Houzz it going?

Hope it will be going well. Stepped out and added info on Houzz for locals (and others) to see what can be made from rescued trees. Projects Have the walnut mantle before shot posted for a project. Learned a few things getting that mantle material to the homeowner. Really need those kilns set up, the Read More …

Targeted Press Release

Another publication. Statewide distribution. Low numbers. But since I’m leading a utilization break out session at the NAA/NNLA summer field day next month, maybe it will give me ‘expertise’ status. After all, It will be 40 miles from home. Hope it spurs some of the arborists to check into SCORE resources for their business. I’ll Read More …

One of the other things I do

Back in the day, I fought wildfires for the New Mexico State Forestry Division. I was an Engine Boss. And on the District I started on, I was Queen of the Hose Lays. If there was a way, I got water to the fire. Now, I’m not talking the large ones you’re seeing on the Read More …

I was going to take the mill to the County Fair. A contract gig (more on that tomorrow) and lack of liability insurance for demo has changed my plans this week. Hope everyone is paying attention to their hydration and drinking lots of water. Have you also been dreaming up an item or two we Read More …

Where I currently live and work, I am not considered an expert. But I’m not from Read More …

Beauty

Is in the eye of the beholder. We’ve all heard it. Whenever I see chicory I think of a coworker in Virginia that brought in a bouquet of chicory for the conference table where we had staff meetings. Now considering this was close to 30 years ago the most I remember was making a comment Read More …

Another parade

Geneva Days Parade to celebrate our Nation’s Independence Day. And I forgot the flag, grrrrrr. Had conversations with a few people after the parade about either logs they have or slabs they want. Too bad they were repeat conversations and not new leads. But we planted the seed. Ordered some maintenance items and an alignment Read More …
