perfect finishing day…….

Most days the finish shop just plain sucks.  When finish colors have to match the samples the formula has to be exact.  I have to mention today because what happened in the finish shop was magical.  The amount of stain mixture with the wiping stain base was perfect and actually sprayed onto the corbels really nicely.  It depends on how I set I the dials on the gun to make sure the color sprays out the way I need it to. The weather outside also has an effect on how the finish comes out.  These glaze colors spraying on hardrock maple are so tedious and time consuming but today they seemed to spray so nicely……….ahhhh………it couldn’t have been a better finishing day!
All day, every day, except today I feel like I am wasting time and redoing stuff, but not today!!!

thankful for my pilgrim, my little indian, & mkia….

Jakob and Nathan are reading buddies at school this year.  So my little pilgrim and little indian got to have a thanksgiving feast together at school and at Grammie and Grandpa’s house!  They are so cute and I could not be more thankful for these two. 

I am so thankful for the 40 chef boards that were shipped out on Wednesday on time going to the Williams Sonoma distribution center for online sales!

I am thankful for a wonderfully nice winery in town “Lange Twins” that is purchasing a smaller version of our chef board thus giving me a new idea for a new cutting board.

I am thankful that when we put Jakob’s birthday present together that Mr. Know-it-All and I didn’t get into a fight……

I am thankful for the wonderful comments and ideas I get from people who visit us at the shop, brouse our website, or read my blog.

I am thankful for reading, and being able to still


got my Nate Berkus segment on you tube!

So I don’t think I have gone this long with out blogging ever.  I feel like I have been extremely lazy about blogging.  Or at least putting it on the bottom of the list which means I don’t get to it. 
If you have not seen the segment from the Nate Berkus show my dad and I were on last year here it is below!
I can’t believe its been a year already, and that it took me that long to figure out how to get it on youtube.  You know you can ask and ask for people to send you something, but ultimately you have to do it yourself.  So I took my flip cam and stood still in front of the TV and recorded the recording.  I had to do something!
I have a lot to catch up with you all and what is going on at the shop, will fill you in on the details as soon as I can.
Love that Nate Berkus!!!
