« Part 7: A slow year for LJs Part 8 of Year Book - Sras series Part 9: Nine years and counting »

Before I started this year’s yearbook entry, I read last year’s post. I could almost cut and paste it here!!

Biggest change from last year is I am now fully retired! Took about an hour to get used to that ;)

My shop time continues to go up, and my project posting are double of last year! (2 instead of 1) ;)

Still – I didn’t get the posting done until the last 2 days of my year. I posted the Art Deco Frames and the Church Railing .

Like last year, I continue to check in every day on LumberJocks. I still find great ideas for projects and techniques.

I’m looking forward to another year – and like last year I hope to post a few more projects (without waiting until the last minute).

I do a pretty good job of getting a few in process pictures but the projects are out the door before I get a final shot.

Here’s to another year (clink)!

Congrats Steve. I’ve been retired for 13 years now and can highly recommend it. :-)
I still check the posts daily but haven’t posted much myself lately. Our focus seems to change over time but it’s always nice to stay in touch with our online friends. I look forward to you4 annual updates.
Thanks for this one.

Time certainly does fly, doesn’t it!

Thanks for all of the kind comments and encouragement you have given me over the years. I really appreciate it.

After my brother retired he said: “I have never had that busy before”

I do a pretty good job of getting a few in process pictures but the projects are out the door before I get a final shot. Please share your projects in the next year also with some progress pictures.

This year shot by.
I, like Paul, have changed my focus.
It seems I don’t post as much as I used to, but the projects still keep getting made.

Process pictures make a regularly length-ed project extra long.
I give credit to these on-line content producers.
I couldn’t do that.

Here is to another year.
