Grandkids. Ain’t it funny how that one word can have such an effect on your woodowrking hobby? I went into this evening with one granddaughter and one big project to complete before the end of summer. With an annoucement, tonight from my daughter, I now have two projects to complete by summer’s end. I had already committed to building a twin-sized Pencil-Post Bed for my granddaughter, Zoe, for her birthday in July. I’m now committed to a cradle by the middle of September. Maybe I should just be committed.
All I can think is it’s plenty of motivation to get me into the shop. It’s been awful cold and my shop’s heating and insulation are pretty much non-existant right now. Looks like it’s time to put on the long underwear, drag out the space heaters and get to work.
I did stress to my daughter that I would really, really like a grandson. She said I’ll take what I get and I said of course. But a grandson would be really nice. Look foir updates in the coming months. Right now I’ve got to decide between Oak and Cherry. Or maybe, Walnut. Decisions, Decisions.
