I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around

As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin casting. Why oh why am I all worried about where to buy my jig knobs from when in all reality I can cast them myself!

Of course I need some stock to get started up and will really try hard not to get so side tracked that my new machinery stands idle as can sometimes happen with daily life but once I realized this what type, what size etc etc just seemed less important. No, I don’t want to make mistakes. I hate re-doing things because I didn’t plan properly or overlooked something BUT I know that those other skills that we have that don’t always seem to go together can sometimes make our shops and our projects just that much more ingenious (and when I see some of the jigs and projects – but jigs in particular for me – I realize how many of you out there are truly ingenious!)

So now I’m going to go order my T track, relax and do some practising on the bandsaw until the order arrives :)

Oh and thanks to any that read my previously interrupted post and came back. Nice to see y’all again.

Wait, what?
I see “post interrupted”. You seriously posted just the intro to a story?
Is this an artistic statement? “I’m so busy i can’t get to my jigs OR to writing a full post. Feel my pain.”

Actually there was no option to save a draft of where I was at, so yes, I posted what I had at the time.
I’m glad you were SO eager to read my post that the end could not be waited for. I’ll take that as a compliment since this is my blog and not just a forum post! I would have saved you from such terrible suspense but since my dog started to get violently ill at that moment and although I wouldn’t tell you otherwise that I love my pooch more than any potential lumberjocks facing a cliffhanger, I’ll just leave my blog post as that. :)

I’ll assume for the rest that your post was in jest and good natured.

That being said, now that I’m getting back to this, I realized that my attempt to use a statement like “SO FEW FINGERS” on a woodworkers website MIGHT have been a bit of an oversight lol. I trust that my meaning to the title was that I have many interests, many projects and a limit of time, energy and of course money.

So after all that, once I have the same chunk of time that I originally started with; I will finish the topic. At the moment though, I have a brand new fancy lumberjock-recommended bandsaw blade to install. Sorry, you come second ;)
