What new year projects are you planning?

Happy New Year to all members of the Workshop community. I hope this year brings exciting new adventures and much happiness for all. 

 

I never fail to be impressed at the power of community. How everyone has unique experiences and insights they can share. And I’m constantly impressed at how generous people can be in sharing their time, knowledge and expertise with others. Check out the Top 10 Workshop projects of 2017 if you want some great examples. 

 

Holidays can not only help recharge the batteries, they can also provide some time to plan the year ahead. I suspect many in the Workshop community have spent time in recent weeks thinking about new projects around the house and garden, maybe even picking up a tool and getting started. 

 

What projects are you planning to start in 2018?

That's always a worthwhile project @Cooks76. You might like to check out this previous discussion - deck renewal project.

 

Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the Workshop community. I trust you will receive plenty of helpful advice and inspiration from our members. Please post anytime you need a hand.

That's annoying @Brad. Sorry to hear that.
