BloGMostly daily photo updates of goings-on at the shop. Sometimes a surprise.
I really enjoy #justintonation , but my job usually requires me to squeeze into #equaltemperament when it comes to tuning. Getting the Hz to match up on this mandolin this morning. Counting my cents!

The @thesnootyfoxteashop is one of my favorite Duluth businesses. Apart from their great tea and kombucha, they have another specialty: caring about their customers. I always feel a little lighter after a visit. Thanks, Snooty 🦊

I credit running my own business for many things. One of my practices is taking stock. It’s so easy to just keep doing things the way you’ve been doing them simply because that’s the way you always do them. Sometimes this is not problematic, but often it keeps a person stuck and stops them seeing a whole new possibility. So, I try to take stock of how I run a business, how I do a refret, how I sharpen a tool. Sometimes I’m given the opportunity to restart at square one and build a better way. So, I try not to fret! #refretday

I use #waterstones for the bulk of my sharpening, and even resort to a @tormek_sharpening station for reconditioning damaged tools – which I often pickup at garage sales and junk stores. This morning, putting a quick edge on a few tools for the day using this trusty ceramic stone I’ve had for more than 20 years, and a strop I made when I started Rosewood in 2003.

Shot of the bench from when I’m really “in the zone.” No time to clean, got to keep moving forward! Also, listening to a great podcast @intractablepodcast for a fantastic summing up of the conflicts in Israel and Palestine. Good for Americans to know about World history too! @andrewregula Finish goes on this week!

Michael’s @seagullguitars case had an unfortunate encounter with a dog recently. The guitar suffered no injuries though!
