Starting new project. Worked yesterday in real cold weather. Just to cut parts for a wishing well build. Parts ready for assembly. Started assembly found angle on miter gauge was wrong. All that work for nothing. I went under the assumption that last setup was for an 8 segment octagon .
Sounds like regular life to me as well. Trying to rescue some expensive frame material by putting a half inch strip of purple heart around the inside perimeter of the frame. Could NOT manage to cut the strips even, and couldn't find any additional stock without heading 60 miles down the hill. Wasted many hours searching. I swear I saw some in a bin at HD.
I swear I saw a box of thin stock there that had some purple heart in it. But I couldn't even find the box! I'm heading down to Rockler Saturday and will pick some up. Then I can finish up the project. I have a backup plan, but the painting and frame cry out for purple heart.
Whew.... your definition of a 'bad day' and mine are much different. Messing up a project is a 'normal day' in my parts. Having a hemoglobin leak as a result of stupidity or distraction is a 'bad day.'
Glad your bad day wasn't that kind of bad day! As for the frustrating part, been there and done that too often. Just like my golf game, I may not be the best player off of the tee, but when it comes to playing recovery shots out of the rough, I'm a master. In the end, the results are surprising similar on the scorecard, I just take a scenic route.
