So Long 2016...

Thank you for your support!

As I sit here drinking a cup of 1320 coffee (damn good coffee from a damn good friend-CHECK IT OUT!), from my 1989 Hardee’s mug, listening to Morrison Hotel by The Doors, I can’t help but think back on 2016 and all it has been. I had some ups and some very serious downs but, more importantly I have been fortunate enough to stay busy throughout the year with custom commissions. For that I am grateful!  

This year I also embarked on the never-ending journey of saving trees from waste and milling them into live edge slabs. I've talked about this before but, it might be the most important aspect of my future business. Being able to work with a piece of wood that I have controlled from initial milling to a finished piece of furniture is something that not all woodworkers get to do. It is incredibly exciting!

Thank you to all who have supported me in this venture by allowing me to build you a piece. Without you, I couldn’t continue to do what I love. Thank you also to those who have helped spread the word about my work and supported me in that way. Without your sharing my work, I'm not sure I would be able to secure as many commissioned pieces. 

I've made 70 pieces to date in 2016, with a few more finishing up before the year is out. These pieces ranged from complete dining sets, desks and coffee tables, to custom designed shelving (which was a first!). This is all due to your support!

Overall 2016 was a great challenge to say the least. I am thankful for the opportunities the year has brought and yet more thankful to be moving forward into 2017. I hope you’ll stay with me throughout the next year and continue your support! Who knows what the year will bring!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
