I'm glad you've found my site -
hope you enjoy yourself here.
I've been building things for as long
as I can remember. Bows and arrows, slingshots, and spears seemed
to be early favorites. Wooden knives (sticks rubbed on a concrete
block) were an early speciality item. As technology improved (I
experienced my own little industrial revolution), I moved on into
crossbows, snowball throwing catapults, and the like. It seems
that "marksmanship" and "novelty" were instinct
passions from birth.
Well, here we are. I'm still enjoying
playing with toys and still making them for other good little
girls and boys to enjoy as well. You should have seen my eyes
light up when I first heard about Big Bore airguns. "NOooooo!
Pinch me, this is too good to be true."
So, as best you are able, let the world
of work and stress outside and browse around the site. Loosen
your tie, pour a glass of iced tea, and relax. Cell phones and
beepers go on the shelf by the door there. The Elves will dust
and recharge them. You can pick them up on the way out.
I take care of 99% of my business through
e-mail. It allows me to have the uninterrupted stretches of concentrated
machine time I need. I work my shop cycles and then come in for
my own iced tea. When I do, I answer the e-mail. I need at least
10 glasses of iced tea to get through the typical day, so e-mail
gets regular attention.
If you find a need to phone, you'll
reach my good friend (and wife), Kelly. She's gifted with the
ability to live with an artistic type guy, and helps me with all
manner of "real world" things. She's tough now - no
push over. She knows nothing gets built while I'm on the phone,
so she guards my shop time pretty close (and I thank her for it).
There'll be times when you need to
speak to me. She knows those times. I never hide from my friends
who have placed orders. But I do need the shop time too. There's
a "Secret" to doing this type of work. If I tell ya,
you gotta keep it to yourself. It's "attention span".
One of these rifles begins as an idea. Wayyyy down at the other
end of the shop there, where the distance has faded the colors
to grey, is the completion of that idea. In between here and there
is an unbroken chain of concentration and attention to detail.
Makes your head ache doesn't it?
Well, don't think about it. That's
my part. This is your birthday party . . .
Hope you enjoy your visit!
