Seventy one days ago I wrote a blog entry that said my break was basically over and that I had a lot of things to get started on. Well, it just so happened that things at work really started picking up about 71 days ago. I have been so tired when I get home that I hardly feel like getting into the shop. Hopefully I have finally found a way to get into the shop some.
I have started the rocking horse for the boys, and I try to get out and work on it as often as I possibly can. I have the body cut out and glued together and the legs are cut out. I am ready to attach the legs and them make the rockers. I cannot wait to get this finished. My boys are really excited about it. I will have to get some pictures when it is done.
I am just about done with the drawings for the new television console. I thought I was ready to get started this weekend. I rushed home Friday from work, rushed to Lowe’s to pick up some Maple plywood and got home just after Hanna had started to sprinkle on us. I got the plywood in the garage without any incident. When I got up Saturday morning and started looking at the plans I realized the thing was way too tall. It has taken all of yesterday and today to redesign the thing. Now, I think I will be done with it before the weekend, and hopefully I can get started. I will blog the construction process on that thing. Maybe we will all be able to learn something.
I am looking forward to getting back into the community here. I have been looking and posting occasionally. Now, maybe I can add a little more to the content here. One of the first things that I have to do is finish up the blog on the bunk beds and post that project. I have been putting that one off for a while for some reason. I am not really sure why, but I have.
Gotta go for now. I have some more work to do on the entertainment center (television console) to do. I want to get this thing done as soon as possible. More hopefully soon.
