Well, today was my last day in the space, and I took the time to turn one more bowl from a gorgeous piece of spalted beech:
I am headed back to Canada (with a short stop in Barbados first, as it’s still snowing in Canada) in a few days, and while I hope to find a new makerspace there to call home, I will miss this one dearly.
I joined a few years back and was greeted with a community of extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming people, and in the time I am happy to see that culture continue to grow in a positive direction. The SLMS is more than just a collection of excellent tools; it’s a collection of excellent people that truly make the space what it is, and I will miss you all.
That said… I will miss the lathe most of all. As old and cranky as it is, it’s pretty great.
If I find a makerspace to call home on the other end I will let you know all about it, and try to setup some sort of cultural exchange program.
Continue to be good to each other and make amazing things!
