Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?
Sorry for the disappearance; it was nice getting emails from readers wondering if I got run over by a Zamboni or something.
My day job exploded with overtime when a third-party contracting company was found to be a <insert polite word for fraud>. As I'd peel layers of the project's proverbial onion back, I'd find more massive bits of ugliness requiring rework or plain restart. When I go to the shop to work on Angle Madness, I like a big chunk of time to record and figure out the complicated stuff; tiny bits of shop time don't work well for that. Plus, I was kinda tired.
So, I apologize for the disappearance, but I also didn't want to bug you with a "hey I'm busy" posting.
Further, mid-May, Michael Fortune will be conducting a chair and table building class here. I recently took a class with him back in November that was more a lecture/seminar class; after this blog posting, you'll get a dump of some of the interesting things I picked up in that class.
I have been working on Angle Madness with limited time; I have numerous finishing experiments in place, which should be fully recorded soon.
Okay enough about this... next up, what I learned from Michael Fortune back in November's seminar lecture!
Oh, yeah, I hung around with Frank as much as I could without, you know, being weird. You learn stuff from close proximity. A week after the class was over, I received this nice gift in the mail... thanks, Frank!
