Working on a few projects in the shop on this New Years Eve Day. Reading one of my favorite comics @falseknees while taking a little coffee break.

Kate made a great supper and even offered to clean up tonight so I could come down to the shop to get my wood file organized. #ebony #rosewood #spruce #cyprus #redwood

The new shop is getting all tuned up. Repairs are getting back on the bench again and I’m really excited for the new flow. Thank You to all my clients who have waited patiently during this major transition in my life. Gracias.

It’s very important to learn the different kinds of wood shavings that are made when using your tools. One tool can produce several different types of shavings depending on how you wield it. The characteristics of the shavings tell you a lot about exactly what you’re doing. I’ve found it helpful to develop a vocabulary that describes their nature and it’s enabled me to refine the subtleties of my craft over decades.

Settling into the new shop is taking a little longer than I thought it would. I’m making headway though! I should be able to begin working on instruments in the next day or two!

Settling into the new shop and the new life is taking a little more time than anticipated, but things are starting to come together. Arranging the new workbench today while listening to an outstanding @bbcradio4 production of HP Lovecraft stories.
