The holidays are past, in my neck of the woods it is not fit outside for man nor beast, and my social calendar is woefully empty: what a great time to do some woodworking! This is truly the best time of the year to get into the shop and make some sawdust. Distractions are few, and the winter stretches out in front of us without apparent end. For some, this can be depressing; for us woodworkers, it does not get much better than January and February in the shop.
So, with all this opportunity before you, what are you building? Do you have a special project that you have been waiting to build? I have a goal of turning a bowl a week. It may be more than I can manage – but a goal has got to be challenging to be worthwhile. Along with that goal, I need to get my shop organized … whew!
Well, there is no time like right now to do it. What do you say, are you with me?
