Update: Back After Taking A Year Off
I haven't posted anything since December of 2014. It's amazing how little free time you have when you are chasing after a 1 year old.
I have been able to build some things in the shop and fix things around the house, but there's no way i could have taken picture's and video's and posted them to this blog and youtube. To do that you need several hours of time, i only had a few minutes here and there at night to work on things. Just getting anything done with a 1 year old around is an accomplishment. The goal is to have enough energy after he goes to bed, around 8pm, to be able to quietly work on things.
But i am not going to try my best to take pictures of things i'm building and post some video's to my Youtube channel. I also plan on going back and showing some of the stuff that i've worked on this past year, including us refinishing the basement, games i built for Rhys, some jigs and sleds i built for the table saw, and working on our minivan.
But the biggest change to me working on things is the new workshop.
Because we remodeled half of the basement for a play area for Rhys, that meant that i went from 1/2 of the basement to 1/4 of the basement. It hasn't been too bad, the reduced space means that i have had to be more organized. Hanging tools from new shelves on the pegboard and hanging as much as possible from the ceiling between the joists.
I'm going to record a video and write up a separate blog post about the new shop and what i did to stay organized. Hopefully i can publish 1 or 2 things a month, but we'll see, our calendar is pretty busy for the next year.
