Profound Woodworking Conundrum
This is incredibly sad, lately I have been hit with the dreaded PWC. No not a wayward personal water craft, but Profound Woodworker Conundrum.
Its just there is so much taking up my time, from foster parent classes, to rustling up some cows, to figuring out where I am going to cut wood next, to just plain family gatherings, that my time is...well...fragmented at best.
Right now I have a few hours I can go into my shop and get things done, and I want to, I enjoy woodworking, but its so frustrating because I know I don't have time to get anything meaningful done. So my projects sit idle. In the meantime I start something and fail to finish it. Like my shoulder plane that needs just a bit of work and it will be done. Or my dovetail saw that needs far more work, but with idle hands is not getting anywhere. Then of course there is the Engine Lathe I started to build...
Over the past few weeks I have walked in there several times with a few hours in which to work and just mopped about. No real drive as I know it might be days or weeks before I can get back in there.
Can anyone relate? Does anyone else suffer with this, or is this just some sort of woodworker's block that I have that is indeed rare? Does anyone have a cure?
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
