Yesterday was a full day of Freeman Furnishings work, which meant pedal to floor all out all day! Here’s what was accomplished:

Wrote previous day’s blog

Edited video for Instagram post

Ran to hardware store twice for supplies

Finished 3 sets of coasters

Applied last coat of finish to 1 serving tray

Sanded and applied oil finish to 1 piece of resin and wood wall art

Sanded 1 set of coasters

Dyed 2 sets of coasters

Applied first coat of dye to 1 serving tray

Sent out 3 invoices

Set-up Des Moines Maker Meet-up event in Facebook

PHEW…need to take a few moments to catch my breath, and maybe drink one of my favorite hard ciders, Cherry Crush, made by Wilson’s Orchard…..YUMMMM.  Now, was this everything on my to-do list? No, but it’s still a pretty damn impressive ta-da list if I do say so myself.

On tonight’s list, not quite as lofty of goals, but hoping to get through a couple more sets of coasters both dying and applying finish.  Maybe sneak in finishing up a serving tray as well, or getting as close to it as I can!

Biggest wins for the day: Having a good at bat for my day in the shop!

Opportunities for improvement: Better planning in the future to understand just how much can be done in any given time.
