MY BACK HURTS!One of the things that gives me pause is the fact that after just three hours of woodworking today, my back hurts. It was three hours of frantic work - barely stopping to even sit down more than a few minutes. I don't know how the pros do it: standing at a workbench all day long, running boards through a table saw all day long, and even worse: sanding all day long. Yikes!
For sure, I could do some things to help my situation like back exercises (I do them from time to time), mattes for my concrete shop floor and taking longer breaks, but if I were to do woodworking full time, I would be at my workbench twice as long as I was today.
So, I have my work cut out for me. Before I can become a pro woodworker, I have to get my back in shape. Wish me luck, now where are those pain pills...
