Looking good. I do like the stain. Not to dark not to light.
I am waiting to see that fretwork in progress.
Bad rain coming tomorrow. Build a small fire in your stove, take that nip out of the air, poor a cup of coffee and get after it.
Hope you feel better William.

I doubt there will be anything going on in the shop tomorrow.
First Saturday of each month is Kid’s Workshop at Home Depot. I think they’re supposed to build a wooden toy car tomorrow. I carry my little ones every month.
Also my wife and I will be going out tomorrow evening in celebration of our ten year wedding anniversary.

I have taken my nephews to that and they loved it.
Happy 10 years. You mean she has put up with you that long. ;)
Traditional 10 year gift is tin. You better start polishing that old soup can. ;)
All kidding aside. Happy Anniversary!

It looks great, William! I can’t wait to see the fretwork either. It is really going to be beautiful!

The time you spend with your family is precious. I used to do ceramics when my son was small and I wound up taking him to some classes with me. He still has the ghost that the painted there (he is 27!). Now he is working on his train set in his basement and he really does the detail work nicely. I think the early influences are the best on kids.

It is great to see that even though you do what you like doing, you take time with your family and enjoy that too. It is a great balance you have struck and something that makes it all worthwhile.

Scroll on, my friend! :) Sheila
