That is a disappointment
The Lady is away on a business trip, and the kids are on vacation -- so I took Thursday and Friday of this recent week, plus Monday and Tuesday of this week, to look after the kids.
I had **also** hoped to build my Swamp Guitar (kind of a "cigar box banjo") during that period: I mean, six days in a row of workshop time, right?
Well, unfortunately, no. I've actually spent time with the kids -- taking them to the park, taking them to a birthday party, running errands. Dad things. So really, it hasn't been four full days of shop time.
And, to complete my project by Tuesday, I would have had to finish each day with a glue-up -- and that didn't happen. Obviously, each time I glue a portion of my project, that's the end of the shift. It's Sunday night, now, and I reckon I have at least four more glue-ups to do.
So, I've switched gears: during daylight hours (when I wasn't out with the kids) I've been partly working on the Swamp Guitar; during the evenings I've been tidying things around the house, in preparation of The Lady's return. But now that I know it ain't gonna happen, I'll re-orient myself more towards tidying the house.
My fear is that my Swamp Guitar will become yet another partially-finished project.
But, hopefully I can work on it one afternoon per weekend, and get it done in about a month.
