Well sort of, I had my back surgery and it was a little more than I bargained for, and so is the downtime. So beware you wayward jocks and prepare to have me pick apart,critique, and give some of my input more and more. Now to the first order of business and that is a huge THANK YOU to ALL of you kept me in your prayers and thoughts. I am going to go on a little tangent here so please stay with me on this one. A simple question was asked to me and I answered it and thought about and answered it again. This question is relatively simple but don’t answer at your first gut reaction, take a day or so and then answer I would love to hear it.
The question is why do you work with wood? Simple question but seriously think about it for a little while though and read through my answer.
My gut reaction was because I love it! I mean that is how we all start at it right? A nice little hobby or a nice little business to run. But as I lay in a hospital bed angry with a lot of things and selfish enough to argue with God I got hit by something along the lines of a cattle prod.
Ohh man did it hurt to the high heavens and in that little second of hurt,confusion, sorrow, and self pity my answer became clear to me. For those of us wood working is our lively hood we take a different look at this end of wood working. However those who do this for a hobby look at it from an altogether angle.
My Answer: I work with wood because I love to take something raw and turn it into something awesome. But along that road of business owner, woodworking was actually becoming a job, and I started hating it, started taking shortcuts that would ultimately put the project further behind. And then the back thing slowed me a little ,but God stopped me in my tracks. I can’t even go into the shop a sniff the saw dust. Man there is nothing like walnut saw dust in the morning. Am I angry about the whole situation? Not anymore. I can’t wait to get this rehab done six months of it, and actually go in the shop and make me something for myself so I have some planning to do.
Once again beware Huck is on the prowl and I want photos of your projects not one or two but we can put six in there so do it. As I want to look at all of these inspiring pieces coming in here.
