All moved into our new spot at 811 E Burnside #119 Got my walnut shelves drilled and finished and hung with 1/2" pipe. Still working on a walnut desk and another display rack with a welder friend of mine, but the front shop is starting to come together!
Got the studio dialed in... feels good to be all set up and back to work! Come visit! Currently open by appointment.. hope to have regular shop hours soon.
So long studio. I will miss your close proximity to my house, tree top sunset views and incredible light. However, I will not miss those 3 flights of stairs. Off to bigger and better things! #newbeginnings #811Eburnside

Just a half hour east of Portland you can find yourself in the Columbia River Gorge - an 80 mile stretch of canyon that divides Oregon and Washington with a myriad of hikes and views of Mt Hood, Mt Adams and Mt St. Helens (and of course the beautiful Columbia River.) Been trying to bust out of town on these sunny spring days and go hiking. This was a 6 mile hike a friend and I did about an hour outside of Portland on the WA side of the river called Labyrinth Loop Hike - a trail full of wild flowers, giant basalt rock formations, waterfalls, a magical oak grove. The hike ends with a spectacular view of Coyote Wall cliff! NW livin' is the best.
