          Depends on the mood,

          Right now, I have no space and feel confined. I don't like it and spend less time.

          Soon, hopefully, I will have more space and will get to enjoy it more. (To be continued)

          Regards,

                  Shop Time

                  During the summer months I'm lucky to get in the shop once a month. I do a lot of design work out at the camp in the summer and then spend about 6 hours a day in the shop in the winter cutting and staining what I've drawn. I was able to spend a few days in the shop this past week because we had to be home due to an illness in my girlfriends family. I do miss my saw in the summer!!!!
                  If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

                    I normally spend 20 - 30 hours a week in the shop plus another 5 or so designing so you didn't have my choice listed there. It gets worse when I have a show coming up, I've put 35 - 40 hours in over a weekend getting ready (I work a regular job as well).

                      for me Pete. I wish i could spend more time, but my hand wont let me scroll as much as i would like, but then when i have a project, poor hubby, ask me if i am ever comeing in I'll put a roast in the crock pot, and he is lucky if he sees me for days. I have many hobbys, but this one holds my attention most the time. the only thing that holds me back sometime is my hand, after many hours of cutting, then i just have to stop. or die. LOL. sometimes i have to wait for my wood, and then mill it, then try to keep it from warping, then it is wood-loc time, and then the waiting again. I have many projects i wish i could do befor my time here is gone, and i get obsessed with them. I wish I would have had a saw in my younger days, but now i am old, and i have to do what i can do while i can. when i am not scrolling, or gardoning, I am in here talking about scrolling. now i am trying to break a filly, got on here last night for the first time. what a sweetie. now that might hold me up alittle on my scrolling. we are trying to get are horses ready for packing next year. and i am excited for that too. sooooo, I think I should start scrolling at night. poor hubby. but then he is a woodworker too.

                              I try to go every chance I get so it depends on what is happening or if I take a sick day and the only medicine to get better fast is shop time, or what I'm working on, or how tired I am so I would think the average is 6 hours a week.

                                Cute Pattern.
                                I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                                This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                                No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
