TRY to work on a project
and things just keep going—sideways?
My cottage-y cabinet should have been finished days ago—BUT—
I seemed to lose my “mo-jo” mid-stream,
and a satanic squirrel gave a big Thumbs down to my project.
Initially, things were full steam ahead, but then I seemed to hit a wall and was stumbling and fumbling—and, thought it best to give this project some breathing room. IT HAPPENS.
A couple mornings ago getting started for the day— I found my doors knocked over. Wt–what?
I usually clean up each night before I quit—but I was tired (and lazy) and yeah, there were squirrel footprints in the debris revealing the bandit. I picked the doors back up and got on with the day’s work.
Yesterday I was back on track, making good progress on many details, even creating a scalloped top shelf for the newest design change! But you know, the Devil’s in the Details and I wanted to line up the scalloped shelf to a certain point in the door’s fret-work, so I propped & clamped them back in place.
I didn’t notice one door was b r o k e n. FABulous. Beyond repair. . . . So I bought a new pine board today to rip for at least one new stile, and discovered that
- Wood glue and pocket screw plugs ARE FOREVER, and
- Kreg pocket screws are INDESTRUCTIBLE apparently.
