The State of the Nation

It seems to be getting longer between blog post nowadays. Which sadly reflects longer time between woodworking endeavours.

I found myself today doing a little tidying. (What's scarier is that photos are post tidying.)

The lectern project still sits on the bench untouched for 6 months. The bunk to match the pine bed is stacked against the wall. The tools boxes are overflowing and in need of re-organisation. The timber unsorted. The planner blades need sharpening (but at least now they are removed and ready.) The dusty now containing shavings from projects I made for Christmas 2009. The steel bins full but scraps still on the floor.
