Well, I've been doing something for a while and it hasn't been writing posts or making videos.
I'll break it down real easy. I have been busy. Busy at work, busy at home, and just busy thinking about what the heck I want to do and how I want to do it. But here is the good news.....I figured it all out.
First. Videos. I love making videos. I hated my camera, hated my sound, hated my editing software....get the picture. So, I fixed all that. Now, more videos, better quality. short and simple.
Second. Projects. Figured that out too. I could list all of them for sure, but that would be giving it all away. Instead I will show you this picture of books and just say this. Inside these books are projects and ideas that I will be using over the next 6 months to a year. OK OK. short list. Kerfing plane, bedroom furniture, Milk Paint, shine box, mantel, cut nails (lots of those), and other things. Sounds like fun?!? And one more thing. More on carving. A little inside baseball: I had to shoot my letter carving video several times to get what I got (see youtube) and personally I think it still sucked. Hence why I bought the new camera and lights.
Third. Expansion. hmmm... what does that mean? Well, it goes back to videos. As of today Jan 1, 2015 I started my Hand Tool Of The Week (HTOTW) videos. Short once a week videos all year. (tool porn)
But wait... There's more. I am continuing my Bench Talk series. These are single topic shows. Techniques, demonstrations, tools reviews, viewer questions, etc.... I think these will be a great place to spread some knowledge and share some info. And last, but not least, the project series videos. Those, I think you can figure out on your own (see above part deuce).
Forth. The Blog. I have spent a lot of time thinking about this part. For some reason it almost seems easier to knock out a short video than it does to write a blog, but that's just being lazy. I have a few written series's that I have cooked up that I think will be very informative and fun. Stay tuned for those.
Needless to say, I have a lot planed for this year. I'm amped up and ready to go. Now all I have to do is pull all this off.
