Who knew when I went from driving 1 to 3 hours a day to work I would be in more danger during my morning commute by walking 100 feet from my front door to the door of the workshop! The ice storm a few weeks back, followed by temperatures I can barely fathom, has created an ice rink across our entire yard and drive. I feel like an elephant in stillettos trying to navigate my way without falling and injuring a wrist - or worse! I have joined the throngs of other workers who are on their feet all day long by purchasing a pair of "man clogs" (as my son jokes, rolling his teenage eyes) and without crampons strapped to the bottom, I would not make the walk safely. I am anxiously awaiting, along with everyone else suffering through this Polar Vortex, a January thaw to melt the ice and return to my leisurely stroll up the drive each morning. Please be safe out there everyone!


Right now I am working on a custom sideboard for some dear friends of ours. It is a "souped up" version of the Farmhouse Sideboard. It has similar clean lines but adds exotic accents - quilted makore doors, curly cherry drawer fronts and ebonized tenon pegs. I will show the completed piece in my next blog.
