In the latest issue of Practical Woodworking-June/August 2013
There’s something magical about the word ‘weekend’. If we are at work, and however much we might enjoy what we do for a living, by the time we get to Wednesday we know we are halfway towards the next weekend. In our imagination those Saturdays and Sundays are filled with sun and laughter, but of course the reality is all too often grey skies and family disagreement. If we are retired, then we will still probably be living lives skewed to the weekend, out of sheer habit, the only difference being that squabbling kids may well have been replaced by lovely grandchildren. But the point of this ramble is to congratulate ourselves on having a weekend retreat. When the weather is a disappointment, when the rest of the world just gets a bit much, thank goodness for that space to do woodwork, whether it is a dedicated workshop or a garage.
