NOTHING LAZY ABOUT LAZY DAYS OF SUMMER.
In between backyard camping, bar-b-que's, water parks, and a insane work load, I managed to get all the steel for the work table cut and polished, as well as a new hickory drawer front made.
The table had a pretty big chip in the left corner, so I made a contraption to hold a mallet.
Not only did that contraption solve my chip problem, but I can't tell you how much time I spend looking for that mallet when I'm working, so now...it has a home, and I think it looks pretty cool too.
All that's left is attaching all the steel, a good sanding, and a finish coat.
If I had my shop space, this would have been a 3 day build as opposed to a month.
I'm kind of over stressing out about a shop space. As great as it would be, everything happens exactly as it's supposed to. Instead of looking ahead, I'm learning to be present in the "now".
I haven't decided if I'm going to sell this piece yet either. With each step closer to completion, the more attached I get to it. Now that I have more time to stack away cash for rent, and summer side jobs being abundant, there is absolutely no urgency to put this one on the show room floor.
