I had another of my famous "retirement" projects on my assembly bench without any progress since last October. I was racing the winter weather and an October 13th surgery date. I did manage to remove the patio metal roof, replace the damaged soffit and paint the new soffit and facia and get the patio metal roof reinstalled 2 days before the first winter storms.
Then I had my cochlear implant surgery and it effected my equilibrium. It's only in the last couple weeks I felt confident enough to start walking on a treadmill again.
I bought and assembled a new scroll saw for the wife last week.
Today I went back into the shop to work on the oak entertainment center for the first time since last September. It took a couple hours to figure out where I had stopped, what to do next and get started. I began dryfitting the full extension drawer slides and the 6 drawers and the 4 sliding shelves. This will allow me to calculate, measure and mark where the European hidden hinges should go on the doors and drill the doors. Then I will dry fit the hinges and doors. I have 2 pieces of molding to make and install before some final sanding and start finishing.
It felt good to be back in the shop woodworking for the first time in 4 months!
