It’s been a while since I posted and I thought it was time to say a few words about what’s going on. Briefly, it’s a change of direction. I’ve spent so much time on my computer over the last 14 years with The Kneeslider and so little time in the garage that the need to make a change became overpowering. The last post I wrote, about fixing things, was a tiny hint of where I’m heading, but it’s really a lot bigger than that. There’s an enormous wave of makers out there, young and old, at every skill level, building incredible projects of almost every kind, some simple, some complex and a few are unbelievable. I can no longer watch what they’re doing without taking a far more active part. I’ve got so much to learn.
More than that, we’re living in a golden age of affordable tools with incredible capabilities making it possible for you and I in our home workshops to do amazing things, as long as we’re willing to put in the time to learn new skills and master those tools. I plan to add a few, work hard, practice a lot and build projects of my own. I look forward to sharing my progress along the way and maybe inspiring you to jump in and try some new things yourself. My list of potential projects continues to grow and goes off in all directions, so I need to get started.
Long story short, I’ll be in my workshop for the foreseeable future. I’ll still check my email or any contact form inquiries you might have, though it may be a while before I get rolling to the point where I have something to show you. I’m not exactly sure where this new direction will take me, but I expect it’s going to be both interesting and challenging and I hope you follow along. Now, enough about all of that, I’ve got work to do!
