    You Know You're Between Projects When . . .

    You spend the better part of an hour at Rockler and come out empty handed.

    - or -

    You realize the kitchen table MUST still be there 'cause all that stuff CAN'T just be floating in the middle of the kitchen.


    - or -

    Even YOU notice the house needs dusting.

    - or -

    Earlier in my career, when the jobs I did were often smaller than some,now day commissions, I might actually be unemployed 50 to 100 times in one year! When I didn't have a job to start, or one to work on for compensation I was unemployed. That might last for 2 weeks or 2 minutes but during that time and still now but not so intense ...my thoughts... what I did had no real value or nobody really liked my work or for that matter... Me! ...I might need consider a career change "what can I do?" I may never get another job!!!!! Well, those are my 'between the project' thoughts. Oddly enough, I did get more work, people do respect what I do and "You know, People like me"! (Stuart Smalley) At least that is what I think because I am working,.

    I restore another machine............ but that is a projects isn't it?
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    You wander around the shop looking at all the stored lumber and wonder what you can make, then walk around the house looking for ideas of what to make.

    Then you come up with an idea and get back into the shop and start making sawdust again.
