Shop time has been a bit in short supply lately. I had a couple of days off this week where I was able to spend some quality time there finally.
Sometimes a small, easy project is great to get back into the groove and get a feeling of accomplishment that you got to finish something. In this video, I make a small Christmas Tree decoration that has an accordion style to it. To make it more interesting, I adhered sheet music of “Silent Night” to it.
After a mistake and redo, I finished the project, and then celebrated in a fashion that I think Nick Offerman would approve.
