    I herby resolve

    to only make 5 mistakes on all my woodworking efforts in 2015. For the record, I made the same resolution last year and got 30 minutes into my first effort before I used up my allotment; maybe I'll have better luck this year.

    Wait! This is a GREAT idea. I will join you in that resolution.

    I assume this means that if I burn through the annual allotment by sometime January 1st, I will be mistake free for the rest of the year no matter how much I mess up!?!

    Whadda ya mean, No?

    OK, fine. We'll just have to continue as we are I guess . . . but it sure sounded good to me

    Happy near-New Year everybody.

    Heck, I can make that many mistakes and the shop door hasn't even swung closed yet.

    I think I need the "5" followed by a few commas and a train load of zeros. Oh well we cannot all be perfect like Vaughn, Brent, Bill and Steve.

    Enjoy and have a wonderful 2015,

    The only way that would work for me would be if I stopped woodworking entirely.

    I made at least ten mistakes on yesterday's project. (It's on today's 'burn pile.")

    Years ago I made a resolution not to break any resolutions that year. I have made the same resolution every year since, and stuck to it!

    Jim, you don't have to give up woodworking to agree to the resolution. Before I got a log splitter, I put a riser and a 3/4" blade on my 14" BS. I had the neatest, most precise firewood in the county. Whether or not any particular piece started out as firewood........I'm not saying.

    Years ago, I made a resolution not to have any resolutions, now I am thinking of changing that.
    I will take more then five mistakes, because for me, it would mean I have/get shop time (extra hours now, and behind on project list).
