OK gang, I’ve finally ‘surfaced’ from a work caused hiatus, now here it is the end of January and I’m jonesing for shop time. Unfortunately it is hovering around 0° outside. I live in central NY, and I’m pretty unimpressed with cold and snow as a rule. 0° however is a hard limit for me. I’ll go out and do my job, but I’m certainly not going to go out and make much in the way of sawdust.
Work has changed for me this past week. I stepped down as manager back to being just a driver for the courier service I am contracted with. I did this for more family time, and a whole lot less stress.
This will eventually lead to more shop time once the weather improves. I’ve got my insulation project waiting for me, I bought it back in October intending to put a dropped ceiling to keep the ‘heat’ in. Didn’t happen, and it hasn’t mattered. I’ve been out in the shop exactly twice since I picked up the 2” rigid insulation pieces.
My wife and I sold a fair number of cutting boards this fall, so I’m going to be cranking up the planer and so forth once it gets warmer. (Heck, I’ll settle for just about freezing…) She does a great job at sales, I’ll stick to making the product, and we’ll be hitting the show circuit this spring.
