Quick Poll

‘Tis the season…

When we build projects for relatives on our gift list.

Sure, there have been years when Aunt Mable wants a cutting board, mom wants a picture frame and your cousin Vinny wants a cigar humidor… and you’ve built individual projects for each.

But, it’s so much more efficient to build one kind of project for everyone.  This way, everyone on the list gets the same item built in steps. You can cut all the pieces with the table saw fence set to the right width, cut mortises with the router bits set to the right depth…  It becomes production work.

So, this week, tell us if you have built multiple copies of a particular project and what the largest number of these projects you built at one given time.

  1. We have 5 grandchildren so when I make wooden toys for Christmas, it is usually 5 at a time. Or 3 for the girls and 2 for the boys. And when it is for the older kids, it is usually 2 or maybe 4 items. Cant play favorites. 🙂


  2. I built 25 or so Palm Boxes at once because I had all the set ups dialed in.
    But the funny thing is, that once one person got one, everyone wanted one and they were gone before I knew it.
    The same thing happened with a bunch of I-Pad holders I batched out.
    The postage sending them to all the out of town relatives who wanted one almost broke me! lol
