Do you remember the old poster that said, “Sometimes I sits and thinks, and sometimes I just sits”? Well, on those occasions when I sit and actually think, questions often come to mind, questions that I think you can answer for me. Recently, the query that came to mind was one of distribution. When I’ve polled woodworkers in the past, it was clear that a large percentage of their woodworking projects were designed to improve their home. (I know that this is certainly true of me.) What sparked my curiosity this time around was this: which room of my home have I made the most stuff for? I suppose that a bunch of factors can come into play regarding a question like this – the guy who is remodeling his kitchen will have no problem with the answer … but what if you are not in the middle of a big rebuild?
So I put it to you, knowing that you won’t let me down. Over the year, which room of your home has received the most attention in your shop? I will, of course, let you know what I find out.
