I just completed yet another hutch. After each one I say not again! So heavy to move around and a lot of work. Yet here I'm doing another?? I love what I do taking something and making it pretty is fun! What is not fun is having this almost OCD behavior where I drive myself crazy for perfection! My son's GF came over this morning to have coffee with me and we went out to the workshop. I had told her the hutch is almost done just need to put the hardware back on I said nonchalantly. HA! I wish that I could of just done that and walked away! No I got out there and I saw a couple spots I didn't like so I dragged out the sander and what should of been a 20 min thing turned into an hour and twenty minutes! She finally told me you need to walk away! You are a perfectionist's! The things I saw as flaws she couldn't even tell what I was talking about. Why do I do this? Drive myself insane? Put every ounce of energy and strength into these projects? I know I'm not the best at what I do. I just want people to love it as much as I do.When it leaves my shop I know that person loved it as much as I did! That is the greatest feeling! Knowing you bring something into someones life that makes them smile when they look at it or use it. That is what drives me.
Now if I could just master the picture taking! This was a very heavy piece so I lamed out and just drug it to just outside my workshop!
So am I they only one out there who does this? Doubt it!
