It's too cold to be in the basement... my fingers are almost too stiff to type!
This is going to put a crimp in my plans for what I was going to get done today. *sigh*

What I'm doing tonight:
- Plasticing off a workspace in the basement so I can make sawdust without it getting everywhere.
- Putting up lights in said workspace so I don't cut my fingers instead of wood.
- Replacing some floor boards in the kitchen where we took out a doorway.
- Finishing the boards if I can.
- Putting a second coat of paint on the study closet (first coat currently drying, [livejournal.com profile] prosicated put that one and 2 coats of primer on already).
- Processing and posting like 30 pictures to wrap up my (as usual) neglected NaPhotoMo. (I've shot lots, just haven't made time to process/post.)
- Eating dinner.

Sleep might factor in there too, although perhaps not until it's technically tomorrow.
Now off to it!

I spent last night in the basement finally digging in to some woodworking that I'd been meaning to do for awhile.
A few weeks ago I made a sent of shelves to be a shoe rack by the front door. Used one sheet of plywood and some glue, came out pretty darn well if you ask me.
Last night I finally dove into finishing off the bass that I've had parts laying around for forever. Sanded and stained the body, it's hanging from a rafter down there drying today. Tonight I'll throw a coat of tung oil on it. Also made a new pickguard for my fretless which I've had the wood kicking around to do for almost 2 years now. Put the first coat of tung oil on that, I'll do a second coat tonight.

It's just so freaking satisfying to come up from the basement knocking sawdust off my shirt, and seeing the water run brown when I wash my hands off. I've been missing that a lot lately.

I have two to-do lists for woodworking; household items (mostly furniture) and musical items (mostly basses). So here's a list in ascending difficulty of what I have slated.
HouseholdMusical
  • Coffee table
  • Ashbory bass
  • Bench in kitchen
  • Elec. upright bass
  • Bedside Tables
    (with builtin lights)
  • Custom bass guitar


  • And I leave you with:
