good day in the shop

This afternoon I worked in shop getting some more wood things ready for the studio shop. Here are three hand and dish soap holders just before being oiled. I love the different shades of the woods. Most of the woods are ready to go onto etsy so I will post when they're up. Hope everyone is great!

Harriman Ranch Weekend

We headed down to the Harriman Ranch in Idaho for a weekend of cross country skiing, cooking great meals, and hanging out with a great group of people. The Harriman is really an oasis. The compound of a few cabins, a large community house, and a really large bunk house are about a mile's ski in. We reserved the community house for cooking, and general hanging out and the bunk house for bunking. There were about 30 of us and it was a great time.

There are miles and miles of trails. Ben, Becca, Sara and I took a ten and a half mile ski on Saturday afternoon.

Here is Becca skiing away from Ben as he is taking pictures of the swans.

And a barn, just like they say; a post with a barn sure beats a post without one.
