We all have those projects in woodworking that we design, build, and gloat over when we complete them. And we have those projects are just truely awful. Then we have those projects which begins with an idea, an inspiration, a project that we know that will stand out, and throughout the day at our regular jobs we plan and strategized on how we are gong to tackle this awsome project. Lumber is bought, a new router bit or machinery is obtained. The project starts out nicely and everything is turning out right, but then things start to go south. What sems to be a simple task in our heads, proves to be more difficult in real time. Many hours are spent trying to get the project back on track, but there is a point where we shut off the sander and stare at the project on the bench thinking “this could be one of those “crap” projects”
Its hard, many hours have been spent on the project and I find myself doubting my abilities. Am I to turn this project around and make it one of my sucesses. Or should I throw in the towel, and move to the next project. I just hate when I reach that pivotal point thinking will this project be “Good” or “Crap”.
I wonder does this happen to other people out there.
