I was reminded that I haven’t been keeping this blog up to date. Well, here’s some of the reason for that! 🙂 Been working hard to get all caught up with orders and also have a nice bunch of looms to show you at Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, OR. later this month. It’s always a great fiber event and I sure hope you’ll come by and see us if you are lucky enough be there.
What you see here is the final sanding. Now Randy gets to drill the nail holes and I’ll do the oiling and rubbing down and add the nails. The group in the front are purpleheart, a really striking wood. The little bits will become packing forks.
So I hope you’ll forgive me for not keeping up here but as you can see, I really AM busy! 😉
What are the little white things on the purpleheart diamonds?
It’s chalk marks, marking spots that need attention. A splinter or some small flaw in the wood. Purple heart is brittle and occasionally throws up a spinter when routed. It’s just to remind me to sand it again.
