Always one to jump from one project to the next, I decided to chill a little bit this time and catch my breath. I’m still trying to learn that life isn’t a sprint. I’m now working a few hours in a day at my real job, so I have to give myself time to readjust.
I spent a few hours yesterday tidying up my ‘shop’ – cleaned my TS blade, put in a ZCI, changed the blade on my SCMS and basically puttered around contentedly. I tried to make some space for my soon to be arriving jointer (new to me) and I’m bound and determined that I will get some work done in the garage this winter. I now have heat, which was a necessary improvement. A DC system will have to wait a bit though, so for the time being it will continue to be mask, earplugs and shopvac. One step at a time.
Before calling it a night , I got out the step ladder and took down a few nice pieces of black cherry and maple from my lumber racks. I looked at them awhile and then just walked away. I can honestly say that this is the ONLY place where I’ll admit to dreaming about them. I think I’ll wait until they decide what they want to be…
-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.
