perserverence

hey everyone. wow, 2 weeks since my last posting, seems like 2 days. i've been investigating and implementing social media. ok, albuquerque is not the biggest city and my vision since day 1 has been expansion....global. there i said it, international. i think that is where we are all headed. it is ONE world and that concept may just be an answer to many of our dilemmas. when will we recognize that the earth is a single planet/organism which we inhabit. it makes sense to me.
i have had some challenging experiences lately, one being taking 2 of my chairs 20 miles out of town to show a couple I met 4 days prior. I had the understanding if the chairs fit their dining table they would buy. turns out, money was the issue. no sale.
i'm determined however and when i ask myself 'ok scott, now what do i do?', the answer is always 'scott, keep doing what you're doing'.

blogging.....

is quite a discipline.
ok, i have 4 marvelous looking chairs. with 3 coats of a satin finish and a 600 grit light sand, they are handsome. in fact, hans from the A store here in ABQ was by the shop today and enjoyed them. i am deciding whether i want to place them in his shop since it has a much larger customer base and, i admit, better location. the glitch is if they sell, my cut will be minimal but these are tough times.

4 dana chairs


I decided to apply a satin finish to the dana dining chairs I completed 2 months ago. My worries were that the application would darken the wood more than I cared for but it appears they are going to look great. I have a few spots of glue that were missed which isn't hard to fix, nor a big deal. These chairs, when juxtaposed create quite the narrative. Now all I need to do is start on a dining table that will be a nice accompaniment. Peace, scott
