Now we are Ten

Ten years ago today – and feeling somewhat despondent – I began writing this blog. It has since elevated my spirits and the combination of making furniture and writing about it continues as one of my favourite pastimes.

Today I will be celebrating with a flagon of home brewed cider and a glass or two of Plane’s Milk of Amnesia.

Tomorrow is another day.

    I remember when I first started following this blog; reading your description of a W&M chest as being on “insipid” bracket feet. It didn’t mean much to me then but makes perfect sense now. As I’ve gotten more experience with handiwork, I found that your construction postings give more and more information with each reading. A mind boggling amount of stuff shared here.Thank you for having created it.

    Dear Jack,
    A much belated thought on A Seasonal Tipple
    Might the addition of a judicious dash – strictly optional – of “pumpkin spice”, an unfortunately much maligned substance, yet still all the rage amongst tastemakers seemingly world-wide this time of year, to the top of your primed and ready tipple, add a nod of unexpected and disruptively modern, dare I say it…umami?


  11. Toby Cole says:

    We are very thankful and hope for at least another 10, congratulations my friend.

    Congratulations, Jack! I’ve really enjoyed it too. Many thanks for the inspiration, with woodworking and craftsmanship, but also the inspiration to keep fighting the fight every day, even when every day is a struggle.

    Ditto, and a nice A.A. Milne reference to start the day never goes astray.

    Congratulations and thank you. You and your blog are the primary reason I’m no longer afraid of finishing a project (though work makes it almost impossible) and I actually feel like I understand staining.

    Thanks again.
