At this time of year, every year, I start getting a fever for some serious woodwork. For some reason, the change to Fall brings out the craftsman in me and I begin planning new designs and reviewing old plans for carpentry projects I’d like to do. Some are extreme, long-term projects like a three-story deck or home addition. Some are relatively simple such as a coffee table or entertainment center. I get so caught up in it that I lose all perspective on why I didn’t complete these projects over the last year. Thinking back on it, I’m not sure why I don’t continue to work on these projects throughout the year. So far this season, I’ve manufactured 11 16×20 picture frames with 2″ and 3″ framing stock. It’s a fairly minor task, but very detail-oriented. A table saw is in my near future to extend the growing collection of shop tools. With this next item, I should be able to get to work…for real…on some of those projects I keep coming back to. Perhaps when Spring rolls back around I can figure out what happens to distract me from this work. Until then, I’ll try to enjoy the inspiration!
