My next crafty project was a few crayon holders made out of the black walnut trees we took down.
This project needed power tools, so I headed Santa's Workshop. Which was actually my brother-in-law Jedd's Workshop. He taught me how to use his drill press and then helped me sort through all sorts of terrible flashbacks from middle school industrial technology. I think a few more session in Jedd's garage, using his power sander, circular saw and jig saw, and he might just reverse my feelings associated with the smell of new saw dust.
