Lazy Susan Line Coming Soon!
OCtober 23, 2007
Well, it’s been a busy few weeks here a the shop. We’ve been gearing up production for holiday gift orders as well as finishing up a few large custom pieces. My family and I visited Detroit this past weekend for my wife’s nephew’s Bar Mitsvah. A great time was had by all, but it was a whirlwind trip with our three kids. Next weekend our family visits my side of the family in NYC. I need to talk to the scheduler, my wife, about spacing our trips apart a little bit more!
Our wine group met two weekends ago right after I made my last blog entry. We blind tasted favorite wines under $12.00 per bottle. The best of the 8 bottles was bottle number 4. When the bottles were unveiled, it turns out that bottle number 4 was Kirkland Cabernet Sauvignon. Can you believe it? 8 somewhat average pallets picked Costco brand wine as the best? We were all floored!!! (and running to Costco the next day.) We later found out that the bottle was actually $12.50 which violated the under $12.00 rule made by hostess Lucy. (Lucy was also the one who bought the Costco wine).
Anyway, one last thought, I’ve seen many lazy susans in my day and all I can say is that people who make lazy susans use wood that is either scrap wood laminated together or they use plain/ugly wood. I’ve decided that we’re going to make a line of lazy susans that uses beautiful woods such as birds eye maple and tiger maple, with each piece being a work of art. Stay tuned to our website for that, they will be up in a week.
I just wanted to add a disclaimer that my wife’s name is Susan and there is no correlation between my wife Susan and lazy susans.
Have a good week and I’ll update after our trip to NYC!
