Tick Tock

I know that time has slowly been ticking away and I have sorely been missing my time in the shop. I wish I had a fabulous excuse like I was studying abroad or out on a creative sabbatical but that's just not true. The plain and simple truth is that when we moved into our new location someone failed to review the electrical box and that someone was me. So the tools and unfinished projects have been languishing in the cold while we sorted out the electrical situation and frittered away the winter with the excuse that it's too cold to work. Yeah...you heard me...too cold...

Anyway, life is returning to normal, the sun is shining and more importantly those little projects that have kept me away from the shop...like having electricity to run a few pieces of equipment are all nearing completion and I should happily be back to making piles of saw dust in the next few weeks. The first project to finish work on is actually one I discussed in an earlier post "curvey lurvey" I honestly don't have any clue what I'm going to do with them after they're finished up, but I'm sure I'll come up with something. The biggest issue is that once they're done, I don't have any plans for something new yet. I have a few projects that I've been kicking around for a few weeks/months but nothing that has really jumped out and said AH-HA. The closest is an adaption to a Gatling rubber band gun I made a few years back as Christmas presents for my brothers. I've thought about producing them for sale but they proved to be so time consuming that I'm not sure that I could produce one cheap enough that someone would be interested in buying it. I think I'll post up a few pictures and maybe a youtube video to see if there's any interest.
