I wanted to share with all of you what I got in the mail the other day! Hardwood Floors asked to do an article on my floor now and one when it is completely finished. I am totally blown away were I find myself today! When I started working on the floor, I had no idea it would lead to anything like this…leading to making new friends and having so many people take interest in it. Now I just have to get back in the shop and finish it:). I am still working on the electrical, its a big job but be patient I will get back to the floor, I promise:).

Wow! Thanks for your sevice Nate! What a project to take on. Don’t think I could wait that long to move the tools in, but like all great things I’m sure it is worth the wait.

-- Peace be with you!

Congratulations on a wonderful article in Hardwood Floors mag. Nate. It was interesting to hear your dramatic story and of your ongoing struggle and especially the success you’ve had with your projects. I hope you will continue to get better and keep creating. Your shop floor is an amazing collection of works that you can be justly proud of. Many folks here in Norway have made end grain outdoor floors from tree cutoffs and they look really great. Please keep the blogs coming, they are always good reading.
