Good Morning, I’m glad to hear that you made your exit from the Shop with all of your digits intact. :-)

Creativity is best addressed without distractions. A quick mental ‘Attitude Check’ is in order prior to entering my Shop.

My shop is my safe haven, where I can get away from it all, it’s therapeutic.
When I’m not able to compartmentalize a distraction, to be resolved later, I don’t engage power tools or try to force the advancement or completion of a project which requires my undivided attention.
My tablesaw is not therapeutic, it expects my undivided attention.

Your frustration may not have entered the Shop with you but, it certainly accompanied your exit.

A man needs to know his limitations. Skills are not absorbed, they are experienced and to that end, learned.
My Father used to tell me, “Good judgement comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgement”.

The negative outcome that you encountered with your project should be accepted as experience.

Don’t give up. You, as we all are, are still learning.

Best Regards. – Grandpa Len.

Work Safely and have Fun. :-)
