This kind of stuff happens to me. It is why I have four Starrett rulers lying around the shop, since I always misplace tools in a shop a little bigger than a one car garage. I bought a cheap HVLP spray gun today in Lowes, then got home and remembered that I had one in storage I’d never used. Duh…
We all have bad days, and as we get older, it is good to remember that our minds will not be as sharp, it becomes harder to take the cap off a new bottle of mountain dew, (no, they didn’t screw them on harder…), and sometimes, you just have to walk away and rest a while, let your mind catch up.

Today I was working on a really hard guitar, and had it hanging in my shop as the wipe on grain enhancer dried prior to shooting on the lacquer. Even though I know this position in my shop, all the guitars hang there sooner or later, sure as God made little green apples I managed to knock it off its hanger, and only pure luck let me catch it as it nicked one of my bench vices on the way down. Little sanding, another coat of grain enhancer, off we go again. But I left the shop, as I knew I was getting tired and more mistakes would certainly happen if I pushed forward.
Man’s just got to know his limitations…
