Feeling a bit under the weather..

..the last couple of days. Hence the lack of posts. Still have the last NAHBS post to finish up which I'm hoping to get to soon. What little energy I do have has been spent working on another silly rack I came up with night before last. Hoping to have it done in the next couple of days. I think this one's going to be even more of a fucking hassle than the D+D rack!

I kinda have a love/hate relationship with those kinds of projects. It's like, you think of an idea that's really rad and you're super stoked to start working on it. Then when you actually get down to the nitty gritty you think to yourself- Oh fuck, why do I continually have to do this to myself over and over again- this sucks!!

However, what I've learned about projects like that is in the end, they're totally worth the effort. So, I'll push on with this one and hopefully won't drive myself too nuts with all the friggen mitering I have to do. WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE HOOK ME UP WITH A DRILL PRESS OR SOMETHING ALREADY??! Man.. Having one of those would make my life infinitely easier.. I'll focus more on acquiring tools soon enough tho..

In the meantime, here's a couple of kick ass big ass frames for those of you who are tall as fuck:


























I'd SO totally get that shit if I had money to blow :-(

1. The way you describe starting projects is exactly the way I feel about racing. For the record, I've never road raced, only cyclocross, mountain bike, and alleycats. Every time I hit the first wall of "what the fuck, why am I doing this??" it takes major effort to push through. Usually it's worth it though, as long as you don't blow up before the good part.

2. Go buy a cheap drill press already! Lyle's was under $300 brand new. Seriously.

Oh man yeah, you're SO right! After I get back from the Yamaguchi School I'm going start perving out on and buying tools :-)
