Hands up. Step away from the keyboard, slowly. Turn off that PC and make your way to the shop as quickly as possible!

Glad to see you will be cutting the addiction Dick!

There are too many people posting too much good stuff.

I’m going into overload.

So true Karson. But just think, daylights savings time returns this weekend, so you will have longer evenings to work in the shop. Least that is what they try to tell you…

I hope I don’t get withdrawl, it’s going to be real hard, I’ll have to have my better half keep me informed if anything real important comes up.
I hope this will be easier than quitting smoking, which I did when I was 7 years old.

Yes, but sometimes it gets hard to keep working when it is getting dark outside. The body seems to think its time to eat and relax instead…

I recommend getting a Logman tenon maker. It’s a fun machine, & it makes things a lot quicker< & easier. I didn’t have it when I made the Arbor. Also get the book they have. It’ll help a lot. They show wood dowels to lock them together, but I use exterior deck screws of various sizes. If you get a tenon maker, it gets addictive.
Also check this Blog.

Dick,

Take me with and kick my butt out to my shop also. I can relate. With all the weather and other things going on lately its been easy to avoid the shop. I put in mega hours over weekend so I can justify a little time off. :)

I’m laughing so hard I’m almost crying—almost, Obi.. almost…

Dick says he is breaking the addiction and then he responds 5 times (within the past 2 hours, based on when I am reading this.)

I guess it is just not a “cold turkey” break. :)

You know, one of the first signs of withdrawal is having the shakes. Perhaps you should stay away from woodworking tools and spend some time on the computer ‘til the shakes go away.

It’s not my PC that’s been keeping me from my shop. It’s something much more addicting…. It’s a girl! That’s right… I have fallen victim to Cupid’s arrow. I have been dating the most wonderful woman for the last four months, and my shop time has been cut way down. I’m not complaining though. Who knows… maybe one day she’ll be the one that I have to beg for money for new tools. She can’t stop me from enjoying my woodshop, though. I really pulled one over on her. I told her I would build her a new wine cabinet. She thinks I’m doing it for her…. little does she know that it’s all about a little “me time” in the shop. Oh who am I kidding…. it’s for her.
