As we finish up the latest woodie project I will be changing my approach in the shop
I have a collection of set aside projects; guitars, cars and instruments that I will bring to the front burner.
I will be setting up a work in progress page called on the bench. Featuring this "side work" and a for sale tag as they come to completion, this work represents the culmination of my thinking over 4 decades of woodworking solutions.
Every piece I repair gives insight to what works and more importantly what doesn't. Every project I repeat gives insight into refinement of design and process.
It is an exciting time, I will be clearing some bench space for my own ideas and woodworking solutions.
