Happy Wife/ Happy Life is the motivator. The Mission- Keep my skills sharp, make gifts from reuse materials and be a source for Ed's original art work.
Upon retiring, my wife was clear that my extra 50+ hours a week at home was not to disrupt her normal routine. "You are UNDERFOOT! You can get out in that workshop and do things- OK". "as you wish" I said.
My friend Ed Gedrose, provides mentoring & artwork. Very Cool !! My pricing is low by being frugal. I buy some wood directly from the saw mill. I was gifted some fine wood by Pierce, owner of a huge Oregon company using reclaimed wood! I make frames &/or use repurposed frames and material.
