Solar Kiln Weekend

Boyan and I working on the west wall

WE built a solar kiln to dry wood that we get from our friend Ken Anderson. The storms this summer have provided us with ample material to use in creative ways. This kiln will allow us to dry the freshly cut timber in 8 weeks when normally it would take two years!!

Sad Day at Karpowicz Studios

Yesterday the 3rd of August was my assistant, Sachiyo Yosheda's last day working for me. She will be returning to Japan on the 25th of August (I guess she didn't want me to mess up her nails in the next three weeks). So as a going away treat I took her to the CUBS game last night!! It was her very first professional sporting event. I think she had a wonderful time even though the Cubs lost to Milwaukee 4 to 3.
