Today we live in a constant dopamine rush. The endless scrolling through social media. The hours of gaming.
We’ve lost our sanity.
There is something irreplaceable about a quiet night in the shop. Carefully polishing a burl to get the perfect shine. Topping off your whiskey and leaning back to listen to some good tunes while you read a woodworking magazine.
The other day I needed to swap the alternator in a Honda Pilot. Apparently there is only one way that those alternators can thread through all of the hose and belts. It took me two hours of trying every angle before I figured it out. Yeah, I should have looked it up on Youtube. But, anymore, I like to give my brain room to work to see if can still solve problems on its own.
As we review tools and share how-to’s, hopefully they will help you on your journey.
Here’s to getting back to simpler times and quieter minds.
