Not often does an entire week pass (let alone two!) without a new article here on my blog, but this month that happened. Let me assure that I am still here, and the lights are still on in my shop. In fact, I’m as busy as ever with a wide variety of projects.
There is an ever-increasing amount of demand for my live-edge cribbage boards and I am working hard to build inventory. I am waiting for the finish to cure on the latest boards so that I can rub them out for an ultra-smooth finish. (Cribbage Board #9 is currently still available at the time of publishing!)
I am part of the organizing committee for Kaboom! The Port Moody Art Explosion. It’s going to be:
“a true artists happening, an explosion of self-made fun and entertainment, a historical moment in our fair city where we bring together in one room, a Who’s Who of artists in a surprise-filled, creatively-combustible evening of art and entertainment”.
The event takes place in eight days and we’re working furiously to ensure everything is just right. (Register to attend the event here.)
As part of the Kaboom Decor subcommittee, I fabricated a pair of lighted columns for the entryway and helped create two giant mobiles which will hang from the ceiling.
At Time Warp Tool Works, we are adding two new sizes of moulding planes to our lineup. Currently, we offer #6 (3/8″) and #8 (1/2″) hollow and round moulding planes. I’m working on the bodies for the new #4 (1/4″) and #10 (5/8″) hollow and round moulding planes.
It’s pretty insane having weeks full of days that are packed from the time I wake up to the time I go to bed. Sometimes, I find myself literally running from one meeting or task to the next. As someone who finds it very difficult to take breaks – especially with an immense workload – I find it helpful to at least switch gears and do some kind of work just for fun – like taking half an hour to turn a bowl.
