I've been working on a seasonal tree prototype for a few months now and I finally got caught up enough to make one for the shop! It is always such a pleasure to making something new and unveil it. I'm always surprised by what things sell immediately and what things stick around in the shop for a while.
I am taking a break until June from woodworking to focus on my family and spending my limited free time doing the important things that have been neglected for the last six months...like laundry and taking showers. In June I'll reassess how I feel about it. The seasonal tree really represents how I feel about all of this...the passage of time means it is time for a change and new growth.
