« Part 14: round III... TBD Part 15 of 30 projects in 30 days series Part 16: obligation blogging »

Ok, the snow is still falling, but the temps are rising – so to speak. We are coming out of winter, and I’m thinking of putting the new – still not as of yet set up – shop though its paces. Its looking like a 30 projects in 30 days challenge this April or June.

I’m shooting for April, hoping that allows me enough time to get the barest essentials unpacked and set up. I just dug out some chisels for work yesterday! The sharpening station on the other hand… not ready for prime time. I suppose I can get to the table saw and mitresaw. The shopsmith is 95% assembled, but the bandsaw is DOA. Well, not dead, but in need of major TLC. I also have a “coupon” for a drillpress, dated last Nov. to cash in.

I’m also hoping for a few weeks of nights to plan out some great projects – though I suspect with my recent (renewed) interest in the pages of Make magazine. that not all of my projects will be entirely wooden ;)
I also have 5 “pay it forward” gifts to crank out, and an overdue Christmas trade gift to make. – that, and a pair of overdue bowls for Karson takes care of one week!

Of course history shows that I’ll probably get things up and working as needed, and I’ll just spend the next 30 days putting off getting ready. So to that end, I won’t intend to make and complete a project a day, but have a body of work of 30 projects started, and completed, in 30 days. Interestingly, the photographing and blogging was always the hardest part.

Anyhow, I’ve survived the move, and an eager to get back in creative business. Nothing like going from 0-60, (if not 120!) Well, wouldn’t be a lumberjock otherwise ;)

Stay tuned for details, photos and lots of sawdust!!!

Scott Sounds like a busy time. I’ll keep an eye out for your 30 in 30, I should really try one of those journeys as well to give me a focus on things.
