Well, this is my first blog and I have no idea what I am diong. I am just getting started in woodworking and I ahve some many project ideas floating around in my head. It is all so confusing and frustrating. I have written down some of my ideas and can’t wait to get started on some of them. The thing is that I feel like I should get my shop somewhat organized first, which I am working on. Notice I said organized not “cleaned”. To add to my frustration is the fact I am unemploed and broke. I do have some wood and some decent tools. I think I just need the motivation. The weather here doesn’t help much right now either. It is cold with about 8 inches of snow on the ground which makes working in my small cold shop tough. Sorry to whine so much but my understanding of this “blog” thing is just to put my thoughts down regarding my woodworking journey. Maybe through this I will get some clarfication and inspiration.

Thanks for reading!

No worries Eric. I know what you mean about not wanting to go into a cold shop and having more ideas then time or wood allow for. There are some great people around here who are more than willing to offer their advice.

As far as all of the ideas you have, writing them down is a good start. I have a folder in a filing cabinet of magazine articles, sketches and notes of different things I’d like to make.

I dare say many of us are in the damn boat. There are some who simply don’t want to admit it.

I got some bad medical news yesterday. My wonderful wife and I are determined to not let it alter our life in any way.

Love your family, tighten up your spelling, organize and clean up your shop, to hell with the weather, enjoy your enriched time on LJ.

You’re here; a good first step. Keep working, keep posting with pictures, stay focused and keep going forward.
