Wood box for firewood so my husband didn't have to go out in the cold at night when we were using our fireplace. 

Nice Barb, a good fire box is a must when using a fireplace. I remember growing up, I had to stack logs at the back door. So when we brought them in, had to sit them next to the fireplace to melt the snow.

I think I built a shoe rack for my dorm room in school. I’m pretty sure it was three pieces of MDF nailed together and lasted less than a week…

This is my first request. Nothing original.





I would not want it for myself, but it was just what she asked for.
