It seems like I have been getting my shop ready forever. I’ve completed a few minor projects and started a few that are not finished. I started with the ntention of building guitars (and still intend to) but i have been more and more interested in building decorative boxes and clocks. You can’t work on the shop forever. I do need to run some new electrical circuits and eleminate some extension cords.

Ah yes, the trials and tribulations of shop arranging. As a small basement shop dweller, my shop has seen several incarnations before it got to the point that it’s at. However, not meaning to burst your bubble, but your statement of, “You can’t work on the shop forever?” Sure you can Dale! Sure you can! Good luck and we look forward to seeing your projects, big, small, or shop related!

nothing wrong with making boxes – everything is essentially a box…they could pave the way to tackle a guitar, or lead you in a new direction. I’ve thought about trying a guitar, and may still,.. one drawback is I never learned how to play so am lacking a little motivation there.

Guitars are just specialized boxes.

I hope to try one also.
