As some of you know and now all of you will know. Several of the magizines have been asking us about doing some articles and projects…and videos ,seems finishing is the article thing…that may change when you get the router dvd (shipping this week)…but when it comes to projects I hear them all saying “we dont want anything traditional..ie: bombes, highboys, low boys, but rather we want “Arts and Crafts”, and contemporary….which is fine by me ..I dont care…I have made a living building anything and everything it seems…but it did prompt me to question what you guys “flavor” is…for me traditional building is a good source of instruction , its is of course the essence from which all we have come to know orginated from…..but it just surprised me that its being totally avoided in the Mags….
The other thing is , from my demographics I see we have about a 65% over 50 following , which I have found that the over 50 crowd likes traditional..while the 50 and down seem to like the contemporary and Mission ( arts and crafts)..styles…there are exceptions of course.
So I was hoping that some of you would be willing to share your choices ,and likes, and tell me what you would like to see wriiten about as well as projects you would like to see…most of the mag guys follow us and if ya have a suggestion for any of them spit it out…
Well we still burning those DVD’s and filming…geez I have done a ton of stuff and got a ton more to do…as well as the clock, got to get numerous projects built…so it been busy to say the least…but then again I am thankful we are…would much rather worry about how I am going to get it done than what I am going to do….and yea it does get a bit overwhelming at times..
after the clock thing…we gonna get into some really neat stuff…one item in particular is whats called a Jefferson seed press…it is a cabinet Thomas Jefferson had and used to store all his various seeds in…he was quite the planter and experimenter ( if ya like tomatoes..thank TJ)…anyway…we have some good photos and I plan to go see it very soon…for me thats about all it takes…once I see it I can build it…The museum will not allow it to be measured and copied…but I can make “my version”…and it will be interesting to see how well we do in replicating it .Should be fun..
well back to boxing DVD’s and filming…later ya”ll.
PS.. when ya tell me about your choice in furniture , give me your age…( its ok to cheat a little)..unless you are female, in which case forget I ask
