Current Status: engaged in a lengthy, nearly 18th-century level of email based letter exchange with a local sawmill operator. He's giving me tips on making my own stain and providing furniture ideas, and hoping that "I can have a fun and valuable experience making something by hand with my own tree".
I think we're friends now? I wasn't sure the 21st century worked like this?
@hypomodern any milling updates? and is there just a big ol' tree in your yard still?
@csalzman not yet, and yep!
@hypomodern I cherish finding people that love what they do so much that engaging with them on any level about it makes them excited that you are along for the ride too.
