The finish will be the same color as the walls. I’ll have it mixed up in a lacquer because that is what is easier for me. I’ll be...

What’s happening in the shop for August 30, 2010. Just got back from the IWF show. It was a lot smaller than in the past. Usually there are three buildings. This year there were only two. Some of the companies I make a point to see each year or ones that I planned on seeing weren’t even there. I went with the intension of buying a line/system boring machine for shelf supports and fixed shelf attachments points. I think I talked myself out of it and will go with the Festol...

She saw our beds a few weeks ago while they were being installed and wants us to build 13 daybeds for them. I traveled 3 hours up there on Thursday. I didn’t go just for that. I had some ladders to move at the Chi Omega house and ...

I don’t normally do prototypes, but when your doing several beds you may want to work out the bugs before you get into mass producing the parts. It’s a prototype and a selling item. I haven’t really sold the job yet. I’m pretty sure I will and if I don’t, I’ll leave this on on the showroom floor as an example of my work. I always need more of my stuff in our showroom. This one will probably stay on the showroom floor. This is finished with a standard ...
