Sconce, Delayed

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.

Mmmm, Paint?

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?

  1. That sconce, even without the glass, looks very good. If it doesn’t fit in the hallway I can find a spot for it on my porch.
