Pittsburgh is certainly a different city than what it was three years ago.
Pack up the box truck and head eastward, I am a salmon swimming back upstream. As I am returning home and taking time to think about my next steps, I am looking forward to getting back to my roots and working with my hands. Now, more than ever, the maker community and spaces in this city are booming and creativity is flowing.
I have a couple ideas already rolling around in my head, but first on the list is a set of cutting boards for some great friends of mine back in St. Louis. I've talked with Troy almost everyday for the past three years and whether it's cars or guitars, he most always have a vision and taste for materials; especially the pairing of walnut and maple.
So, off to the lumberyard and into the shop. Can't wait to get started!
