Most of a year has gone by since my last entry. 8 months were spent commuting out of town for work, only home on weekends – usually for about 36-40 hours total. Many of those commutes were spent driving 8 hours each way to be home for those 36-40. So work on the tables went very, very slow. A comment from the Wood Whisperer today on Facebook talked about his son being up much of the night, so having been up with him, he wasn’t spending any shop time while tired. That was my story most of 2011. I might go out for a walk around, look at the wood pile, make a list or two, but not pick up so much as a chisel while I was the slightest bit fatigued.
That stint seems to be done for now. I am beginning to feel rested, and have put the last coats of finish on the table tops and have some work on bases to go.
