In Episode 14 of the Avid Woodworker Podcast, I wanted to discuss woodworking balance. I don’t know about you, but my order of priority in life is faith, family, work, woodworking, health, and podcasting. There are sometimes that I wish I could either move woodworking above my work in priority or actually make woodworking my work. But without the work part, I don’t have the money for woodworking.
There are times where I have put woodworking above everything, only to hear about it later from the family. You heard in an earlier blog that I have been putting woodworking above my health, which contributed to me getting to sick last year. I am working on that, but for now, woodworking has still been ahead of my health. I need to find a better balance here. Or, perhaps combine woodworking and health by using only hand tools.
