  • How many hours a day?

    How many hours a day do you spend in your shop?

    Now how many do you want to spend out in your shop?

    Working for time gets in the way of how much time I spend in the shop, I do average an hour a day but would like to spend a couple of hours, lots of projects to get done, now it is yard work season as well. To many Honey Do chores as well.

      Not nearly enough!!! I rarely get to the shop during the week. By the time I get off work and go to the gym it's about 7:00 getting home. But I give it hell on the weekend!

          I used to spend two to three hours a day after work. After contracting rheumatoid arthritis I'm lucky to get 30 minutes a day, sometimes I get a couple of hours if it's a good day. Wish I could get back to a couple of hours a day. It's mental therapy. Pat
          Woodworking is Therapy.... some of us need more therapy than others.

            I try to get in an hour a day of saw "practice" after work but often don't get that much. I often wish I could get in a whole day on the weekends but actually only get in two half days.
            I agree with the above; it's like therapy for me. It calms me and makes me think about something else besides school. I'm a teacher at the jr. high level.

              I agree that this hobby is like therapy. You can escape from all the BS going on in the world for those few hours your out there.
              During the week I can squeeze in 3-4 hours before work. Days off and weekends I can usually get 8 hours in. My wife works every other weekend. On her weekends to work I have been known to get 12 hours out there. I just feel my best when I am creating. Then I also like to get done what I can, when I can.

                I snuck in a good day today. Spent most of the day outside cutting and sanding. Didn't make a lot of headway but got a few things done and learned a little more. I also enlisted the wifes help in my projects and got her interested in doing some things. (I think...) So, yeah, it was a really good day!
                Unfortunately, tomorrow I pay. It's grade book and lesson plan day. Bummer!

                  I am starting to get back in the shop more and more....I'm up to about 3 - 4 hours a day now. There was a time I spent at least 12 hours a day in there, but we were running a full time wood working business back then.

                    I spend 5-6 hours per day in the shop which is about twice the amount of time I would like. Haven't seen the golf course in months. I usually have 3 - 4 projects in various states of completion, some for an art shop and some for custom orders. Kinda takes the fun out of it.

                      Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                      And on each cloud touching the body ?
                      I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                      Thanks

                      I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                      Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                      What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                      Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
