I’ve always found it refreshing to take a break from the business of woodworking every now and then, especially for those special projects that involve your family and friends.
Recently, I got the idea of building a telescope for my grandson with an 8" Dobsonian reflector that he can peer into the next galaxy. Since it’s my first telescope, I’m warming up by building him a kaleidoscope.
Obviously, this project won’t help my bottom line and will take some of my income to complete. I suspect it will become a major distraction at some point, but that’s kind of the point.
