Despite the fact that no furniture has been coming out of my shop lately, the shop has been very busy. I have a load of wood for turning that has been keeping me busy. I finally completed all the small commissions with only one big one to do, so before I call them to get started, I want to get as much turning done as possible. Craft Show season starts for me on April 22nd, so I need to have lots of inventory at hand and pray for a good show year!
I have some new Tiki designs in my head, and I am eager to get started on them while I can. And speaking of preparing, I also took some time to prepare for my retirement. (ha ha, like that’s really going to happen!) I bought a six month lottery subscription. Since all my luck has been used up, I got my lucky wife and my lucky child to pick the numbers. I hate to say it, but the lottery is the best chance for retirement I’ll ever get.
I do have some new furniture designs in my head that I need to start sketching out. It’s a shame that I have to make and save money to buy the wood for new designs. It has been a couple of years since I completed the Chai-Boy, and I hope it might get sold soon. The Chai-Boy and two other pieces are going to be in a gallery show for a month and half starting next week. I will miss the Chai-boy when it sells one day, but I really need to sell it.
So be patient deal reader, soon enough I’ll be back to my modern traditionalist furniture making.
