The Camper Series

March 8, 2008

I have a week to think of what to write as the ‘cabin’ which is really a camper has no computer. Or running water, and at least a dozen times this year me and a gallon of water have froze. Anyway…

I have titled the series of mantles that I am currently crafting as the “Camper Series”. The best news of all of this is I can fit a 6 foot 8×12 in the pop up camper with me. Good company, doesn’t complain. This allows me to work on the mantle in close quarters with where I sleep. There is ample time to connect with what I see in this mantle and I like waking and seeing my thoughts and spirit engraved the night before.

I will continue the ‘Camper Series’ as long as I stay in the camper, sort of a comemaritive. I will probably finish the first one this week. C.S. # 1 as it will be engraved will be the bait that resides in the back of my truck. Try that with your scrollsaw patterns. It will be stained and show ready but as you can imagine, getting banged around in the back of the truck don’t hurt. This way, when a customer calls it is much easier to show what it feels like. Keep that in mind those who are really curious.

I will also be placing an ad in “Hills and Hamlets” a local Leipers Fork magazine so if your in that part of Tennessee in April you can pick one up, it’s a classy little publication. I have resized the photos for easier website vewing, let me know if it is still slow. Keep those orders comming. If your building, the early stages offer the best flexibility of product. But if your almost done I can usually accompany your style.

Distressed beams look great in a ceiling above a fireplace. I can easily create a package of distressed beams and a mantle. They will balance and reflect each other well and it is a rare opportunity indeed to have this kind of custom art embedded into your house. Also truss fabrication, braces, and grill station headers are available.

Thats the story for this week tune in again next week, I think I’ll begin explaining my Grandfather. Keep carving it out.
