I haven’t posted lately because I have been concentrating on a pantry cabinet I have been making. I need to have it done in three days and I am not going to make it in time. So I have been spending some quality shop time but nothing else. I haven’t really had any time to post here or on Google Plus. Plus my birthday is on Saturday and I have been out to dinner twice this week! Once with my mother and the other with my wife. My bride and myself went to a movie place that you can eat dinner in your seat while you watch the movie! I thought that was rather cool. I was surprised at how economical it actually was. I thought the food would be pricey and not very tasty but it was comparable to any other beef joint around.
Anyway, I have been “slaving” away and it is coming along just fine. The reason that we are not on schedule is that for some reason I had gotten a lot of orders in the exact same week I had planned to start the cabinet. I had put off starting the project until the last minute because my shop is small and I didn’t want the cabinet in my way for a month. Everything was going according to plan when all of a sudden we got slammed with 9 different orders and a line on some barnwood. The barnwood deal required a couple hour drive each way and a few hours of talking out the details plus some time loading a few pieces to take home to see what I could do with it. That cost me a day and then a week to the other orders and all of a sudden with a few really cold days here in March, that were not anticipated, I am falling behind. Funny how your best laid plans always go asunder.
I am hoping to wrap this cabinet up only a few days late. I had planned this weekend for finishing but I think it will have to be the middle of the week and then a delivery on the weekend after. I called the client and they are perfectly fine with that because there remodel has gone late also and they really do not need it anyway as it would just be in the way. So all works out in the end anyway. I would have liked to have it done and waiting so I could say I was on time with all my projects but you win some and lose some. At least the client is ok with it which eases my mind a bit. So there you go my reason for not posting. As always “If I can do it so can You!”
