    now i know i have too much time on my hands....

    since i've shut the shop down for the winter, i think i've had too much time on my hands. it would seem that my creativity and my sense of humor (humour for rob) have gotten together. it was first noticed in the creation of what i am now calling the minnesota nordwoods drinkin' glasses, genuine minnesota yardsticks, genuine minnesota donut bush seeds, and soon to be made genuine minnesota sundial & weather station, and magic minnesota dollar bill swapper. as if this weren't bad enough, i've decided to take out part of the newsletter, and replace it with 2 stories from around the area. odd but true headlines, real small town names, with stories creatively rewritten to suit my sense of humor. i can't wait until spring gets back here, so i can fully release my creativity and sense of humor on some well deserving lumber....

    I actually bought my wife one of those glasses. Around here they are know as the Redneck Wine Glass. Opps, better pick up a couple more in case the Tour DeWood 2012 makes a stop this time around.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Pretty funny Dan. Do you market these fine products?
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
