I’m home today from work because I fell flat on my face last night. So now my back is messed up again. Frustrating. Looks like I’ll be returned to reading books, etc. for a while. The good thing is that the hand tools I’ve been playing with I can use while sitting and so I can still fiddle a bit. No power tools for Betsy – medication = no power tools for you!
I fell because my leg gave way – I have bad joints and sometimes one just gives out and I can’t catch myself. I’d feel sorry for myself except I’ve been learning to see past the present and have had the privilege of knowing people who have had much worse to deal with and have learned from their grace and power.
I’m quite thankful that I’ve been learning hand tools so I can still do some woodworking during these “down” times.
ok – now back to my musing. I’ve been searching the various sites for a plan for a chisel rack. I must not be using the right key words because I’ve not found much. Any help with ideas on a good rack would be appreciated. I have been thinking that I’d lke to make a rack for the area around my bench and maybe a box/rack for travel to my sofa/work spot to use when I can’t sit at my bench. I’m not much on designing things. I could just do the old fostener bit and slit on a 2×4, but I think I want something a little more than that. And of course a box is a box but I really want to see other woodworker’s ideas.
Above all, please keep me in your prayers. And certainly don’t forget those folks, espcecially our fellow LJ’s, in California.
