These peg holes had been widened too much. I turned some hard maple into tapered plugs today. After they are glued into place, I’ll re-ream, do a little finish touch up on the fresh wood, and tune to pitch.

Every three weeks I spend a day doing a deep clean of the shop. Sweep, vacuum, mop, organize, make improvements. I also check out my power tools to make sure they’re tuned up and clean. It’s season change too, so there’s tasks that go along with that as well. Anyhow, today was the day! I didn’t sleep more that two hours last night, so I’m plum tuckered. #deepclean #sleepmaintenanceinsomnia

After almost two decades of 60-hour workweeks, I’m down-shifting. I have a massive backlog of repairs to get done for clients, and I plan to focus on finding the bottom of the pile. I’ll still be taking new jobs, but selectively. I’m not quite sure how it will all work yet, but I plan to start opening my repair books on a month-by-month basis. I’ll take only a limited number of incoming jobs and close the month’s books once I reach the threshold. I am forever grateful for the bounty of work that comes my way; it’s more than I could ever have imagined (or can complete on a timely schedule!)
