I've always believed that the best form of learning is through actually working. It doesn't matter if your goal is imaginary, as long as you look at it as a real task, your mind will follow along.
I've tried reading a lot of techniques, watched numerous of videos and tutorials, but the moment I touched the first piece of wood I had, I realized it's all about skills. It's Craftsmanship, it's not theory. Therefore I started thinking of a projects that I had to complete.
I knew most of the final results won't be good enough to even gift, not to mention selling. But I didn't care – I knew that I have to learn, to master the skills and then think of the final result.
Here are some of my "projects", what I've learned from them and what is the final result.
