So I’ve been building up coats of finish on the inglenook sconce, biding my time while waiting for the special glass I ordered to arrive. UPS still says “by end of day today”, but it’s also showing that it’s still in San Pablo, CA. I don’t think it’s going to make it today. Rats, I hate getting delayed. I was sure I’d be finishing the sconce off this weekend.
So, what to do?
I could paint the hallway where the sconce is going to go, god knows it needs a freshening up. That means a trip to Home Despot in weekend beach traffic. Ugh.
I could start another sconce, maybe a second on of these Inglenook sconces. But I don’t have enough Mahogany to make the whole think, and I don’t need a second one. They’re cute though.
I could make a storage cabinet for the shop, I’ve been wanting a place to put my finishing supplies and sandpaper. I may have enough plywood to make the main part of this, but not the sandpaper shelves. Another trip to the hardware store in weekend beach traffic.
I could spend some time refining the design for the front gate I want to make. Any time here would be an improvement… I should spend some time on this anyway, I want to build this sooner rather than later.
I won’t even list the other projects that I have in mind. Too many to think about, but most of these require that I do some design work or go purchase materials first. I could also clean up the metalworking shop and make something there. A new kitchen knife?
