Are you ready for the holidays?! I'm definitely not as I'm working like crazy getting my Christmas orders finished - from awesome new and returning customers and my family. We're really happy to have networked in Airdrie and Calgary area and my last two sales events were really great! My best seller was business cards which makes me really happy to see people interested in the work that I do!
Here are a few project photos of the work I have done over the last couple of weeks:
I just need to set aside some time to dedicate it to building some shop organization projects to get more use of my wall space. I'll do a separate post to review my new bandsaw as this post will get pretty lengthy. I'll just say right now, I love it! It's solid, is easy to set up and super quiet! More on the bandsaw to come!
All of the boxes were finished with Tung oil which gives them a smooth soft finish that is really durable. These boxes were donated to the Rotary Club of Calgary for their yearly Christmas Auction! I'm glad I was able to get them to a great cause and I hope they earn a fair amount of money at the auction.
I also got a couple of orders for important date block sets which I'm getting more efficient at building in short timeframes which makes customers happy and in turn makes me happy to deliver them! Teal coloring has been the best seller this year out of the block sets but it depends on whether the baby is a boy or girl as I've had all different color requests. This project becomes more interesting as i build each one!
I suppose I should wrap this up for now. I'll have a few more things to post before we go on Christmas holiday break. I have a few projects that haven't sold yet. Be sure to check out my for sale section to see what is left for sale if you want a last minute, awesome gift for that special someone who is difficult to shop for! To make space I'll be discounting some of the larger items to get them into your hands!
Thanks again for following my work and for supporting my addiction! I'll be writing up some project how-to's in the new year to help others who are interested to learn the process I use for building my projects. Stay frosted!
Happy Hollidays! 🎄🍷🍻🍾
A customer sent me a photo of their bottle opener in use! He told me they are at 23 bottle caps and going strong. Please send me photos of my work in use! I love hearing back from customers to see how their items are working for them! Thanks for sending this to me Mike!
