Up and running

I finally got my bandsaw unboxed and put together. It cuts like butter; so satisfying. My jigsaw is great for small projects but there's nothing like the satisfying hum of the bandsaw for large-scale happiness. The first day alone I was able to catch up on a stack of projects that has needed doing for months: two mirror backings for antique thrifted mirrors and shelves for the guest bath, and finally a large wooden mount for an artwork I've been prepping for for a couple of years. I can also begin to build my own frames and boxes for my sculptures so there ought to be lots more trickling into the shop soon. I love making and sharing my work and the flow of creative ideas seems to be returning.
