Summer Months

06-27-2008 04:57 PM by Olaf Gradin | 4 comments »

Northeast Georgia is already into the mid-90’s and sawdust just seems to cake onto everything now. My shop is not air-conditioned, though I do have a window fan that helps a bit. I say shop, but really I just mean “the place where my tools occupy floor space.” It’s the garage, and actually just a storage location at that. We’re planning to do some major work out there, but I’m running out of time. My wife and I are expecting a baby girl this November an...

Le Roi est mort

09-03-2007 05:08 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

The king is dead. A few weeks back, while we sure had some fierce gusts of wind, which caused my chess trellis to tip over. And while the (wood only) joinery of my trellis survived the impact with the ground (rocks and/or pottery) the wood itself did not. I found everything still together, save for the King himself. I originally intended to reattach it, but had the quick inspiration… a little poetic je ne sais quoi… some sort of “art (or hidden meaning) is in the e...
