Last week, I asked you all about how you approach the task of finishing. As I may have guessed, you had a lot to say! You can find these comments in the Feedback section of today’s Weekly. I was impressed by the variety of your choices and your logic behind the finishes. All I can say is, keep it up. It seems like you are doing great!
Now let me introduce you to some new partners with the Journal. The family-owned lumber company, Lumber Capitol Log Yard in Cogan Station, Pennsylvania, has agreed to work with us in a “learn about lumber” effort. They will write an article in the Journal (about cherry in the May/June issue) and then create a video about milling that species. It is a family business with mom Teri and daughters Emerald and Jade running the log yard. Dad, son Judah, Grandpa and their pooch Roxy round out the team. Check out the video below to find out what I am talking about.
