Getting that fuzzy feeling from doing a good job

What a stunning job - well done!


#22

Stunning!! You deserve to be proud of yourself! :two_hearts::+1:

Thanks Ariel. To be honest my self confidence took a bit of a beating when I worked for my “friend”. It was ok at first but after about 5 years he was always critical of my work, telling me it was not how he would do it, even though the work got done! I started second guessing myself all the time! I was already drinking by then so I think everything was out of kilter in my head anyway. The way he made me feel just made me drink more. Obviously I know now that was my choice, at the time, but that’s a step 4 issue when I get there. :laughing:
My confidence in my abilities has started to come back with each project that goes right. As I said I’m really lucky with the guys who I work for. They just let me get on with it. And since going sober I feel :100: more confident.

And just finishing up a peg board for the 9 year old:


#27

That’s pretty cool!
I just had to look them up cuss I thought the pitcher just had a spot. Is the cover just baize like on a pool table, or is a waterproof type of thing?


#28

No, its cheap outdoor carpeting from the home depot…


#29

I like to tinker, ive got the skeleton of a cactus that im going to make walking sticks from. I’ll post a pic when i finish one… your work on those barns is outstanding and I love those doors. I can assume you made them?


#30

I’ve just looked at portable pitching mounds on the 'tinternet. £132 for one over here. I’d imagine it could be made for £50.


#31

Thanks. Yeah made from scratch. First time doing some serious joinery.
The guy I work for has said that I can use the shop for my own stuff, so now I’ve got a bit more money I can start doing stuff for home. The wife has a loooooong list!:joy:
The only problem is doing it all day at work, I just wanna chill at home.


#32

Isnt that what they say, the carpenter’s house never gets finished…or something like that.


#33

Thats always a good thing to keep u busy to have a honey do list. Im sure it makes her happy to see your work. I feel like things you appreciate more if you do and make it urself and gives urself graditude by doing things yourself. Good job!


#34

WOWwwwww!! Love the greenhouse gate especially. The huge beams too. Stunning work. Talented man @Geo :hammer:


#35

You built a pitchers mound?! Such a great dad! So I have a very important question to ask… Who’s your team?


#36

Good question, born and raised, tried and true, 3rd generation NY Mets fan. And im afraid ill be the last of my kind as my 2 boys (12 & 9) outta nowhere decide they’ll break tradition to root for… I can’t even say it… THE YANKEES??? What?!! :scream::scream: (sounds of screams)… ok, im ok now. How about yourself?


#37

Best thing about the Yankees are there uniforms :smile: Cubs are it for me! Went to my first game at Wrigley last year. Beautiful park. Would love to see Fenway too, sometime.


#38

Id like to see both, i cant believe I squandered the opportunity being close to Boston and I’ve been to the city. Haven’t gotten to chicago, on my list, and ill catch a game there for sure (mets maybe) when I do.
Im sure you were out of you mind when the cubbies got their ring…
