Can you be addicted to woodworking?
At this point I am finding more solutions than problems, partially thanks to lumberjocks.
The work is challenging enough to keep me striving to achieve the illusive gold standard, pro-status, tradesman vice hobbyist. Still, I have no idea what accurate to one thousandth of an inch looks like.
My tools and equipment are tuned well (hysterical laughing) and my technique is almost good enough to put flaws in the barely perceptible range.
That range is mine and will surely change as well as I progress.
I am planning my next project long before my current one is finished, working well enough into the night to worry about noise complaints, and running out of money for wood.
I even lied about what I was doing at 7am on a Saturday.
One of three things has to happen:
1. I can start taking charitable donations for penniless woodworkers.
2. Find a support group and swear it off for life.
3. Get good enough to support myself lumberjocking.
I am currently taking suggestions for dealing with a lumber addiction.
