Frank, the simple truth is my addiction to this site and the sometimes hours I sit just searching, waiting for that perfect little topic or project to interfere with. To give deserved thanks for sharings, or simple I would have’s….. This site, as well as my dinner, and in a few minutes the boob tube, all interfere with my passion, my love…woodworking. Oh and it interferes with my girlfriend too who comes in a close second to woodworking. LOL.

Kolwdwrkr, All I have to do to get into the shop is, start bugging my wife if she is reading. She sends me to my room (the shop) mainly because she knows I might make HER something! haha

Frank, Thats just teasing…..SUPLIES!!!!!!! Lots and Lots of SCRAP projects just waiting to be created!

Have you finished your star door yet? If not, that will give you something to do for a few minutes. We saw the blogs, but not the finished project unless I missed it.

Dale, The plan for the star project is to make another one and remake the frame to the existing. I intend on making them the side panels to a small desk. If I go crazy I may make them across the back as well, but I get bored easily on any given project. So I’m waiting to get some money for materials. I still want to make something. I feel like there are a lot of projects I have to do, but none of them intrigue me. I guess I’m running out of woodwork enthusiasm with the materials I have and can afford.

Wail dam, read this whole thread and still don’t know what a something looks like. Everyone telling kolwdwrkr to make something, he even said he needed to make something, I just want to know what somethings look like! Post a picture dammit, I might want to make something!

Making something is a very complicated project. It takes a lot of time and effort just to design the something. But don’t worry, I’ll definitely take pictures when I make something.

I’m always trying to make something out of nothing. It beats making nothing while I’m trying to think of something to make… :)
