Usually, after a long and complex project like this one, I’m glad to see it go. You know, time for the next one. This one was different. It’s been in the works for about six weeks, involved a lot of old and new skills, and everyone in the shop pitched in … I give Will the credit for the turning, carving, fussy inlay fitting and finishing; Trevor gets the credit for the complex cnc work on the headboard and walnut overlay with the inlay pockets, and Sam, well, he did a great job with the metal shaping and patina work … I’ll take a little credit, for the CAD drawing of most of the ducks and for leading the parade, but it was overall a shop wide effort. Jim pitched in too but mainly his job was to keep our other projects truckin’ along. The clients were happy today and I thank them for their trust in us to commission and support us on a challenging project like this. Whew ! I’ll also miss the ongoing duck puns … ducks in a row, all ducked up, just ducky, duckin’around, what a bunch of quacks … and so it went … The whole project was a great one
