    I went to the shop this afternoon without much of a plan other than just wanting to go. In the morning, I worked on a design for another tea light lantern, but I had my mind set on going to the shop.

    Whatever I’m working on ends up on my desk, as if my mind is offloading whatever it is carrying onto it. As the days pass, there’s less space for me to write my morning pages, rest my elbow, and put a cat who’s come to visit me. I’ll eventually hit a tipping point and stop…

  • Slowly Building an Elliptical Resin Table – Part 1

    In today’s video, I start working on a resin table in the shape of an ellipse. I don’t get very far, only finishing off the base to build up from. Still, it’s been an interesting process so far, with a few challenges to keep me thinking. This is a different type of project for me…

    I finished building a bookshelf today. It still needs a finish, but it’s built. I really enjoyed this project and am looking forward to working on more larger pieces.

    I gave my students “toilet tokens” today. Last night, I printed off some miniature toilets on my 3D printer and each of my students in one of my classes one. I’ve had enough of them leaving class every single day.

    We moved furniture today. Of course, I woke up late so we were delayed getting started. The plan was to go over last night to get things ready but we never made it. I fell asleep after work. I was out. Cold. By the time I woke up it was too late to do much…

    I slept in the bed alone last night. I thought it was going to be glorious. I’d put my iPad on the bed with a show playing on it like I used to, I’d sleep on the lefthand side like I use to, and the girls would join me like they used to. It started…

    I bought HSS chisels and a bench grinder today. Using them scared the shit right out of me.

    I was up until 3 am this morning, taking photos of pens. I wanted to make sure to get some pictures before delivering them. This afternoon, we made our way over to Bill Miles for Men to deliver 18 pens.
