The following is an e-mail interview with Brandon Morrison. Brandon is the owner of Whyr’Hymer Furniture in Hollywood, California. This started as friendly banter via e-mail and I thought picking Brandon’s brain might be interesting to other aspiring professionals. So here’s some wisdom from a modern artisan who’s been making it for 4 years. What do you think differentiates a hobbyist from a professional woodworker?

I told her to take my pens to work and she can take whatever she sells and put it towards a new dryer. She sold only one (1) pen for $35.00.

My understanding of all this has all-ways been to keep it very simple….K.I.S.S; and then one is able to better work within the word definition ...
Dealing with Internet Business:I haven’t had much time to blog this year. Blogging is fine, I like it, but honestly, who has time to read my dribble? I get enough encouragement to continue blogging that I make time for it when I can, but it has been awhile.
