Christmas Gift Project...

I enjoy woodworking and I'm always looking for problem solving projects to take on. At work, I wanted to do a special Christmas something for the office secretary. She had had a very rough year.

She is very short, and her feet dangle when she sits at her station. She was using different things like boxes, trash can, etc. to rest her feet on. So I thought a great project would be to make her a foot rest. I had just the right scrap and hardware that would be perfect for the project.

The project took just a few nights. I used a friend's shop (he's got heat in his), in exchange for helping him with some chores he needed a hand with. We got to spend some good time working together.

The secretary was blown away when she opened it. She already talks about how she is going to keep using it after she retires. Now she has a rest that won't give out on her (like an empty box) or get in the way (like the trash can). She reminds me of how you can spend a fortune for gifts for people, but sometimes the smallest and simplest things can last the longest and mean the most. I had a nice Christmas because she did.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Love the potty training idea. Might use that one down the road. Got friends with little ones that will need a boost soon.

The joinery was more than called for, but I thought it would look good, so I went with it.

Gotta agree with you John. That's what I was reminded of this Christmas.

Not from Michigan Jeff. It's a nickname I was given during a good time in my life, and I like hanging on to it.

Thanks for the comments fellas.
