Tomorrow I want all of you to go stand in your shop and realize how lucky you are to have it. Regardless what type of shoo you have, it’s your domain. It’s set up the way you like it. It doesn’t matter if anyone else even likes the way your shop is organized. It only matters to you.
I am currently working out of my brothers furniture restoration shop. He does an awesome job of restoring all types of furniture. I thank him dearly for sharing. He does have a lot of nice equipment. The problem is, it’s not my shop, it’s not my equipment and it’s not set up the way that is comfortable for me to work. I want 10 to 12 foot ceilings. His are 8. It is very difficult to work with very long stock. Not a problem for him, big problem for me. His wood shop section is relatively small. Most of his space is dedicated to upholstery work.
Again, I am extremely thankful that he is letting me work there, but man I miss my own shop. The saying about “you don’t appreciate what you have till it’s gone”. It couldn’t be more true. It certainly doesn’t compare to the death of a loved one, does it?
But as I get all the paperwork taken care of so that I can get on with life, I am slowly getting things working again. In time I will have a new domain. And every day i will be thankful and much more careful to take care of that part of my life.
Thanks for reading
