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.
