Shop time allocation...

Jim Matthews
Why izzit that my shop time is never alloted in equal portions?

Sawing and resawing 20%.

Planing to dimension and glue up (for parts) 20%

Joinery and glue up 20%

Fixing the mistakes of my own creation 40%!

****

My next project during lockdown is side tables from Sycamore (or Pear I can't remember) It has an amazing figure and I'm using shop sawn veneer to add the figured element to an adjacent side of each leg.

This week I learned that I should buy small bottles of glue just before I need them.

One leg is about to take me as long to make as the other three.
