I have been in the shop for up to 60 hours a week lately, and as great as that sounds, I’ve been building bathroom cabinets and entertainment centers for customers. While waiting for for stain to set, or clear coats to dry, I glued up piles of cut offs in the scrap bin and made boards. I got boarded and made boards! All given to customers as gifts.

Nice boards, I’m sure your customers will appreciate them! I do the same thing; I always have several things going on at the same time, so I can make best use of downtime.
