Sometimes motivation breeds action, but just as often action breeds motivation.
Yesterday (Sunday), I spent the evening with my dad Jake; cutting and sanding some boards that should become our next batch presentation boards for our soon-to-drop online store. They’ll become slab furniture and presentation boards. A piece that should last at least four generations if treated well (more on four generations later soon, I promise…)
Afterward, I performed some minor repairs on some leather items in the house and worked on a design for a sheath for one of my knives.
I should probably be exhausted, but for some reason, my stupid mind brimmed with ideas of what I can do next week and the week after! This is especially true given that I’ll be flying to the Tucson Gem Show this weekend and won’t have all of my tools with me. I could barely sleep.
Today, I spent the day working on the final phase of an ash entertainment center for work. Assisting the designers in the basic skill-related aspects of it and keeping an eye out for questions I have about design.
Afterward, I went home and practiced using a plunge router for the first time to cut a Mortise into some scrap I brought home from work.
Finished up the day playing with West System Epoxy and Waterlox Poly Finish on some walnut. Things are moving and that movement is helps to build inertia. What kinds of things do you do to build inertia?
