I stepped out of the corporate world on the 26th of July 2013, we moved from Katy Texas to Lead, South Dakota and I have rented a 600 square foot shop in Deadwood a small town with a lot of wild west history. My shop is just three blocks from Mount Moriah Cemetery the final resting place of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane.
I have stepped up my woodworking game and have ventured in to other types of media such as glass, leather, tile, mirrors, cork, cardstock, etc… Along with the usual tools in a woodworking shop I have added a CNC machine and a laser engraver. I will be working on building my business these next couple of years making products to sell to tourists and the bikers that come here for the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (Sturgis is just 15 miles away). It is my hope to make enough during the tourist season so I can spend the rest of the year designing new products, stretching my abilities and making what I want.

As I mentioned in my last project post I have been busy doing things for other people and have not had much workshop time but was getting ready to get back into it. What better way than picking up 24 rough-cut kiln dried 8/4 inch oak boards, betw...
