As its almost New Year, and my opportunities for woodworking are almost over, mainly due to achohol-related events, I am thinking back to last New Years and the list of projects I had for 2003.

Unstarted - Fitted shelves in the front room
Unstarted - Cabinet for TV/DVD player etc
Unstarted - Bottom half of dresser in front room
Unstarted - Wardrobe for spare room
Unstarted - Coffee table for me
Unstarted - Coffee table for sister.

In Progress - Shelves to match Bedhead
In Progress - Oak box for camera equipment.

Finished - Top half of dresser in front room
Finished - Bedhead in Oak/Walnut
Finished - Outside wood store

So basically it looks like I haven't done anything this year, although thats mainly due to the massive landscaping I did on the garden, which was every evening/weekend from February to July.

Does anyone else feel like the list of projects they have to do seems to grow at a faster rate than they can complete them?

Does Norm use a table saw? :lol:

This year has been truly disastrous for me. Not one single "proper" project even started, never mind finished. A few boxes, turned stuff and the odd workshop project but not the Coffee-table-that-never-is. Oh well, that's only the fifth or sixth year... :oops: No prizes for guessing my new year's resolution. Oh and then there's the box of rust that's accumulated. Used to be that I wouldn't hunt for more until I'd cleaned up the last lot; not any more. :oops: I dunno, why am I embarassing myself like this anyway? :roll:

Cheers, Alf

Join the club. I'm a fully paid up life member of the no time, couldn't be bothered, I'll do that next, must get started on this project etc, etc club.
But I have a tiny excuse, which is fast runnig thin. We started building our house in 1994, moved in Dec 1995 (we're talking last century here) and I think it was be totally finished in about a weeks time. About a days worth of skirting should see it complete. During the last 8 years I've also had to spend an awful lot of time outfitting the workshop. You know, cabinets, benches, machinery etc. Then, of course, when the weather is good, have to play golf and landscaping the garden, the list just goes on and on.
So, very few projects, well, no real projects in fact and 2004 is not looking good - it's loft conversion time!
Like Alf, it's so easy just to spend alot of time in the workshop and not actually do anything other than maintenance, testing tools, refurbishing tools, modifying tools, admiring tools.............

If only I'd been doing that I would have considered it a year well spent. Too much not being in the workshop at all :cry:

Cheers, Alf
Occasionally visiting the workshop just to remind the bench that I do actually exist and don't just come on high days and holidays like some obscure cousin. :?
