(My usericon at the moment is the cupcake tree I made for our wedding. Flickr page here. Or search the twohyphens account for cupcake. I'm very happy with how it came out, and it's now an end table in our living room. It needs a better finish eventually, but it'll be fine for now.)

I'm starting to get antsy because I don't have any making projects at the moment. I mean, I have a couple on paper, but nothing I'm making sawdust/solder on.
This is a good thing.
That I'm getting antsy I mean.
I haven't played Warcraft in over a month and have gotten a lot done in real life. Today I spent about 5 hours putting my basement playpen back into working order, cleaning it up, and assessing what needs to be done to make it a productive work area for my current crop of projects (mostly furniture). I also snapped the blade on my bandsaw, and I think it may be smarter/cheaper to just replace the whole shebang. C'est la vie. Also going to finally need a biscuit joiner for all the furniture making, as it'll save me hours of cutting mortise and tenon joints.

Incidentally, I have a spare handheld jigsaw at. Anyone need one? It's not amazing, but it'll get small jobs done for sure.

Is this the sort of thing that might save me form having to use the saw on my leatherman tool the next time I find myself with something small I need to saw? If so, then I'll quite happily take it off your hands.

You're welcome to take a gander and decide. It might do just that for you.

Funny how that works, eh?

There's a reason why I don't play video games anymore... :(

Yeah.
Sometimes I need that outlet, sometimes the outlet becomes a roadblock.
Right now it's a roadblock. It'll come around to being an outlet again though, I'm sure.

I didn't know you made the tree! (Though I should have guessed.) It's *lovely.* I also didn't know you had a basement, so I'm just gleaning all sorts of new inahandbasket knowledge here.

My mental image of a biscuit joiner involves jam.
