2008; and On We Go

Well, the new year will be upon us in the next few hours, and while I'm not big on resolutions or turning over new pages in life based on this day in particular, I'm never blind to the changes occurring around me daily.

I want to sincerely thank everybody who has come through my life and my business in the last year as it has been a great one for me; I have met COUNTLESS people that have changed the ways I view board building as well as life in general...Its hard for me to differentiate the two since board building and conversations based around that subject consume about 96% of my average day...

So here it is, a big thank you to all of my customers, friends, inspirations, acquaintances, board builders and the people who keep thinking up more and more 'out there' boards for me to experiment with. Shaping has grown from a hobby on my porch to an obsession that fills my mind every day and I could never have come to whatever point I'm at without everyone who has come with me along the journey.

The past year has been a great one, but the next 365 days is looking to be a major turning point in terms of the PC lifespan...I don't want to spill the beans or count any chickens before they've hatched but there are some incredible things brewing in terms of friendships, local revolution, articles (whoops), new work spaces and new experiments coming down the pike very quickly...

So THANK YOU everybody for making the last year of my life truly incredible, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all and prospering in the new year with you!
