    going through withdrawal

    Even though Im wiping a few more coats onto the last table I made, I have shut down my garage for the winter months.
    I started ripping down the wallpaper in my house, a job with painting and minor alterations should take me over a year to do.
    I find myself sitting in the garage looking at my planer and jointer, and I dont remember how I got in there.
    I sit and plan out builds looking at my wood piles and start thinking up measurements in my head for something I wont go near for 2 years.

    This withdrawal is tough. I almost took an old vice this morning and tried to make it into a pen vice to drill some blanks, but my wife called me and asked how the paper ripping was coming along, so I snapped out of it.

    Turning, flatwork, this is an addiction worse than drugs.

    my guess is that allen will bundle up really good, sneak out in the middle of the night, and fire up the lathe for a quick fix....

    Ill be cutting down pieces of wood and railings, moldings, will take a few minutes here or there for a pen or two, but no major projects until Im done with ripping, painting, a bit of minor construction, floors(not me) painting, moldings.
    I will go give them a good waxing next week.

    So why can't you hang some sort of barrier around the band-saw & lathe to help hold heat in that area & then go ahead & enjoy. Man nothing is impossible.

    no heat keeps me out of the garage during the cold months.
    Im afraid of the consequences if I put in a heating system.
