The spirit is willing...
Just a note of thanks to all the helpful and inspirational folks on this forum.
After an extensive period of planning and scheming, I finally made the first cuts on what will be my first frame. With all the competing priorities of life, it will likely take another six months to finish, but I'm still pretty excited.
Thanks for sharing your passion.
Good luck. Keep in mind that every framebuilder gets frustrated from time to time.

I'll also second unterhusens comment - don't let the inevitable bouts of frustration get the better of you.
