Paper crafts

This is something I want to do more of. I own some tools but have very little experience.


I haven't done much woodworking since college, but really want to get back into this.


Hey, there's a metronome near the bar, so I thought I'd mention it. I want to learn how to improve my sense of timing so I can conduct stuff.
