Sound the trumpets!!!  I believe he is complete.  Once the customer gives the final okay he will be on his final journey home.

With each project comes it’s own unique trials and tribulations.  Each project is a learning experience.  This piece has been no exception.   Brandon is a perfectionist and his number one priority is to make his customers happy and we hope that the customer is very pleased with the results.

Many projects have been waiting in the wings.  There are new designs waiting to be completed.  There are so many ideas……so little time.  Having a demanding day job and having a family that likes having you around :-) puts a lot of demands on Brandon’s time.

I do know that it is a priority to make some much needed improvements to the workshop so it is comfortable at any temperature!    When it’s stinkin’ cold outside the workshop  just won’t heat up enough and you cannot carve with numb hands!  Then when it’s too hot (not like that happens too much in Ohio) it’s pretty miserable.  Improvements need to be made.  This too will take time but it needs to be done!

It’s all just more to look forward to ;-)

It’s been a long time since I have posted an update so here is a quick run down on some of the works Brandon has been working on.

First is the progress on the Mountain Climber Figural Nutcracker.  It’s down to the detail work and lots and lots of sanding!  It is really coming together nicely…

Brandon also had some restoration work come through.  One was a Groden in need of much restoration as it is very old and has been infested with wood worms.  There wasn’t much left of this guy.  This is how he showed up here….
