A few weeks after posting “Cool Fall Morning” I decided to listen to a few friends and follow their suggestion to create some folk art furniture/pieces to take a local Atlanta market in early Dec.. To be very honest, the switch to less exacting work coupled with the prospect of thinking up some new ideas and bringing them to life sounded like fun. And fun it’s been although it’s gone from a two week diversion to several weeks and running. Many reasons I suppose . . . opportunities to meet up with old friends and to make new friends, coming across some really interesting wood (like the greenest poplar I’ve ever seen and steam-bent oak wagon wheel stock) and more. Below are some pic.s of one of the pieces.
Getting back to Bike #3, the new schedule/plan is to send it on it’s way (renamed as Production Bike #1) in Mid-March . . . which is kinda fitting as that will be approx. one year from the date that P-1 first hit the road.
Have a Fun New Year.
