I haven’t blogged in quite a while but I do visit the site pretty regularly. It seems that everything one does requires a really steep learning curve. I’m the kind of guy that just wants to go do things. Of course, I know that if it was easy, there would be no pride of accomplishment.
Lately, I haven’t been able to get to the shop as often as I would like but I am hell bent on building some nice small decorative boxes.
I go up to the shop. decide what I am going to do and work on the project until I get frustrated and then go back the next time and start over or at least from my last successful endeaver.
I WILL BE A COMPETENT WOODWORKER SOME DAY. It’s tht simple. Have ony of the rest of you gone through thsi sam frustration. I wonder how many people have just given up.
I’ve been a guitar play for 44 years and I have reached a certain level of competency in that area and that happened by repeated efforts. Is it possible that some people should just never get the hang of it?
Should I sell my shop tools and take up Knitting? I plan on being back in the shop on Saturday and Sunday. We’ll see what happens.
Oh oh, This didn’t go where I thought I was going when I started.
