Employees working for building companies that do not have a clearly defined company culture fail to take ownership or responsibility. They engage in blame games and are lacking in both commitment and loyalty to their company. Whereas a building company with a strong company culture runs smoother because its employees are fully engaged, they take pride in what they do, they use their initiative to solve problems and they have a ‘can-do’ attitude. None of this happens by chance. A company’s culture has to be set and enforced by the leadership... And it’s probably easier that you think!

Rip vs finish. Wow is that a big difference. I prefer the rip when I'm in the middle of milling since off the rip blade it's ready for a glueup. The finish blade is excellent at cross cuts and plywood though! My rip blade is also a thin kerf, as when I rip hard stock or thick boards my 1.75hp saw doesn't have as much trouble with it.
There is always lots of work to be done outside of the shop. Woodworking is not just saws, chisels, dovetails and flawless finishes....although I wish it was! . . Not being in the shop today means projects on the smalls to get them ready for sale. Pictures, writing, posting.... . . This is the part I struggle the most on, posting and selling pieces that are not commissioned. . . What part do you struggle on? .
The long awaited pool is 🚧 Under Construction 🚧 Designed by 👩🏭👩🔧 Masterclass Buildhers we put hours of thought into this baby. With form and function in mind, we discussed what makes for a good family pool (no laps necessary 😂) and what shape would allow for the pool to reflect back the architectural elements of the house, without detracting from them. Stay tuned for steel and concrete! Thanks to all those involved including #alpinepools @structerre @blundyexcavations @righteousbrothers @primebuilt @buildhercollective
