Interesting Projects

It is interesting to note that many projects we start may not have anything to do with wood at all. I am a lover of making things out of wood so I thought I could incorporate wood into any project. Although, I still think I can incorporate wood into any project, my focus lately is should I have to. In my last article I said I would talk about packaging.

Possibilities

I was in a craft store recently and I walked around and made a list of everything I could find that I may want to try. I am amazed at how long my list is and the variety of items I chose. In my previous articles, I was starting to combine disciplines and see how they could be incorporated into one project. I realized that the possibilities are endless. Therefore choose one thing that interests you and then go for it!

Creative Packaging

The marketing of some products is very creative where others are mediocre. For example, I was looking at wood burning items. The packaging was obviously done in such a way that many people could get what they want at different stages of their projects. One package was a “starter” package, where there was everything included to start wood burning. Another package had items sold separately to replace items consumed during the process. Interesting lesson to learn there! Know what it is?

Where to start?

My suggestion is get an inexpensive starter package and test it out to see if it is something you want to do. If it is then you can go back and buy better items. There is nothing saying you have to spend a fortune to get started. Remember start out small and have fun learning. The best part is learning and seeing the progress you make over time. For me any way!

Once you have started…

Once you have started and are making good progress then you can incorporate more likes into your work. I have many likes and is difficult to incorporate them all into one project. Although, my extensive likes list does not stop me from having fun and trying new things. Yes, even if they do not include wood! In the summer of 2011, I incorporated my love of dirt, fish, plants, light, and rock into my pond building project. It turned out remarkably well and I am always tinkering and changing it. Therefore, a project that may never end!

Happy building….
