A while back my wife volunteered me to make some poster frames for the elementary school she works at. While cutting the profiles on the oak blanks I fried the router in my router table. Before I could pick up a replacement, my buddy came hauling in a load of lumber wanting a couple more of those work benches like I had built him earlier in the year. He is a wheeler/dealer and is always finding materials that folks are giving away and is always pretty good about sharing materials that he finds so I hated to say no. With the current sauna like conditions we have been having recently I just couldnt find the time (or the will) to catch up. Then it dawned on me, hey you got a 18 year old son who really needs to get out of the house more…lol Well between us we finished up the benches and I got the router replaced and the shaping finished for the frames. Only have one frame clamp so got a couple of more days to go on the frames but can see a small glimmer of light at the end of that tunnel as well. My hats off to you guys who do multiple projects for a living…One of the reasons I enjoy woodworking is that it helps me forget about work for a while but here lately its been almost a job in itself.
