New Order!!

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

OK  The beds went out last week.  They came out real nice.  They should be delivered next week.  I used PlyCon transport for delivery this time.  They had a good rate and the dispatcher on the phone sounded like he really wanted my business.   I was happy with the two guys who picked upi the beds.  They were very efficient and careful.

I forgot to mention last time.  I got a new piece of equipment recently.  I bought a downdraft sanding table.  I’ve wanted one for some time.  It’s one of the best investments I have made in my shop.  I can sand all day and I don’t need a mask or anything.  It keeps the air clean and the dust out of my nose.  It’s a Denray, by the way.

I ended up at about 5,100 miles this year.  I haven’t been outside much because winter finally found us.  It’s been cold.  Been riding the rug lately.  I have a nice trainer, so that makes it easier.

Now, to the title of this post.  I got another significant order yesterday.  It’s for a sideboard I made some time ago.  At least it’s based on that sideboard.  we made some big changes to it.  Things are picking up lately.  I have also been picking some smaller jobs to fill in, so it looks like I will be busy for a while.  I am also supposed to go back to work for John next week.   I have tpo admit that I feel a little guilty about having so much work lately when so many people are losing their jobs.  I only wish I had enough work to put one or two of those people to work.  maybe someday, although I do have the perfect personality to work alone.

Well, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and the new year is a great one.  Keep reading.  Thanks.
