Morris style glider #1: Design and adapting to fit onto glider base

My wife and I have recently found out we are expecting. Once I knew, I just had to make something for my wife and soon to be child. I know it is great to have a rocking chair in the baby’s room to rock them to sleep. I have always liked the look and movement of glider rockers. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to build one. I got the core plans from Wood magazine’s issue 112. I followed the plans for the chair pretty much exactly. Due to the low p...

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally #4: Halfway point

08-06-2014 01:41 AM by Monte Pittman | 15 comments »

As written by Snoopy, “It was a dark and stormy night”. Ok, I was having my best day of the rally and mother nature shut me down early with rain. What’s a little lightning to a few hundred thousand bikers. Day ended with this Leading to this Yes 1-1/2 hours to get across a 3 mile town. Day 4 was slightly better, but still not great. Day 5 was starting off with a bang, but cut short. At least I am seeing hope. Not quite at the break even point. Thought it wo...

It was a better day, better crowd. Sales picked up some. Lots of talkers that they would be back later in the week. The morning started slow again, but I was prepared today.

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally #2: Day #2

08-02-2014 04:20 PM by Monte Pittman | 16 comments »

Day 1 was lethargic for everyone. An estimated 100,000 bikers rolled in yesterday, but nobody was spending any money. Weather is nearly perfect for the event. It’s supposed to stay in the mid 80s with minimal chance of rain. Booth looks a little better this morning Although the Buffalo Chip Campground is designed to be a very Comercial venture, I want also give them credit for honoring vetrans, Other things sponsors bring, yes Budwiser is a sponsor Gates are ...

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally #1: Preparation and opening day

08-01-2014 07:56 PM by Monte Pittman | 24 comments »

Obviously I have been posting numerous things getting ready for this. Although I have lived my entire life around the rally, I have never attempted to have a booth at the rally.

It’s estimated that 60% of the people who come pass through there at some point during the event. The number of peopleeexpected this...
