I haven’t been in the shop much lately. I’ve been finding that recovering from surgery is taking more out of me than I expected. It’s frustrating to not be able to do what you love.

But I hope to get back to it soon.

I hear ya. I’ve got a pic line and am fighting a bone infection. I feel fine but am forbidden to move much and it screws things up. Looks like the shop will go unheated for most of the winter. Netflix is nice but only to a certain extent! A little cabin fever up here in Maine.

I wish all the best for you two guys.

My last project was finished last week, and I am suffering a “letdown” as I begin to prepare the ” Workshop in the Woods” for a long winter rest.

Keep the faith guys. I’ve been there more than once and it just makes it that much more appreciated when you get back in the shop!

Thanks for the comments. I was able to get out into the shop for about an hour tonight. Got a little work done on an advent calendar.

I hope that you will start healing up quicker. I’m sure it’s frustrating Keep your chin up.
