Wow, I have too many projects going in at once
This may not be a lot by other people's standards, but for me, 4 things at once is a good bit. Boy, I'm enjoying it though.
First I have my work bench torsion box top that I have began, but before that I already was working on some custom trim for my front door, and I still need to finish it up as well. Last night I hit another solid lick on that and made some of the detail trim to go on the bigger trim pieces. It is by no means an elaborate design, but for my level of experience and skill, it is a solid exercise for sure.
Aside from that, my wife's friend has a wind chime that a the wood pieces had weathered badly and needed redone. I just finished redoing the one we had here at home. And my wife showed it to her since she had originally given it to my wife, and she mentioned she needed hers done also, and of course I got volunteered.
Now today at work, I was cleaning out the work shop area and ran across a dry erase board in nearly unused condition to be thrown away, and I recalled how these can be used as a surface to make a bare bones router table, and of course I want to try it. I don't have the slightest need now but it seems like a fun thing to do and maybe I can sell it for a few bucks and get some skills and knowledge in the process. I won't start this until I have finished the other three things though. I already made all the wood parts for the wind chime repair. That only took a couple of hours from layout to finished. The door casing is close to finished, and the work bench becomes top priority as soon as the last piece of door trim leaves the top of my temporary bench top. The head frieze board is all that's left, but it has to have some lettering engraved first.
After these things, I have a long list of things I want or need to make. The router table is totally not needed since my purchase of the Kreg table. I just thought since I have the table, now it will be much easier to make other tables, and be very precise while doing it also.
