Thread: Is there a project that you have started and then put off working on and why?

  1. #1

    Is there a project that you have started and then put off working on and why?

    Mine is a cherry wood rifle stock. I had bought the wood, a big investment on my part, and then stopped because of not being sure how to inlay the action. Plus being afraid of ruining it. I've cut the blank in the general shape I want and stopped at that point. It's just a .22.

    You DO take on the most interesting projects, lady. You amaze me.

    I'm with Brett. The basement reno project I just finished took 4 years by choice… not 'cause of procrastination

    But seriously, sometimes things just get into a mode where either due to an unforseen design issue, or other reasons, things get put on hold for a while.

    I'm so slow things are in perpetual put off mode. Or PPM as I like to call it. I usually tell my wife I'm still planning it in my head.

    Remember, he never said which Thanksgiving. We all just thought it would be in this century. Of course since I live in a glass house, I really can't throw too many stones.

    Sheesh no never

    A few reasons here
    • intimidated by the next step
    • stuck on figuring out exactly how to solve a problem
    • distracted by something shinier
    • something else really needs to get done first (and then something else...)
