It’s been over a week since I posted anything. This is a direct result of having almost no shop time. Maybe I’m getting soft in my old age, but I just can’t handle the heat and humidity anymore. Within just a few minutes of being in the heat and humidity I am totally miserable. This woodworking thing is supposed to be fun and relaxing, right? So I’m going to have to find some way of cooling the shop if I have any hope of getting anything done in the next couple of months.
Luckily, in this instance anyway, my shop is small (8ft x 12ft) and it’s very well insulated. So my choices are window, portable or mini split AC units. The mini split would be great but its way too expensive. My widow is the crank out flavor, so window unit would have to be installed thru the wall. Portable AC units need to be vented to the exterior so there is that little issue. I’m still weighing the pros and cons but will have to make a decision soon if I have any hope of getting some shop time.
I did manage to get all the oak panels for the end table tops and shelves surfaced. They are ready to be sized and given a final surfacing. Then there will be staining and finishing. I may actually be able to finish this everlasting project….eventually. I’m also working on the next detail for the Hillbilly Tansu and hope to have that posted in the next few days.
