I've been doing far too many demos this summer and therefore haven't left myself alot of time to produce. It's not always easy to strike the balance between earning enough and getting to make exactly what you like and doing a bit of experimenting. Normally at demos i turn bowls. Here's a nice breakfast bowl in cherry. #polelathe #bowl#breakfast#Treen#turningwood#woodenbowl#traditional #
The last 6 months I really haven't built much stuff. Instead I made the decision to go out and get a lot of urban lumber and mill for stock ( and yes I do sale live edge lumber to the public.) I also made the decision that if I'm going to be more efficient in my time I will need to speed up production with bigger and better machines. I'm stripping the shop and redoing it for wood and ornamental metal working. My goal is to have the shop ready by the end of the month, have all my lumber setup and starting making all of the fun things that I want to. Of course I wouldn't be able to do all this without my supportive and loving wife. Being a husband, father, working a 11hr day job and then squeezing in my woodworking business can be somewhat chaotic. @diadelosmonster helps me get to the finish line, along with my friends and family. So I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for being you and being supportive with my crazyness.
I will be running content on a YouTube channel and a website soon. I want people to see my errors, success, and fun that I have. I have a few big jobs lined up and I'm going to start there. Houseware, oddities, and chaos are soon to come.
