  • Nice phone call this morning

    My wife received a very nice call from a store I have been placing trivets and band saw boxes in for several months. I knew they had sold a couple boxes and I needed to replace them. Well it turns out they did better than that, they sold everything I placed there and their customers are asking for more....So I have 15 more boxes and a couple dozen trivets I will drop off to see what they wish to try in the store. Since I am not doing the Farmers Market for awhile, I am trying out these high end stores on the Island. Takes a little longer to sell items, but so far they have all sold...can't believe they are able to get the prices, but I will take it any way I can get it. Need to purchase more wood and a good flew sanding system.

    That is a good call to get. Seems like you may have to raise your prices just a bit...

        I was in the shop working about 2 hours this morning doing some finish up of a few boxes and glue ups for 4 new designs I have drawn. Wore the Trend both hours. Yea it was a bit warm, but after a few minutes, it cooled down. The fresh air blowing on your face helps. I thought when I would tighten up the head band it might start a headace, but nothing like that. You tighten and then just release it a bit...doesn't seem to slide around on my head and I had leaned over a few times without loosing it. Just have to get more used to wearing it. There is a bit of a noise with the motor running and not being able to hear the wife when she walks comes into the shop talking...but I have been saying for years I can't hear when she talks

              Good for you Larry, it doesn't surprise me since you do such beautiful work.
              What is a "good flew sanding system."?
              Regarding hearing I was also telling my wife I could not hear her then I made the mistake of leaving my hearing test results on the table which shows nothing wrong with my hearing. Busted.

                          Well I made a delivery today to the Gallery that had sold out of items I took in about a month ago. Sure was nice to get that check for nearly $500. I took allot more than I have been taking just to see what they wanted. They ended up buying another $500 and taking over $900 on consignment...which I don't mind because they sell all of it. Here I was trying to build up stock to place in another gallery the first place nearly cleans me out. It is good to see items selling once again. It is a heavy tourist area...with some of the earnings I took the wife to a nice lunch and we watched tons of Japanese and Chinese tourists walking around. At least those Countries have money to spend. Now I can buy allot more wood and get back to making more boxes...Oh yea, they also placed an order for many of the new designs I been working on while being laid up. So if I can do this, you can as well...
