The Urge To Create

Wishful Thinking!

As if scribbling on a blog every so often isn't enough of an outlet...

I'm being poked & prodded by my subconscious to get off my lazy arse and start creating things.  I've got about 2 dozen unfinished projects laying around, everything from leatherwork to plans for a street-legal Viking longship.

Where to begin...  where to begin...

Well, let's make a list of the realistic projects and see where we go with it in 6 months or so.

1) Finish knife sheath

2) Small mill/lathe for turning out oil filter suppressor adaptors

3) Old 70's land yacht for fixing up and weekend cruising.

4)  Buy single stage press for rifle calibers

5)  Buy lead molds for bullet casting/start collecting wheel weights/lead scrap

6)  Work on unfinished fiction projects

7)  Consolidate trio of humidors into something manageable, and retire small "Igloo-dor"

8)  Clean out home office, set up for having guests occasionally

9)  Complete haft on Cold Steel knife.  (Note: buy Dremel or belt sander!)

10)  Organize library

OK, that's a good start.  Now, I'll be lucky to do 2 out of the 10.
