the shop: work is piling up

I don't know where the energy comes from but some days I just keep going. Yesterday, in spite of a heat wave (I just waved back), I cut and sanded lumber for several hours, then placed birdhouse stock all in a long row before calling it quits. I think having a large fan - on full blast - near the workbench really helps.

["Eight barn board houses all ready for assembly"] 

Small, medium, large, extra large. Two of each, aka singles, duplexes, triplexes and quads. If it looks like a lot of lumber, it is, and that's without the bits and pieces required to complete the ever-popular full-on trim package.

["Single birdhouses, minimum 7 pieces each"]

["Quads, about 30 pieces each before trim"]

Today I will make the pile disappear by assembling the houses, adding trim and carting them off to waiting shelves in the basement... and by keeping the fan on 'High'!
