workshop day 1 [Jul. 14th, 2008|02:46 pm]
Doug Ayen
Well, today was a "sharpening tools" day. Not that there's anything wrong with that -- its a necessary part of being a craftsman, or even a craftsman wannabe.

I knocked the impending rust off the face of the good anvil with the belt sander and some 220 paper, and polished up a couple of hammer faces that had gotten dinged up. Filled up the slack tub. Moved some tools off of the floor and onto shelves. Moved some stuff from the house out to the workshop. Looked at the clock, realized it was almost time to head to work.

So, not a whole lot accomplished, but something.

Rocky Horror, to go back a couple of posts, was good, if a bit slack on the audience participation bit -- a few people were chanting lines, but it was hard to make it out, and there was often conflicts in what to shout out, or when. Overall, though, it was pretty good, and the virgins with us were all pretty well entertained by the show.

I wasn't feeling great during the show, probably something I ate or a stomach bug, and that lingered on until late Sunday, which made Sunday a bit of a wash.

Maintenance tonight, maintenance tomorrow night, then nothing scheduled for a bit. I might not make tomorrow or Wed's workshop hour, depends on how these go.

As suspected, last night's maint went late, then I had to get up in the middle of the night and fix things a couple of times, then it was time to go to work. No workshop this morning.
