I was just in the garage to dump a bag of trash in the can, and as I turn around, I look above my poor lonely workbench, all empty and packed up for the winter, and I look up to my clock/themometer on the wall. 3 degrees. Then I come inside, sit down, and look at the 6” tall stack of notes and project plans waiting for spring when its warm enough to work again. I move aside the stack of reciepts for all the nifty toys and tools I’ve recently bought and are only waiting for that spring thaw to be put to use. I shelve the box of magazines and articles and books I’ve been draining for every skill and trick I can.
Then I think of all the wonderful people out there still hard at work in their basement workshops and heated garages and I think to myself with intense resolve…
“Man, those people suck.”
LOL, I can’t wait for spring!! :D
The sad irony is that my brother in law was a contractor that did heating/plumbing/air conditioners etc, but shortly before I really got into woodworking and started converting my garage into a shop he lost that job, and doesn’t have access to the right tools or suppliers anymore, otherwise he would have installed a heater for me at cost. sigh ah well, such is life.
