Deadlines are critical to working. Without one I let jobs slide for days, months, years. I have no deadline to fix my house and therefore I get little done on it but basic maintenance. The big jobs I am still considering. So too with furniture projects. Without a deadline, most of us let the idea simmer on a back burner for a good long while.

Our Mastery students have had this Thursday’s show date as their own deadline since beginning the program. Displayed this Thursday at the Studio from 5-8pm will be their Signature Pieces. This should be a great collection of the work of our Resident and Distance Mastery students. The only stipulation put on their design was to have three drawers in it. It is always a great surprise to see what folks come up with. Please join us in celebrating their work and their accomplishment on hitting this deadline.

This Signature Piece was done by Brad Ewing for last year’s show. A knock-out Drafting Table. If you’re in the area, please drop by to see the work of our graduating Mastery students. It promises to be another great show.
