    Another weekend is upon us, so what ya got going

    I think I'll finaly get my backlog under control. I'll be in the shop all day Sat and sunday after church. Maybe by the time next week end rolls round I'll have enough room to take on somemore. Got a whole list of folks want me to do restorations but I also have to keep in mind that soon it'll be time to start the big comission job.
    So what ya'll got planned.

    Lakeport NY and/or the nearest hotel
    Work on my son's bed
    work on my other son's desk (hope to knock them both out of my shop, as they're taking up space)

    build some shelves for storage in the tambour storage cabinet
    set up my DC
    work on my router wing for the TS

    If I get any of those done I'll be happy. It is the end of my 'production' month however, so I'll also be putting a couple of hours in on the work computer to make sure I get a bigger bonus check next month.

    Tomorrow morning helping my dad finish insulating and sheeting the walls of his shop, maybe a little time on his new lathe too.

    Saturday night, meeting with a friend that wants me to build some simple cedar planter boxes that will be used as center pieces for her wedding next month. I'm going to get real familiar with cedar planks on Sunday.

    Focusing your life on only one path does nothing but close your mind to the infinite possibilities that surround us.

    Think out side the box for the box is small, cold, dark, and doesn’t have cookies.

    Planning to make some fatties (sausage) on the smoker. Cleaning up the shop and probably planing down some oak for the entertainment center my FIL is building.

    Work on the shop build I have going on.
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.
