Wednesday Woodworking – Priming Trim

One of the last projects on the caged garden is some trim pieces to cover the wire.  I milled the pieces to width and put on a coat of prime.  That took up all my shop time for the weekend.

Who would think that painting that would take three hours.

  2. I wish Hubs had a hobby like you Andrew… Retirement is looming large and I can see him in my crystal ball firmly planted on the couch with the TV on and Twinkies in his hand. Oh, the humanity!

    We recently stained some patio furniture and I couldn’t believe how long it took! Painting is tedious! I can’t wait to see your garden.

    When I’m painting, the surface to be covered always doubles or triples before I’m done. How does that happen?

  6. Prime Time is my least favorite time. I agree with you about clean-up interrupting the meditative flow. Oh, well…

  7. Put your music on and time to just get into your own little world.

  8. Painting can be a meditative process, but then abruptly cut by clean-up duty.
