Got Grit?
Got Grit?

Here you see the gritty grin of a person sanding beautiful wood. Cherry, at this moment. Every piece of wood you are about to see came from a tree. I say this because it has never been so real to me before. Such a simple idea, yet so much work! Trees are not smooth, nor are they beveled or cut to size. That all had to be done piece by piece. Not complainin’. Just es’planin’!

At the end of March, we had some guest-workers. Meet Vickie and Kevin.  C’mon, let’s get busy!

There’s Kevin, helping plane some wood.

Planin', not complainin'!
Planin’, not complainin’!

The Altar piece has been the center of attention for some weeks, but other jobs are calling. Here’s Vickie getting gritty with the antique light fixtures. Go Vickie!

And we sent Kevin to the corner…to sand the floors.

You've been very very bad!

But the floors look very, very good!

We had a nice visit with Kevin and Vickie, but the weekend came to a close and the Altar Piece was still not done.

Thanks, guest workers! See you in a few weeks!
