Finally Completed Router Table
Finally after over a year of not being able to play for much over an hour at a time I finally finished construction of my much needed (or) wanted router table. I know I made plenty of mistakes and even wondered after I did something, why did I do that. It is amazing now at how much your body and mind goes through after such a life operation.
I guess I need to explain. I was really overweight and had uncontroled dibeaties. My Dr. gave me only a couple options, lose weight or die. Well faced with that, I did try every diet known which all worked very well for a day or two only instead of losing the pounds, I gained more pounds. I was nearly 300 pounds. In poor health but very happy and felt like I was on top of the world.
Well olmost 2 years ago, it will be two years on April 10, I underwent a gastric by pass. I was cut on April 10, and on April 11, I was released from the hospital diabetic free. I lost over 100 pounds in a year, I went doun to 163 pounds where I still am and have plans to stay about there. I have not gained all my strength back yet and may never be as powerful as I was but that does not bother me. I do get very tired by the end of the day and when I hit the bed I instantly fall asleep.
I never missed a days work except the two days I was in the hospital, the Dr was not happy with me as I was supposed to not go back to work for two weeks. I did not nor could I do anything really phyisical but most of my job consist of instructing or explaining how some things work (can't really go into what I do) on military aircraft. After a few hours at work, I was really spent and full recovery is really slow.
Well enough about why I was out of my shop for so long, I do get to spend more time out there now I also am very carefull when using my tools, they are much more powerful than I am and sharper too. I find I really have to think about what I want to do, much more that I did before. I make more mistakes now, it's a good thing that woodworking is just a hobby. Robbie
