Well, I had one of those days where things just fall into place and you can't really ask for more. Clayton scored a bunch of wood for me which I should be able to get my hands on soon and I connected with a kitchen decorating/supply store in town and will be making pieces to sell in their store. I took a mortar & pestle in that I made out of pear wood and the owner loved it. She was actually disappointed that I only had one for her to put on display and wants me to get more in ASAP. Needless to say, I came home and made 2 more that I'll take over in the next day or so after I apply the wood conditioner. She also wants bowls and other kitchen items-looks like I need to get moving! Unfortunately, I am now out of pear wood for the moment. (Anyone need a pear tree cut down? I'll be happy to do it if I can keep it-cherry, apple, maple, plum will also work)
That's about it for the moment. Have a great day & remember, pears taste great...pear wood, not so much.
