A Gallery of Unfinished Work
Some time ago I wrote a post in which I bemoaned the fact that I had too many unfinished projects and I was getting quite tired of “tripping over them.” A reader asked if I’d show a few of them (probably to determine the depth of my procrastination). I was talking with Les and he agreed that, as we are now “men of leisure” (retired) and no longer driven by the profit motive, it’s very easy to concentrate on the aspects of woodworking that we really enjoy, while subordinating the more mundane, all at the expense of project completion. So in something of a “confession” we decided that we’d both show the world how easy it is for a couple of old guys to get distracted. (I’m secretly hoping that this will be the impetus for a renewal of the discipline required to get these project out of the shops, finally!)
Obviously, we’re not going to run out of work anytime soon. That said, I’ll leave you with two parting thoughts: Getting older is not for the faint hearted. Finish one thing before you start another.
