

I will grab some pictures tonight, I need to have jason snap some of the table I just finished. That is a nice looking table, sadly I don't think I'll be in florida anytime soon.

Go to Salvation Army, Savers, or some other store like that and pick up new projects.

Just make sure you know what you are looking for. I can see you sanding for hours to get through veneer to particle board. lol.

Another thing you may like on a smaller scale would be a lathe. You can buy pen blanks for a couple bucks a piece and the pen kits for like $8.

You can pick up a lathe on craigslist for like $60 too. Could learn to turn bowls, goblets, etc too.
