Last November Scottb challenged himself to do 30 projects in 30 days. The idea struck me as rather interesting, but not something I was ready to commit to. Today, Scott has announced that he will do it again. Darryl decided that he too would take the challenge and has started his story.
I wanted to join Scott back in November, but I didn’t have the guts. Today I throw my hat in the ring and commit to 30 projects in 30 days. While I do turn, it’s more of a filler activity for me. Most of my projects are furniture and generally take more than a day to complete. I’ve looked over that things that I’ve made, and there are plenty of projects available that do not involve turning and can be completed in a day. While I hope to still have some furniture pieces in the mix, there will be some boxes and pens and who knows what else.
In case you’re wondering, I haven’t really thought this through, but just jumped in with both feet. I’m looking for an exercise in discipline and a consistent practice of the craft I enjoy. I don’t expect to actually sell anything I make, but since I have a big family and a friend. Nothing will be hanging around here for long.
So, as a prelude to the start of 30 days of discipline, allow me to invite a few more LumberJocks to take up the challenge. It’s for personal growth, and who among us couldn’t use a little of that?
