Spring is here in Portland and I am trying out a new version of an old machine. The push mower so far it is working great it is a joy to push around an almost silent mower. It is cutting through everything, tall grass no problem. It feels great to be outside and knowing that mowing the lawn is not polluting and noisy as it used to be. One small change towards a more sustainable world.
A great way to get started with a project is to collect materials and samples of products that you like. We are working on a kitchen remodel that will feature a butcher block island. In this photo are samples of butcher block hard woods in Pacific Madrone and Western Walnut. Both of these woods are harvested locally and are FSC certified woods.
