Whats the first thing we all do when we get into the shop in the morning?
I usualy sip my orange juice then I fine tune my sound speakers so I get the optimum musical tunage. Then I visit the black board to see where I left off the day before.

What about you LJers?

You beat me to it Jim….. I usually clean up the mess that I left the night before.

I turn on the radio, after the lights of course :-) Then I reexamine the project for any flaws I might have created the night before.

When I have a medium to large project going in the shop, I actually do not think my mind ever leaves the shop, just my body does. So getting back to it all the next day or the next chance seems to go very smooth, just pick up the wood and cutters where I laid them down last and get right to it.

I just love woodworking!~

I wander around a little , drink coffee , screw my head back on straight , point my brain in the right direction , then start on the hardest task of the day..

Honestly? I thank God that I don’t have to sit at a computer desk designing junk for other people to sell, so anything I do in the morning, I love the fact that I’m doing it for ME!

Thanks for asking….gotta go play… work! : )

Fortunately, this is a hobby. If I had to make money at this I’d be in trouble.

The first thing I do is 20 to 30 minutes exercise, 6 days a week. The more I don’t want to, the better I feel when I’m done.

crank up the jam jams and look for my safety glasses then realize they are up in the house, so i go up to the house to get ‘em re-enter the shop, and realize that i left my sketch in the house, so i go up to the house to get it then back to the shop…. you get the idea, but usually by 10 or 11 i’m making some of the nicest sawdust around!! haha
