If I've been a little quiet on the blog this week, it's because we're whomped with work. Right now we have two outstanding orders -- a modest 20-piece, and a whopping 175-piece order.
Here we're working on the 175-piece order (which came in before the 20-piece). With such a large production run, we decided to break it up. This is about 100 pieces, give or take a few.
At this stage, we've glued up the bodies.
Gluing on bottoms (a phrase that usually takes some explanation outside our family).
Letting things dry. Tomorrow is a sanding day, which usually falls on Don, poor guy.
Anyway, that's what's been keeping us busy. We're just heading into our busy season, though we never really slowed down this winter, which is highly unusual. Normally our business is dead-quiet during the winter (with the exception of our wholesaler who does the Arizona Renaissance Festival in February) but this winter has been wildly busy. Almost too busy. No break for us! Not until October!
