some brief thoughts on making

PSG at age 2.5 helping her father sand and refinish her new bed.

I grew up in a family of makers. I don’t really think about many of the things I make … I cook. I bake. I knit. I build. I do.

I find I often struggle with the #yearofmaking project precisely because making is just a part of me.

Yesterday on my personal blog, Penguin Girl, I wrote about the first version of a simple laptop stand I built.

I was surprised at the interest my friends expressed on this project. I’ve been hoping to find time to work more in wood and when I do you’ll find something in the shop. Both how to build them, and ready-made items. At the moment I plan to focus on small accessories for your home, such as a foot stool, a monitor stand, and well, I need to go through the house and inventory what I’ve made for me, so I can determine what I can make for you.

What type of items are you interested in? What skills would you like to learn?

  1. Weaving. I’d love to learn to weave. (Of course, it would be easier if I’d just put my Cricket together and start…)
