I hate to vent my frustrations... and maybe I should just keep quiet about it.
But do you ever go through periods where *everything* you do in the shop goes wrong? Nothing major, just stupid little things: a drawer you checked for square at glue-up is crooked when you go to install it... you try to thread a piece of wood, mess it up, try again, and mess up in a different way...
I'm going through a bad patch the last couple weeks. Now, don't get me wrong... it's normal for everything I make to be slightly off-kilter. But they don't usually actually *fail*, they just look weird. (reflective of their maker, no doubt!)
Maybe I need to drink different whisky. Maybe I'm just not supplicating the right gods. I swear to you, I went into the shop this morning and didn't even pick up a tool... just sat there and tried to think about the problem. I need a solution. I feel like a golfer who has the shanks... Didya ever see that movie "Tin Cup"?
Does everyone go through this?
