Back to woodworking!
I feel great, because I sat for the written for the Missouri Court Interpreter program yesterday, and got home just as the sun set. It was a gorgeous sunset, with very few clouds, but amazing colors. It gave meaning to what I accomplished – I feel in my bones that I passed the exam. But I have been wrong before. We were told the results of the exam should be available by December 18, 2011. I will definitely keep my fingers crossed, and will make the announcement right here, on the blog, regardless the result. But I hope I pass.
What now, then?
Simply put, I am dying to get back in the shop. I want to be away from the language dictionaries for a little while. I want to make something! Or use something new.
In fact, I have a brand new Leigh R9Plus dovetail and finger joint jig. I will use this jig; USE it, and get to know its soul, what makes it tick. And I will push it, to see I can make with it.
I will publish results some time in November. Stay tuned!
