Sawdust or Prozac
I need to get in the shop!
I must confess that, between creating an eZine and putting together a magazine, the time actually left to make sawdust is way too limited. I know the situation is getting acute when I get a question from somebody and my first impulse is to run out to the shop and “show them” rather than explain it. And it doesn’t take much for me to get my woodworking fix. Sometimes I just have to run out to the shop and make a prop for a photo (just a couple of cuts and a bit of sanding) and I feel 100% better.
How about you? How often do you “need your fix” in the shop? Anyone else out there find that the shop is a much cheaper and agreeable solution to stress than some of today’s alternatives?
