Good evening fellow lumberjocks. It has been a while since I posted here because I just plain got worn out with woodworking. Also, it seemed to be taking a lot of time away from my family that they needed. It seems like all I was doing was spend time in the shop. As it happens, it was almost 2 years ago that I made my last post about my entertainment center. I packed up the entertainment center so that it would sit flat and it is still out in the shop. I am hoping to get back to making it soon, with family coming first this time though.

One reason I am starting back up is to that I can record progress and designs for things that I want to build, even if they are simple boxes for storage or other things. My favorite medium is wood, and for the most part I will make a wood storage box before I even think about making something out of plastic. So, everyone here will benefit from getting to see my solution to storage problems and maybe they can help you out also.

Another reason I am coming back is that we had some water damage to a bathroom over our Christmas break. It totally ruined the original (18 year old) vanity that was in the bathroom. We have always had plans to redo the bathroom but I always thought I would be able to do it in my own time. I guess God works in mysterious ways. I am sure I will have plenty of questions, and I will definitely blog the building of my vanity.

I am looking forward to contributing to the community here as well as benefiting from the community here.

Good luck on the remodel. Yes, other forces have brought you back to where you belong.

welcome back Rob! I too have had a big hiatus due to family obligations so I know how it feels even though the circumstances are different…

good luck with your return and finding balance in your life.
