I have not completely decided on my project yet, but I am thinking about making a model sailboat, with a dynamic aspect of working, moving parts: a swinging rudder, working running rigging, etc. This is something that really reminds me of home: my family lives on the water in Maryland, sailing is a big part of our life, and I have always wanted a reminder of that life here in CU. I anticipate the hardest part of this project being the woodworking: the carving of a very unusual, asymmetric shape. I have actually tried to make a model boat many times before, but now I believe I have the skills, resources, and motivation to actually make it happen!
