I haven;t posted much since last year, in fact, I haven't had a lot of time to even read much here for the past several months. Since last October, I am averaging 21 to 30 orders per week and we have been shipping 15 to 22 per week except for this week, only 9 orders so far. So each week I get a little further behind. Maybe one day I will be like Carter and have a one year wait. My shelves are still bare and as fast as I make the boards they go out the door. Lumber purchases are far and away above last year and my lumber dealer loves me. I lost my part-time helper in January but before she left we cut out 60 boards, managed to glue 40 of those and still managed to ship 17 that week. I ran an ad and had a lot of replies, interviewed several and offered a part-time job to the most qualified who didn't bother to show up. So I start again looking and hope I can find someone. Meanwhile, the orders keep coming in.
So, the bottom line is, if you have an order with me, I am working on getting it and the other 45 out as quickly as I can. I will be happy to answer phone calls and emails but be aware a lot of the emails aren't making it because of a glitch with Time-Warner that no one can seem to correct. I even found that some order receipts never made it to me because of this.
