« Part 179: Planing with my router... Part 180 of Extremely Average series Part 181: Tiny Box Progress »

Hello LJ’s,

Tonight I wrote some musings about what ‘Type’ of woodworker I might become. I really don’t know, but I do know that there are a lot of great designers who I like. I guess the fun is in finding out.

Choose worthwhile goals and you’ll become who you’ll become along the way; don’t, and you’ll become who you are. Any wisdom in that? Your saw horses, router table and even your plane collecting/sharpening all seemed like successful projects to me. Of course, I don’t think a project doesn’t have to end in perfection to be counted as a success. On the other hand, a mistake (doing something your already know you shouldn’t do) is just that. 2+3 is not 4, and there is nothing to be gained in beating a dead horse, unless you really, really don’t like horses. But, I think that most people would agree that, if a person doesn’t fall off a horse once in a while, then they aren’t taking enough chances in order to grow. See the difference between a failure and a mistake? In regard to our previous verbage, I think there is no sense in leading a reader along a long path only to witness a dead horse beating! : )

That seems reasonable to me.

I seem to remember someone on Saturday Night Live saying something about , “No sense in beating a dead horse…(pause)...aside from the sheer joy of it.” I am not sure that applies.
