« Part 1: Plans and Observations Part 2 of Random Thoughts series Part 3: Question »

I need to be out in the shop. This weekend I plan to get through step 5 (of 9) in the pantry/cabinet project. I need to run to the orange place for one more piece of lumber. The one I selected for making the shelf rails had a defect that allowed it to break when ripped to one inch strips. But to tell the truth, my wife is sitting on the couch knitting with Boomer the basset hound at her feet and Leon the cat on her lap, the coffee is good, and for right now I prefer to just sit here and enjoy.

So, the plan for after I get motivated is finish drilling the last few pocket screw holes (from step 3) make the last three shelf rails, (from step 2) complete the sanding and start applying the finish. Done by lunch time? There was a day when I thought I would be but off all my woodworking skills, patience is the only one harder to master than hand cut dovetails.

But I am working on both.

Observation 1, Even a cheapskate like me should allow for a little extra material.

Observation 2, basset hounds make good foot warmers.

Observation 3, A second cup of coffee helps us wake up, a third helps us learn patience.
