I am trying to keep my promise to myself to get back to posting when I have made progress on some of my projects. With that said, I had a pretty productive weekend and wanted to share some of what I did with you all. I spent most of Saturday working up in my shop. I had some orders to go out, and I have a large project that I am working on with another artist that I want to stay on top of and chip away at gradually. That way, by working it in with my other work, I hardly notice the time ...
Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...
It seems so long since I have posted, that I almost forgot how to do it. (Not really – but you get the point!) The past month or month and a half have really been quite a change for both myself and my business. It is a good thing, but something that takes a bit of time to adjust to, and I find that I am finally feeling that I a getting 'caught up' and doing that. It has been a busy and crazy time for me, though. Things really started to get busy when Lynne Andrews lau...
It seems like it has been forever since I posted a blog. As a person who posted a new blog nearly every day for over five years, it seems that I have been quite lax lately in keeping up. I apologize about that.It isn't that I am not busy. Quite the opposite is true. It seems that the floodgates have been opened and all of a sudden things are really kind of wild. That in itself is wonderful, but it is also kind of scary. While I am thrilled and excited about this recent 'growth spurt...
I am very pleased with the way things are going these days. It seems that many of the things that I have been planning over the past several months are all coming into reality, and so far the result has been more than I could have ever asked for. I love working with other designers. (Are you seeing a theme here?) Having a "partner in crime" that you admire and trust really does make a difference. Not only are you motivated to do your absolute best, but you also learn a great de...
View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...
We all work for certain goals in our lives. Be it personal or professional, there always seems to be something to strive for and give out lives purpose. I began my own business many, many years ago. I was in my 20's then and looking for a way to earn some extra income for my young family while doing something that I enjoyed. I had always loved 'making things' and thought that would be somewhat of a utopia for me. Justifying doing something that I love and being paid for it as...
Hi Folks!For this weekend’s project, I tried my hand at carving some wooden cutlery, just out of pine for now to practice!I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback-Shaun View on YouTube
Good day to you all. I am still in my 'organizational mode' here and I am sorry to say that I have been so busy that is has been difficult to find time to blog. Add to that the many wood orders I have been receiving (thank you!) and the fact that both Keith and I are fighting this cold/flu thingy that is going around, and you will understand why I haven't posted. It has been a crazy month to start out the new year, to say the least. Our kitty Richard is doing better, though, ...
It really feels good to get back to creating. The last month and a half went by so quickly. Between the holidays and the chaos of having my beloved pets ill, it seemed that with a blink of an eye the month of December and now most of January is behind us. I wish I could say that I was more productive. But I spent my time doing what needed to be done and taking the time I needed to deal with these personal things. I know I am working my way to a better place because there are so many idea...
