Yesterday's lumber delivery involved rejecting some of what they sent (one board had a big split, the railroad ties were just chewed up), and I ended up gong out to the lumber yard and self-selecting a few things. They were absolutely lovely to work with, and did not fuss for a moment about sending the delivery truck twice. Northland Wood for the win, Fairbanksans. I'm pretty sure the 1x8 roughcuts they sent were rolled directly off the mill onto the truck and were just beautiful.
We got the back wall of the woodshed up last night in about an hour, and I got the old railroad tie base for the steps leveled and set this morning before the market. We have five more short walls to put up, which should take very little time, and then we can start loading it with actual wood! I am going to love it so much this winter.
Tomorrow, I'm excited to be taking a short glass-blowing class. But first, some writing, and an art release:
I don't do much custom work right now, but I'll make exceptions. This was done as a tattoo design for my awesome nephew, E.
