One of the goals Nick and I have made for this year is to spend more time enjoying life. For the last five years we've put everything we have into building the woodworking business. It's been a good thing. Our business has grown and we now have clients who come back to us anytime they want a high quality cabinet or piece of furniture. We're doing it our own way, which after a lot of hard work has begun to pay off.
But that hard work has meant not a lot of time for ourselves. This year we are determined to change that.
The first thing we did as a kick off to our new year was go see some Christmas lights. It's something small, but it was a nice break from the hours of work.
It's called the Lucy Depp Light Show. Six houses get together to put on this show and I have to say it was pretty impressive. I'm looking forward to seeing what they have in store for next year.
That doesn't mean we've been slacking when it comes to work. The woodworking shop is as busy as ever. We've been working on two podiums for a client.
Both podiums are curved and a chocolate brown color. There is space in the top for microphone equipment as well as holes to feed the wires down through the podium.
We started making podiums like this for a client four years ago and they've come back several times since for use to make more with various changes.
Today Nick stained all the parts He'll be applying the lacquer finish and final assembling this weekend.
These podiums take around 40 hours each to build, but the end product is quiet stunning.
