« Part 5: Life Happens and Emotions Get In the Way Part 6 of Workshop Ramblings series Part 7: What a year! »

I spent some time in the shop tonight and sadly it was the first time in a long time: too many things happening at the same time.

It didn’t take me long to once again figure out that woodworking is fun! The sound of the blade on the radial arm saw sang its familiar song and the whine of the shop vac added to the symphony. The planer and the jointer had chips flying through the air. Saw dust fell to the floor and over at the lathe wood shavings just peeled off of a leg as I touched it with my skew chisel. I have got to spend more time in the shop.

Working with wood is COOL!

Yes Brian, do more ramblings in your shop – but with purposes.

I spent all my spare time this week repairing leaks on the solar heater for our pool

Gee, I miss my shop!

Hey Brian
That’s what it’s all about playing your own song in the shop each tool is an instrument in your orchestra.
David has been a conductor of great music for years.
