Last week I mentioned that I was investing in some new tools for woodworking. Namely the Kreg pocket hole jib. I had even posted about a project that I was going to work on this last weekend.
Instead we ended up running errands, installing electrical extensions, and painting the interior of the cabin. Basically I had no time for learning woodworking and did not even start the project.
Another reason I held off was that the price of lumber is really high at the moment. We are close to the last high from 2018. It looks like when things slowed down in April the lumberjacks put their axes down and started telling everyone to wear masks. The last part may not be accurate but they did cut output. Thus raising prices.
So I’m gonna start off practicing with scrap wood from other projects. Once I feel confident I’ll start spending some money. Maybe by then prices will have cooled too.
