For me is to work, eat, breathe, and LIVE in my shop for hell of a lot more hours than I spent in it this year!

To learn every thing every jock knows and make everyone laugh at least once. That ought to be enough.

I made my last resolution about 30 years ago. It was not to make any more resolutions. I have a perfect record.

My new years woodworking resolutions are

1. Learn to hand cut dovetails, and an all around better understanding of hand tools and the proper ways of using them.
2. Move into a regular shop. I’m in my parents basement
3. Purchase a sliding attachment for my table saw.

Lofty goals, but hey all of them can be accomplished if I work hard for it
Good luck guys set some goals, get a plan, and make your self better

I started a diet in July and have lost 70 pounds so far. When I started I was 330 pounds and am now 260. I want to loose another 60 pounds by next July. My only daughter is having her first baby them. She lives in California and I have not told her what I am doing. I thouht we could both be surprised!

God Bless
