Quick Poll

Time!  Time! I need more time!

Wrangling the hands of timeThere are few more common refrains heard from woodworkers.  OK, maybe measure twice, cut once sort of rolls off the tongue a little better, but the complaint that many woodworkers have is that they can’t get into the shop enough to do everything they want to accomplish.

The day job.  The family.  Those obligations we agreed to.

For this week’s poll, I need you to take a long, hard look at how much time you spend in the shop during an average week.  And, yes, I’m aware that some weeks are so busy, you forget to eat and sleep, while other weeks turn into full-fledged shop vacations…

But, on your average, typical week, how much time do you get to cut, plane, pare, shape, turn, sand, scrape and finish your creations?
