    nothing to do

    this is the first time since august of 2006(when I first cut my first piece of wood), I have nothing planned, no woodworking in the works, nothing, nada, zip.

    Is it physically possible to suffer withdrawal symptoms from stopping a hobby?

    My wife tried to help me today, she gave me a list of errands, bank, groceries, 99cent store, hang 2 pictures, but I finished that by 10 am, and thats it for the to do list for her.

    Im stumped. I might have to get dressed in non sawdust looking clothes(during the daylight hours), and go to a movie, or a museum.

    Im thinking I might have to go buy a bunch of pressure treated and get started on making parts for next summers chairs.(this was something I was saving for mid feb when the snow keeps me home alot)

    maybe Ill read a book.

    Have thought of building an organ. It should keep you busy for a while, least it is me.

    jeff-pen kits are for the cold winter time when I wont go out into the garage/shop
    Paul-although I think they are super cool and unique,it doesnt hold alot of interest for me right now.
    guess Ill have to rearrange some lumber storage and make a few drawers for my planer cabinet.

    Maybe you can get that table finished for Brent? That might hold you over for a day or two!

    Sounds like a good time for some sketchup tutorials.

    Reluctantly, with all my spare time this week and next, Im going to spruce up the shop a little.
    Not my cup of tea, as I dont care what it looks like in there as long as my tools work.
    couple of drawers stick, and I need to add a few to a cabinet.

    Possible conversation:

    boss: whatcha doing today?
    you: not much!
    boss: that's all you did yesterday!?!
    you: well I ain't done yet!

    You could build one of them tin can shop heaters I posted in off topic the other day. Might let you put off making those pens for a while longer
