Project 10: Done! and Lessons LearnedMarch 11, 2011
I made these! This was one of the more satisfying projects I’ve done so far. But yikes, I didn’t notice until I was editing this photo just how crooked the base of the tall candlestick is. Oh well, I’ll just turn that part to the back.
– Slow and steady wins the race. When I am tired and trying to rush I make mistakes. Last night I cut myself, left a bunch of imperfections in the final candlestick, and drilled a hole right through to the outside of another one. All stupid mistakes I wouldn’t have made if I allowed myself more time.
– Woodturning is fun! I’m definitely going to do it again soon. Everyone on my list might be getting handmade candlesticks for Christmas this year.
– I am not allergic to maple. Whew.
I’m taking another class this weekend to prepare for next week’s project. I hope you’ll come back to check it out!
