Well I guess the title of this blog can be misleading. It is not so much a bad thing I suppose. I am tickled to have so much stuff lined up that I am wanting to build. The problem is I find myself looking like a dog chasing my tail. Right now I have three separate projects going on (was four but it crashed and burned…lol) and I only have so much free time to work on them. Seems like every day I see something else that sparks the old mind up and pulls me in another direction.
As of right now I am in the middle of building cabinets that I am going to hang above my stationary work bench. That is high on the list due to I hate clutter and I have run out of room to put things up. I also am trying to put a finish on my practice keepsake box (which turned out horrible but I have learned a LOT). Then I have my ugly little shop stool project I am half way through with.
On top of that I am going to swing by tonight and picking up some cherry a family friend is giving me (the epitome of me hitting the lottery) and I swung by a lumber yard an hour away the other day and could not fight the urge to bring home my first piece of curly maple (I was carrying this stick around showing it to everyone like I just got the best Christmas present EVER… Needless to say I was very excited to own such a pretty piece of wood). I plan on starting a nice keepsake box out of it ASAP…
I guess the reason for me being so long winded is to ask …. “Am I Alone In This?”
I wonder if there is some sort of medical psycho analyses term for someone who has more projects he wants to build than light in the day?....lol.
I have come to really enjoy this site. I have spent many hours just sipping on coffee and admiring work everyone post. My problem is I think it is making my condition (what ever it is called) worse…..lol. I must admit I am enjoying it greatly and hope I never loose this fire and desire to try new techniques and projects.
Thanks for listening (or reading) to my little spout. Now off to try and catch my tail again….lol
