A substantial block of time has passed since I last posted on this blog, so I thought I would check in and update what’s happening in the handsawgeek world.
As far as woodworking goes – nothing much to speak of.
The Gerber hardware system which was the subject of a blog series has sat untouched for months. A couple of other projects that were in the works at various stages have also gone idle. Tools have sat forlornly on the shelves.
Why all this inactivity?
To start off, December and early January were marked by some health issues that pretty much kept me out of the shop. Since then, I have taken up going to the local recreation center at least 3 evenings a week to work out (per doctor recommendation). Mrs. Geek and I have also taken up bowling. Just bought our very own ball, bag, and shoe sets, and now engage in rolling a game or two every week. I suck at bowling…my best game so far has been 121.
But, I’ll get better….
In addition, my music rehearsal / performance schedule has increased in the past month or two.
All of these things compete for time normally spent in the shop making shavings and sawdust.
On top of that, my shop area is in shambles at the moment, much of the space being occupied by boxes and furniture that belong to one of my daughters, who had to re-locate to Maryland for a couple of years. Once I can get this stuff moved out of the way and better organized, the shop can become fully functional again.
Anyway, that’s the low-down. I anticipate getting back into the swing of things again in early Spring. Most likely, the onset of Rust Hunting Season will be the catalyst to get me rolling again.
Might even post a new blog entry or two….
