The last couple of days have been spent, in part, hanging out with the cats and woodworking tools in the garage. The lamp base numbers have dwindled to zero and that means someone (ME) has to get busy. I purchased a couple of 6ft hemlock boards to create bases. After the initial cuts, I had 18 bases! Yippee! Then came the table saw. The first cuts went fine but the next setting screwed up 3. This makes me realize I really need to get my band saw up and running. It would have eliminated the major mistakes from the saw blade. Now I’m into sanding, adding an additional block, drilling, more sanding and finally staining and varnishing. Eventually I’ll have a finished product. Hopefully before Wednesday of next week! Thursday work is due for the new shop.
Since this is a new endeavor, I feel terribly uncomfortable with the whole thing. It’s forcing me to move outside my comfort zone. I guess this is where personal growth occurs, but I keep dragging my feet. People might actually buy my creations! What a foreign concept! I might get over this hurdle once money starts coming back my direction. 🙂
