Hello people. As some of you are aware we are living in strange times. For the last few months I have been back heavily into this fingerboard malarky. Not having a proper full time job has given me plenty of time for thought and time to do passions I love...But have not had the time to fulfil in the past.
Right now I have plenty in the pipeline. loads of decks are getting made, the team is building itself and things look good from here onwards.
Time is the main enemy in deck making. These things really do take a long time to make, especially if its more than 10 decks. Sure small batches can be made fairly quickly, but when working with numbers its tough to keep things in a timely consistent manner. People see pictures of decks I have posted in the production stages, and think they will be ready for sale the next day. I wish it was like that. I won't put nothing out until I am 100% happy with whatever it may be......well.....Ill say 98% happy. There is always the 2% in life no matter what you do!
All stages of deck making take considerable time. Selecting woods, making splits, dying woods, purchasing woods, cutting woods, preparing glue, drilling.......etc, etc. I hope you see my point. I am on my Todd in this game. Having said that, a good fair chunk of my time and energy is going into this right now and TBF I am really enjoying having the freedom to do this with my free time.
So please can peoples bear with me. I've got this whole online side I'm trying to deal with, updating etc. I've got sooo much I need to sort, and gradually I am getting there!
Got some really great decks on the way. All updated for 2020. right now 2 different sized Blosom models.
both templates have a nice skate shape, and both taper in at the back trucks by about 0.4mm on both decks. What with those and the Wengdys on the way, things are looking bright.
Ive been away working these past few years and been stuck doing BS I didn't really enjoy. Life is not about making money, its about being happy doing something you love. If you can do that and survive then life will be the most rewarding IMO.
Anyways rant over. Glad to be back making decks, and helping our scene grow in anyway possible I can on our tiny little island!
Blosom is back.
