Thanks for the compliment. As you well know, most individuals working with any system or material will never invest the time/effort/money to become an artisan. It is very sad to see many that you train go on to rush a process and go to market with a level of craft that should remain hidden in the garage. I spent nearly two years training and providing support for Shirestone, and a small handful out of about 150 applied themselves to the craft and became quite good. I would most definitely like to learn more about your system, products, etc. I am very intrigued by your shower application. The project you referred to of mine was an odd thing that developed on the fly, with very little advance plan. The outside arch was a last minute application after the faux finisher failed to show. Had I anticipated, the carved jamb would have been back-beveled on the outside for a more seamless result. All in all, not bad for a few days in a friends little bath. It's definitely nice to have a neutral location to try new ideas. Do stay in touch with developments on your side. Hope to see some of your work in person sometime.
Bobby thank you for your kind words, I love this craft and I look forward to continuing my education surrounded by all the Artisans in this forum. I'm a subscriber of Vertical Artisans and the data and knowledge shared there is phenomenal. Having true artist like Nathan, Mike Vernelson, and yourself sharing your skills and offering up your knowledge is what will create a thriving industry of no limitations for us all to enjoy.
Just wanted to say hi real quick. I noticed that you posted a couple pics of a cool table on Jeff's network. I tried to get a better look at it, but somethings wrong with my signing in. Trying to sort it out now. Things are a bit stressful now, but I'll try and give you a call soon. Take care.
