    Do you get anxious when you're separated from being able to do woodworking when you're not at home or in your shop?

    Wouldnt say anxious. But I do often think about the project I'm working on or going to start soon

    I don't have that problem much at all. For me I just have a whole bunch of different things to tinker with, build, improve or play with that any one of them can get moved to the back burner until the mood hits me again.
    Once I start a project though, I do want to get it done before moving on, which has caused me problems in that I will stop doing everything else so I can work on "todays" project.

    I don't know that I would label it anxiety, but I do feel disconcerted if I don't get out there. I try to get out there every day for some amount of time. Tony

    No. I have plenty of other crap to attend to with a 85 year old house.
    Just keeping it functioning is anxious enough.

    No separation anxiety... just a desire to be in that “happy place”.
    Knowing the island is there makes dealing with peoples problems more tolerable.

    I haven't been in the shop for a while now. Hunting season is my busiest time of the year. Probably be January before I have the time. Sucks too!

    Maybe a little if I have a great project started and can't get to it. That is alright though because I will work on it in my sleep until I can get back to it.

    I dont know if anxious is the right word for me. More like major disappointment that I cant get to the shop. For years now I have had to settle for other projects that I can do with limited time available. But I swear that is all going to change very soon.

    I don't know if anxious is the right word but I do sometimes have moments when I have listed all the stuff I have to accomplish out there in my mind and really want to get started again.
