I’ve been working on slowing myself down for the past few years and have had some success with it. I definitely have in the workshop. It also helps me to break things down into smaller chunks that I can handle in a short period of time (since most of the time I only get an hour or two in the shop anyway – and that time will be dw...
After a busy week of work and life, last weekend allowed me a few hours to devote to this latest “Mystery Project”...Though it only took 3 1/2- 4 hours, the sides were finally joined sometime Saturday morning… The last side is the most work, as it requires two corners to be filed to fit… These larger sides don’t help, they’re harder to handle, so the sides were clamped to the router table to facilitate the fiing… I might have saved mys...
