It is 28 degrees outside so going out to my uninsulated shop would be torture. No problem, I’ll just smooth out parts of my end table inside, watch college football and test out our new vacuum cleaner ;)

I just need to get it done before the fiancé comes home and sees the huge mess haha

You might get shot, but…...I used to use the Kitchen table to do small projects on…

No worries, the vacuum worked like a charm and she won’t be able to tell! Looks like I won’t be getting coal for Christmas lol

I hate to say it, but I don’t think the vacuum worked, big red area, your fiance is going to notice.
Good Luck.
At least you got to stay warm, what’s the temp in the doghouse? lol

It’s 7 degrees outside here in Colorado right now, and I’ve been working in my unheated garage for the last few hours. Takes dedication, I guess, though it really does suck. Might be time to work on insulating and heating the shop… been meaning to do so for years. Or I could just work in my spare bedroom and make a mess like you :) ... at least it would be warmer. I hate sanding in my house though, tracking dust all over the place.

Might as well break her in now.

btw – don’t be surprised if you get a stronger vacuum cleaner and a new tarp for Christmas.

I have often wondered how they kept pre industrial revolution shops properly warm.
