I finally got off my lazy bum and did something constructive today.
I went to the local newspaper and designed an ad.
Its about 2×3 with a color picture and words which runs for 12 weeks for 67.00 total.
The paper has 3500 local readers and I will be displayed on the second page.

The woman that owns the paper just hired a writer from the KC Star and she is doing a special on me for the Summer Fun issue this next week!

They suggested that I get a spot at a local flea market to display the chairs rather than have people come to my home to view them.

So tomorrow I will make a beautiful chair, (which usually takes me about 4 days to complete, mostly the finishing that takes that long), and take it up to the flea market.

The spot in the flea market will cost 55 a month.

So for a little over $100, I’m in business.

Check out my developing FB page.

Please share this on your FB page, I need to get at least 30 likes so I can customize.

Thanks guys. I will work on one made of wrc tomorrow. I emailed Charles Neil to make sure that I could use his name and product, (pre color conditioner) in my documentation about how the chairs are made.

Just swept up all my curls and getting ready to build another chair. I found that I have plenty of cedar in stock to do it. It’ll be nice to put the hand planes away for a while.
I got my Bailey No5 and 6 along with a Sargent 14” today from Ebay.
I’d take a pic but I’m plumb tuckered out.
