Different strokes!

Good evening, Over the last couple months I have noticed a trend which has led me to think about many things. I have been trying to define myself, my business, and my goals. That being said, the boys and I have been doing more and more trim carpentry type of projects. In addition we are getting ready to help out on a big restoration project. The residence was built in the mid 19th century and the original trim, doors, and windows need some attention. I am excited about these changes due to the fact that they offer a different set of challenges compared to building furniture. In the end woodworking is woodworking the only real differences are where it is happening and the materials used. Given how prevalent these opportunities are I’m thinking about changing up my marketing a little bit to better encapsulate where we are headed. Be sure to follow us on social media to see up to date pictures, projects, and details about where we are headed.

Week in Review for 11-25

This week in the shop was different than most. I had helpers for an extended amount of time. It was fun, challenging, and new but all in all it was great. If you take a look at our Youtube channel you will see that this weeks two episodes of Get Kids Woodworking didn’t have me personally in them much. I figured that the two oldest boys 14 and 10 would be ok doing the how to sections. They actually did great (in my totally biased opinion). It was kind of nice being behind the camera for most of the action. There were a few bloopers and forgotten lines on their parts but it was a good time. ¬†We hope that you can find some time this weekend to get in the shop and build something.

Thanks for visiting.
