I don't believe that I am slower than the average woodworker, but maybe the problem is the priorities when it come to woodworking .
The majority of my projects have some degree of woodworking or carpenter work in them. But eventhough I have a pretty good idea of what I would like to complete first, things don't always end that way.
Various things tend to get in the way of my projects, some of them beyound my control.
Of the bigger projects; I started installing a sawmill which went along rather smoothly untill the winter suddenly appeared with frost etc. That sort of ended the posibilities of casting concrete until we had a period above freezing point again.
I then started the workbench which made some OK progress untill I had to produce some sawdust for the horses, so they had something on the floor in the stable.
That took about a day.
Then my wife urged me to finish the cabinet for our youngest sons room. So I had to process some wood for making shelves and a vertical divider as well. This project clearly overrules the other projects.
So the result is, that I have a over cluttered (messy) workshop.
On top of all this, our middle son has rediscovered his interest in woodworking, and have made a list of things he wants to build..
Right now he is making a fish shaped trivet, and off course needs a little assistance now and then.

The first glue up of four shelves for the cabinet. At least I get to use my new workbench. (the tenoning jig was put there to add some weight)
So how about your projects? Do they just slide through, or are there similar obstacles that pass them on the priority list? (Work doesn't count like an obstacle).
