I feel for you, Cozmo! We have ALL been there, and it isn’t fun. Especially around the holidays when you really want to get things done. It sucks. Maybe you are overwhelmed thinking of all the things you want to do. This is a really stressful time for everyone and maybe it would be good to take a breath and look at things one project at a time and go easier on yourself.

It is difficult to step back and slow down when you are wanting to get everything done at once. But sometimes it is the best way to approach things. Perhaps it is time to lower your expectations from yourself and just do what you can. I have seen you make many wonderful projects and I think when you are relaxed and going at your own pace you are capable of making really awesome stuff. But putting too much pressure on yourself takes the fun out of woodworking for you and maybe that is affecting the result.

I hope this helps. I am sure it is temporary and you will be back to normal before long.
