    Woodworking and crunching numbers

    I had to ask my kids and wife, to figure out the exact day I decided to cut some wood, it was 3rd week August, 2006.
    So then I decided to write down everything Ive put together since then.
    I figured thats around 108 weeks, take away some vacation time, travel time, sick time, and days when it was just too cold to work in the garage.
    That leaves around 86 weeks of work time.
    I work retail 2-3 days a week, so the day is usually long and I dont put much time if anything at all into woodworking on work days, other than read.

    My list:48 Adirondack chairs
    20 Side tables to go with chairs
    22 outdoor dining chairs or high stools for bar
    2 tiki bars
    2 lounge chairs
    1 small 3x5 shed
    5 outdoor dining tables
    1 large A frame with swinging bench
    1 telephone table
    1 makeup vanity
    2 coffee tables
    1 platform bed
    1 liquor cabinet
    1 set of white kitchen storage cabinets
    25 garage cabinets, pine and scrap plywood
    6-7 simple pine shelving units
    1 chess board
    1 bedroom armoir
    1 outdoor bench for 2
    1 small bookcase
    outdoor planters
    oodles of candle holders
    oodles of routed out signs
    a few other odds and ends Im sure Im leaving out.

    I got alot of time on my hands.

    Wow Allen, that's a pretty extensive list. I've been hacking away in my spare time (what little of it there is) for many many years and I doubt my list would come close! Well done!!

    You need to go help Ned on his shop.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Allen.

    Clearly you mastered the art of working productively. I doubt if i would get that much done, even if I commit!

    Congrats!
