Well, Grandma’s picture frame is pretty much all done. It is a small wallnut frame with some molding…not the kind you get from old milk.

I am really happy with them. So happy that I have decided to try selling them locally. I am going to put an ad in the local paper and on craigslist.

It is the kind of work that I really enjoy. A relatively straightfoward job with enough variation to keep me interested. I’m sure I will put up some photographs when the camera is fixed, and blog as the framing business comes together.

I have ordered some tools for it, but nothing exessive. The biggest purchase was a Wilton vise. Otherwise, I am just getting the shop ready. I built the lumberstorage triangle from shop notes 55. I am putting up somemore shelving. I rearanged the shop and am building an assembly table and a tool cabinet. Maybe I will post on the shop in a few weeks.

It gave me a chance to look over my purchases over the last year (my first year of woodworking & lumberjocks). Wow! Just amazing stuff. I feel so much more confident as a woodworker, and to some degree as a human being. and Wow! I need to be accountable when it comes to spending money. This small business will be a great chance to keep on top of myself.

Grandma’s birthday is in a week, and I am looking foward to flying home to NY.

Thanks for reading, and if you have any advice about framing, I’d be glad to hear it.
