Save the date! Next Saturday I'll be opening the studio door for my annual sale. Time for some of those less-than-perfect pots to find loving homes. #potterysale #springcleaning #openstudio #handmadepottery #functionalpottery #handmade613
Tonight we went for a celebration dinner at The Malborough Pub here in North Gower. Jordan got Prime Rib, the kids polished off their ice cream. What are we celebrating? JL Woodworking is now not just a side gig, a hobby. We are taking a (calculated) leap of faith, Jordan gave his notice at his "real job" a few weeks ago. Are we giving up a lot and taking a huge chance? Absolutely! But we have been working our butts off for the last few years and you know what? Giving up a bit of monetary stable income so that Jordan can follow his passion, show the children devotion and hard work can pay off, and wake up excited for life. We realised these things mattered more. We have a few amazing projects coming up, a bunch of things we need the time to develop, a few meetings lined up for some partnering projects. Thank you all for your past, present, and future patronage. We could not of done this with out all your trust in us. With out all of you Jordan would just be some dusty guy making guitar shaped cutting boards. Have a great night! #selfemployed #iquitmyjob #woodworking #myownboss #ottawa #toronto #ontario #montreal #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneur #excitedforthefuture #buy613 #handmade613 #illsleepwhenimdead #smallbusinessowner #smallbusiness #livingmybestlife

Good evening everyone! It's the eve of the big announcement. Tomorrow is going to be a great day. So photos of the evening's work. First three are of rainbow rocker slats. It's a good view of two of our themes. The left is standard rainbow. The right is our "vivid" theme., The same theme as at @wildchild.coffeeproject . We are working on getting our stackers out. The part I thought wasn't going to be the bottle neck, turned out to be. Painting..... Mel has been going crazy hand painting. A spray guy I've been looking at for years, but always thought was not going to work, was the critter syphon gun from @leevalleytools . Turns out not only is it good, it can actually spray non-thinned heavy body acrylic paint! My Earlex 5500 HVLP can't do that and it was many times the price. The ease to switch colours, clean, and that I can pre-mix and store everything in mason jars, great new toy. The stackers should hopefully start cranking out. Also this one is going to Rome .... Yup we are internationally renowned. Also a pic of some art/overspray. My mother is visiting from Toronto and wants to take it to hang on her wall..... I think I use to make something similar in pre-school. #rainbowstacker #rainbowtoy #rainbowrocker #spraygun #montessori #woodentoys #woodtoys #buy613 #handmade613 #handmade #ottawa #ontario #toronto #montreal #woodworking

Good evening folks! What a productive night! First picture is of another rainbow stacker fresh off the bandsaw. This old 1987 @busybeetools is holding up great. For a 3/4 hp motor it's going through the Baltic birch plywood no problem. The Viking bandsaw blades from @leevalleytools leave a tad to be desired. Come pre-broken toothed , or at least poorly shaped on the blades weld. At least they are sharp and run straight. The third pic should give you guys abbot of an idea of what's happening the next few days. In the front is 5 learning towers, ready for sanding. 2 rainbow rockers, the be going out on Saturday. And the odd collection of pone strips are for a Montessori house bed. Sanding and maybe assembly tomorrow. Beds for us are hit and miss. We get 3-5 back to back then nothing for 2-3 months. We love to make them, it's just very tidal for us. Have a great night! Big announcement coming either tomorrow or Friday. Mel has that figured out. #montessori #rainbowtoy #rainbowstacker #bandsaw #woodtoys #montessoriathome #custombed #woodworking #handmade613 #handmade #buy613 #rainbowrocker #learningtower
