I'm back! It's been five years since I posted on this here blog. Much has happened since I've been away. Just passed the quarter century mark this past year. It is strange reading the ramblings of my little twenty-year-old self.
Like I said, it has been a while since I last wrote. Over the past couple years, I was in Boston and got me an eddycation in the fine art of making furniture. During that time, I had another blog chronicling the various projects I was working on. If you are interested in what I was up to, here is the link: http://anewadventureofaverydifferentsort.blogspot.com/
I really enjoyed the furniture-making. It is pretty neat to take a piece of wood and turn it (whether on a lathe or not) into a piece of fine furniture. Probably the best/worst part was attempting to absorb the vast knowledge of the instructors. And the smells: the rich, nutty smell of walnut; the sweet, yet light scent of maple... mmmmm.
Anyways, I have decided to start the blog up again to document my attempts to instruct myself in the art of upholstery. I did take a class at an upholstery shop when I was in Boston, and we did do some slip seats at the school I went to. Not sure how regular the postings will be, but I will strive to be somewhat regular in recording my progress.
