One of the problems we have in our house is storage. We have a lot of small thing and really do not have a place to store them. I could certainly use some small wooden boxes to put my needles, threads and pincushions in, my husband could use on for some of the tools we use most often. But what I was really impressed was using a wooden shadow box to display awards or flags. My husband was in the navy and it is traditional to give a wooden shadow box with a flag in it as a retirement. I was thinking a shadow box would be a great way to display my daughters swimming medals.
