Quick Poll

Stressed to impress!Let’s face it, getting out into the shop is fun.  As woodworkers, we take the money other folks would spend on golf clubs, fishing tackle or bowling balls and blow it on miter saws, hand planes and cabinet scrapers.  We could spend hours standing in the same place in our shop using a belt sander to flatten a poorly glued end-grain cutting board (don’t ask, that’s what I was doing all day yesterday) and actually enjoy it.

But, as is often the case, we never get all the time we want doing what we love.  All of those little obligations that we agreed to – or were agreed to tackle by others – tend to soak up the time we would otherwise spend creating masterpieces in the shop.

So, this week, I’m trying to see what the greatest obstacle is to you getting more shop time.  Is it family?  Work?  Something else….

  1. Although I voted for money, I could ID probably half that list that tend to gang up on me to keep my woodworking at bay … but I’ll add to the list my disorganized shop/garage that is in desperate need of reorg so I can actually accomplish something (honey-do or otherwise:)).

  2. I chose something else but it’s more like many of the above.
    – Honey do list.
    – Kids activities.
    – Other hobbies.
    This goes on and on. But I always make some time to get in the shop. Even if it’s just to clean up.
