  • New Focus and a message

    It has been a long two months of no stick making. I am going into withdrawals. But I have completed all my other carving commissions and I will just work on my carving sticks in the upcoming year. I have always enjoyed making sticks and Sticks have become my passion. I will clean up the shop and clean out a lot of wood and stuff that has nothing to do with making sticks, just keeping some basic wood working supplies.
    My family wishes all here and your families the
    Merriest Christmases as well as a wonderful 18!

    I have to clean up my shop also......before I do anymore carving. Not sure I will get into wood pile and down size....yet. But the shop is on the list for tomorrow . Then get going on the next commission......I know what you mean when you look at other projects that you rather be doing. But cleaning, organization and wood inspection is a must....for all of us. Have a wonderful holidays!!!

      Consider saving the chips for the fire place or logical use - compost?. I keep chunks I saw off but not blade slices. I have some in the house for our first fire - likely this weekend. Drawer full of small to large flats and blocks. I have a 1/4x4x16 that I took out and will use it in my next series of educating carving. A new series for me after Christmas. A number of smalls were used to patch or make smalls for presents... Just a thought - I know a good ole clean-out does the mind well. I have the same for my big shop - 30x30 feet but my carving station in this building is semi-clean.
      Merry Christmas to all and to all a Happy Holidays. Martin

        I took a good look around my hobby areas and recognized several things (like half a ton) that I have not touched for five years or more. Time for them to go. That will make a huge difference in both work areas- two car garage and half the basement. Along the lines of resolutions, which I will start next week, I have promised myself to put some time in every week on knifemaking, whittling, and renovating the house.

        Meantime, there is merriment to make, nog to drink, food to eat. Happy Holidays all.

          I too will be cleaning out my shop and rethinking the things I'll concentrate on carving this year. Merry Christmas to you as well, Randy, and all of my good friends here on the forums.

              I hear ya Wayne. Strange group fer sure. It would take me till next Christmas to plan out how to approach that task and then another 365 days to accomplish it. I'm comfortable with the clutter so I'm good to go. Merry Christmas Randy. All the best of the season.
