@askcheese turning some of the more neutral-colored SpectraPly today. Not as vibrant as the blues and reds, but still some interesting patterns in it. #turning #lathe  #woodturning  #woodworking  #smallstuff #sundayfun #etsy

More yard waste recycling. As I was preparing my most recent fleece for spinning, I made a diz from a large branch slice. I made a couple extra. Haven’t decided yet if I’ll offer them in our #etsy shop or just give them to a couple of #handspinning friends. #fiberarts #fiberprep #handspun  #handmade

Our neighbor had two ash trees taken down this summer. He gave us some of the wood for turning stock, plus several branches for #buttons, like this set that was listed today. #wood  #woodenbuttons  #treebranchbuttons  #salvagedwood  #suburbanwood  #yardwaste #etsy #askcheese

I thought I was getting ahead when I sanded and finished 300 buttons on Friday. Then we sold 19 sets over the weekend. Time to make more! #handmade  #buttons  #treebranchbuttons  #etsy  #buyhandmade  #niceproblemtohave

We went out for dinner and came home to orders for a dozen buttons and a travel mug. That puts us at over 1200 sales since we started the shop four years ago. #gobsmacked

Chris is thinking about making more matched sets of bottle openers and pizza cutters, then listing them in the shop as “bachelor chow” gift sets.
