Got home from work early today. A little daylight left – a little shop time before dinner – and a chance to get cracking on my next shipment off to Mountainside Gallery and Gifts, near Mount Snow in Vermont. My work was accepted in there a few weeks ago, perfect timing – pre-Christmas and pre-Ski season!!! Check them out online, or apr├ęs-ski!

And I’ve already got the good news that they’ve sold a few pieces and that I should please send more!


Here is the first of the second set, Desert Ironwood and stainless steel. A LONG AWAITED sister to this one I turned a few years back (during one of, if not my first ever, 30 projects in 30 days experiments – Oh, and it sold almost immediately – though I’d have been more than happy to keep it.) I love this wood, but it’s a little hard to come by, so YES, I’ve been hoarding it. A little more info on the stoppers and the wood at my original project post on Lumberjocks.

update: while copying this post from my blog to put up here (wow it been quite a while since I’ve contributed anything over there, or here). This puppy was sold… So now I’ve still gotta start getting some stuff made to ship off. (What a problem to have!) Do I smell the start of another project marathon?

Great to hear that you have your projects in a shop and that they are doing so well. Your projects are always a treat to look at.

Thanks for sharing
