G'day!

With my father having run a carpentry firm for as long as I have existed (founded the same year I was born, in fact), working with tree has always been a part of life here. We made tree swords and shields for playing at war (4 wounds, 20 seconds countdown when killed before back up, hands, feet and head not counting for hits) as well as tanks, planes and lots and lots of naval ships to play D-Day in Normandie on our gravel garage driveway together with lots of plastic soldiers. Now that my mother has got new inhabitants in her home, life for me has turned even more childish and playful than it usually is, and I have served as my stepsiblings' (aged 10 and 12 at the moment of writing) playmate slave regularly for over a year now.

This has included whipping out the best of our old wooden creations, some of those I built can be seen here. Most of our wooden armada had to be burnt a few years ago since it occupied too much storage and most of it was ramshackle were hastily built, but we saved the better pieces. As I have helped my stepsiblings with building wooden tanks, cruisers and amphibious limousines out in my mother's workshop, I also took the chance to dabble in wooden toyships again. In the middle of this picture can be seen the new creation, from summer 2020, surrounded by the better of my non-weapon wooden creations from around 1998-2001:

These, on the other hand, are some simple, and most importantly cheap Christmas presents made out of plywood for various family members in four intense days of work before Christmas eve 2020.

Also, as mentioned elsewhere previously, some Star Wars woodworking occurred:

Wood is such a nice material to work with. Just some quick non-Warhammer projects from last year.

Have you done any fun things in wood? Please share stories and pictures.

Oh wow, this is really cool! It brings back memories of being a young kid, and my Grandad's 'workshop' (his garage, with various pieces of equipment and machinery, and loads of little projects). Somewhere at my mum's I should still have the tank (with movable turret) and plane that he made for me, will have to have a look for them next time I see her. At various points there were also guns (including an Astartes Bolter that I might still have) and other little pieces, and when I was a little older we designed and built a catapult that could fire fruit the length of their garden! πŸ˜‚
Might actually send him a link to this =] (hi Drad! πŸ‘‹)

Also, I love how your Christmas presents go from 'cat' and 'christmas tree' to 'heretic skull'! πŸ˜‚

I asked my Grandad, and it turns out that (with the exception of the catapult, which I think broke during use) everything that was made years ago is in a box at my mum's, so next time I'm over there I'll dig them out for you. 😁
