Well I can tell you're all terribly anxious that these fine saws should have a good home to go to, and frankly I agree - it'd be a shame to only see their narrowest profile. But d'you really want to hear of yet more long-term, hardly-ever-reaching-fruition plans of what I'd like to do in terms of tool storage? Obviously there is a plan. The great and the good shall find themselves in one tool cupboard, showing themselves (hopefully) to advantage while, more importantly, being handy for use. But after a year when project completion has reached an all-time low (and that's really saying something) planning ahead seems somehow unwise.

But I will try and finish that damn saw till before January. Really I will. I mean there's the whole of December to do it in, isn't there...? Okay, so March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, and probably November (hey, there's still a day...) passed untroubled by any work on same, but I have confidence.

Self-delusion is a wonderful thing.


  1. Don't be too hard on yourself. I've been known to say things like "I can build that bookcase in two weeks...honest!" (A year and a half later, it was done.)

  2. A year and a half? Would that I were so speedy...

  3. I sure feel for you, Alf. My shop project list has long been neglected in favor of more mundane requirements like yard work and dishes. The times when I would be getting shop work done are often filled with reading your blog, which makes me feel better about the whole thing ;)

    As long as you have a plan to show the more beautiful parts of those saws, you have quelled my angst. Can't wait for the finished saw till so I can start watching for tool cabinet posts.
