My favorite woodworking project has to be my first. Everyone remembers their first. I was in 7th grade shop class. It was the first year at my school we were allowed to take shop class. I had helped my father out with many projects before but we only used simple tools: jigsaw, circular saw, drill, and hammers. In shop class I got to use the BIG power tools. The table saw, band saw, drill press, drum sanders, well you get the idea. It was love at first feel.
My project was a gun rack that could hold 3 guns. (I only had one gun, a daisy lever action BB gun. But I was hoping for a shotgun for Christmas that year.) I spent a ton of time working to make it perfect. I finished it and took it home. It is still sitting in the bedroom to this day. I will never part with it. It was the project that cemented my life long affair with woodworking and power tools.
I don't have much free time right now, but if I get a chance I will try to turn this into a hub.
