What's On Your WW Bucket List?

A Bucket List refers to things you want to accomplish before you "kick the bucket."

There are only two things on my woodworking bucket list—projects that I feel I must build.

Number one is a Frank Klausz style workbench. This will be a real challenge for me, but I consider it a rite of passage to build my own bench, and Frank's seems to meet my needs (minus the tool tray). Plus, it's pretty.

Number two is a multi-item project: reproduction handplanes like the Moisset plane pictured at right and 18th c. Dutch planes with decorative carving.

That's it! What's on your woodworking bucket list?

The Moisset plane photo is from The Art of Fine Tools, by Sandor Nagyszalanczy.
