Today’s post is going to be a short one. (I know – I ALWAYS say that!)
I awoke a bit early today and I want to take advantage of the day. Yesterday I didn’t get to work on my ballerinas at all, as there were many other things that came up and before I knew it the day was gone.
I did get to do some scroll sawing yesterday. I had several orders for wood pieces and I was happy about that. I really like that side of the business because it gives me an excuse to get a little dusty and enjoy the process of creating wood pieces for painters. Being a painter myself, I try to take the utmost care in preparing the wood pieces for others to use. I know how I like MY own wood pieces to be, and I try to make the items I send the highest level of quality.
I think it was probably a good thing as well to step away from the project for a day or so. It gives me a little bit of a different perspective on it and I already have some other ideas for the ballerinas.
I did want to mention though that it is “official” and that Keith and I will be conducting several classes at the Northeastern Woodworker’s Association Showcase that will be held on March 29th and 30th in Saratoga Springs, New York. You can read more about the showcase HERE.
We will be hosting four – three hour classes that will cover several techniques of scroll sawing. This is a ‘hands-on’ class, so everyone will be making a project while learning. I love teaching this way and look forward to seeing everyone and sharing information on scroll sawing. We are going to have a great time!
I should have more to show you regarding the project tomorrow. I look forward to getting lots done today with my early start.
I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday and hope you have a great day!
