Have you done any custom frames for your prints?
Everybody always teases me because I don't do my own framing. It comes down to not having enough hours in a day to run my business, be a dad to 2 young boys, pay the bills, mow the lawn, etc....I would love to do it someday when I have a bit more free time to pursue the hobby! Also, I feel like I would want a clean room (dust free environment) if I were to do it. My shop is about 50,000 square feet and even with massive dust collection systems, there is a lot of particulate always floating in the air. Maybe when I build my next shop (already drew the plans, but then the recession hit), I can have a small clean room to do frames in
Thanks for the kind words...This will sound cliche, but you have to do what you love. I moved to Austin in 1992 as a long-haired hippie with $50 to my name, a back pack and a dog, but I loved to work with wood, so that's what I started doing. My passion for wood has turned into a great business that supports many people now. My employees are my greatest asset and they are all like family to me!
