It's a New Year !!

Well the new year is here, although I am some what late posting and have not for some time, I thought I should get back into blogging.

Unfortunately I have not posted for some time due to being busy, the festive season and various other excuses that I feel enables me to quantify my laziness, :-) .

For some time now I have been talking about a change in direction. This is not because I do not enjoy what I do but I have always driven myself in my respective careers to try out new ideas and processes with a view of bettering what I can do.

This involves a new range of work which is modern in both materials and design and some of these are starting to evolve, however while I may post a few tasters on my blog the rest will remain under wraps until they have been launched on a new web site I am currently and very slowly building.

Apart from this I have been revisiting my current work and spending much time in the sketch book developing and extending what I currently make in these designs. New techniques and media are being included.

I do not have much to show at the moment picture wise so have just included a few reference pics that I continually take as reference material for new ideas. You may find these of use for ideas yourself.

Hi Mark,

This is all very cloak and dagger, and I'm lovin' it, LOL.

The image of the base of the tree is a cracker btw.

Take care,

Hi Lee

Thank you for your continued interest.

Not so much cloak and dagger, more that it would not make commericial sense for me to post my new designs before they are commericially available. As always with me it will take time especially with all the other pies I have to keep my fingers in.

Glad you like the pictures. I have just purchased a new Canon Bridge camera which gives me much greater macro capabilities and zoom so hopfully I can add to my reference library with it.

...and btw MrSanger, when did you sneak that other box onto your website?

Pardon me if you've posted this on UKW but I don't recall seeing it.

You can't be sneaking little beauties like this in without an announcement! lol.

Still loving MY BOX btw, tee hee.

Take care Mark,

Hi Lee

Not sure which box you are refering to as I tinker with my web site several times a week to keep things fresh with new content.

Hopefully it keeps the interest with people wanting to come back to see if there is any new content.

I am hoping in the future to have project paged that people can down load for free and print off to take to the work shop.

These will be basic projects such as turn a box, but will also include aboue the wood how to process it, oriantate etc.

But as with everything it will probably be by the next millenium.

Thank you for your continued interest in my blog.
