been in the new factory for a bit over two weeks now and wanted to
update everyone as to how construction is going. Our schedule has been
a bit strange, particularly since we did not get Internet in the shop
until the last few days. As such, I was having to spend a few hours in
the morning working before I was able to make it to the shop.
Nonetheless, our factory should be mostly completed by the end of the
week. Right now we are just waiting for a few tools and our dust
us a decent amount of time to correctly determine the flow of our
production line; as soon as we did we started building up our factory.
Our electricians have all of our heavy power up and running, so once we
finish a few more things, we will start processing all of our cores. I
figured you would rather look at photos than read my descriptions, so
here you go.

not an August pow day....This is why good dust collection and lung
protection are so important. Our dust collection ducts have still not
arrived, and we are in respirators anyway when we do any wood/bamboo
work, but it is still scary nonetheless.
do it for now. Still tons of work to go. We will hopefully start
processing cores in the next few days. I will also try to be better
about updating the website.
