On 1/3/2006 2:56 AM TrailRat mumbled something about the following:

You never seen that TV commercial about adult ADD? First time I saw the commercial, I thought to myself, "Isn't that normal? Doesn't everyone's mind work this way?" It never occurred to me that most adults don't have ADD. I do think it has helped me as a computer software developer and admin though, because I'm usually involved in about 20-30 projects at work, and if I waited until each one was completed before I started on the next, I would be so far behind. Instead I work a few minutes on this project, a few minutes on that, etc. and am able to give progress reports on every project.

    --I've got "fast track" projects and "slow track" projects. Trouble is they're kinda all mixed up together.

Do you mean how many am I actually physically working on, or how many I wish I had time to get to?
At the moment, I've got one big project going and two smaller projects. Well, I had to build some things for the big project, so I guess I had another project there, but that's over with. And the two smaller ones could easily be finished, if I took time off from the big one to actually finish them, so...

I like having two going at once, usually in different phases so if I get tired doing joinery I can take a break and do some finishing for example. Course right now it's all jewelry boxes while I try to finish up some very late, overly ambitious xms presents. A pair of matching jewelry boxes for my sister and neice - out of bloodwood and soft maple. Taking about 4x as long as I budgeted (in progress pics here if anyone cares: http://gallery.acerbic.org/album25 ) mainly because the bloodwood is a total bastard and beats the hell of out of my not so great handtools. Gawd, I've spent as much time sharpening chisels and plane blades as I have cutting wood. Not working with this stuff again for a while, need better tools and more practice.

Yeah my project list itself is pretty disorganized and always subject to change. Since I'm still pretty new to this hobby I want to make practice items first before commiting to the real thing. Here's what I got going on or will have going on soon, in rough order of priority:
Active: xmas presents: Knife Block for Mom (needs finishing); Bloodwood & Maple box #1 (needs a bottom, needs the lid attached and needs to be finished) Bloodwood & Maple box #2 (needs to be started (all tools need a sharpening first))
Maple and Walnut box as a surprise, non xmas gift for my girlfriend.
In the Pipe:
Small corner unit entertainment center - practice project, going to a buddy who will pay for the wood and hardware needed. He's cheap so probably a poplar body with ash for the top.
Blanket Chest #1- practice project for me to keep, thinking maple and walnut.
Small breakfast table for girlfriend's new apartment Coffee table for girlfriend's new apartment Blanket Chest for girlfriend.
Breakfast table for me corner unit entertainment center for me, to replace giant wall unit I have now. ---------------
Of course the priorities will all change once my girlfriend gets moved into to her new place and starts wanting furniture... I think the breakfast table will probably go up to the top of the list pretty quick :-> Cheers,
Josh
