One of the fun things about our Shelter In Place orders, is seeing how many people are outside walking and biking the neighborhood. Since we are in the workshop (which has expanded to being out on Heidi and Derek's driveway under a pop-up) we get a good amount of interest from all the sanding, sawing, cutting and staining that we are doing.
"What are you guys making now?" asks the neighbor. Depending on what ideas have developed overnight, we'll stop our rotary sander, aka Mr. Spinny, and give an update. Sometimes the passerby-er will offer up suggestions, like, "How about making Cornhole?" And before you know it, Derek has drafted out a plan to make the next creation.
Today's project also included product testing for our bench that we want to customize for our customers. We played around with what makes my heart happy, Go Bears, and then had to go to the dark side with Stanford. One should note, Derek has a Master's degree from Stanford, and I went to Cal. The rivalry is fierce (not).
In addition to staining our Nevada bistro table, we stained two more Tahoe coffee tables, tested out bench ideas, and got Cornhole made to competition levels.
