« Part 13: round II, in review Part 14 of 30 projects in 30 days series Part 15: round III... around the corner »

So, of late I’ve been wondering if I should start gearing up for another 30 days challenge in November. Prep some stock, glue ups and make lists of ideas (which makes the most sense). or rather be lazy and enjoy the nice fall weather, and just wing it come November.

Well the fates have answered in the form of getting an offer on our house! Closing date mid month. Yay, we get to move! Crap we have to move.

Needless to say I have a whole new set of challenges and logistics, not only moving house, but also moving shop. At least my wife doesn’t question the value of a huge pile of hardwood, including such gems as this Walnut milled back in the 50’s

and just a bit of oak from the 50’s

So, that said, I’ll be bowing out of next months 30 days challenge – hopefully not to the disappointment of friends and family hoping to snag a few special Christmas presents (though I still have a few things left on Etsy!). We’ll likely also be bowing out of a few other scheduled events as we look for boxes to fill, and a place to move said boxes in short order.

Though this time were not as picky with our choice of digs… A shop, with two bedrooms and whatever kitchen and family room that comes with. (And yes my wife has my shop high on the list!!!!) Maybe there will be enough left after closing for a nice new tablesaw, if thats not pushing my luck ;)

in the meantime, anyone willing to pick up the challenge and let me live vicariously?

well isn’t that exciting, scary, daunting, panicky….. and overall good news!
A new shop.. hmmmm no basement dungeons I’m assuming.

Congratulations and best wishes for finding a lovely new abode and for a smooth move
(oh—and your gardens—I hope you get a beautiful garden location as well.

Scott I’d kind of hoped that My projects would be in your next 30/30 challenge.

Karson, that was the plan… if not sooner.
Fear not, the lathe is the last thing I’m packing!

as I start clearing out all the burnables, and stuff to donate/sell… I suppose there is no harm in doing a little glue up, and well, if something ends up on the lathe… I need a little Zen in the coming month don’t I?
