I spent all last month working in my new workshop. I built a box with mostly handtools, then as the snow piled up on the trees, it brought some of the nearby forest down, so I had many opportunities to go out with my handsaw and bring back some logs to practice carving out log tenon & mortise joints. Yesterday, I turned one day and one year older and as I went for a run, I couldn’t help but feel that despite the snow, Spring is already here, and I’m moving back to the land soon.
It’s coming down to crunch time! In the coming week, I will purchase cotton tarps to have a sheltered workspace under which to work during the hot summer days or rainy days. I’m buying a heavy-duty cotton tent because the record snow this year submerged my flimsy existing ones, and I’m assembling a team of people who’d be interested in helping me build a first house!
