 This week i've mostly been making stairs.
The plan with the ballustrades ( that's the bits that are vertical that stop you falling out and are great fun when you get your head stuck in between them as a kid) was to do a quick job and just half lap them on the side instead of setting them in pockets. 
This was a quicker option, but with some nice scribing and some small chamfers the overall look was bloody amazing, better than I imagined.
looking at the stairs afterwards gave me a big sense of achivement and pride.
This week i have been working with a grumpy fucker that is in his last week at our company, his heart isn't on the job, he has no pride in what he is doing at the moment as he has his next career, that is preety cool, on his mind. But it gets me down and pisses me off to be in the same room all day with someone like that. I know his next move will inspire him into life.

But what has become evident to me this week is the diferance between throwing shit together or working with care. 
 If you don't have pride in what ever you do and strive to do the best that you can then what is the point of doing anything. 
I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, I know all of produce some fucking brilliant work full of pride and talent but i just needed to vent my thoughts.

Do what you do and do it with pride. Simple concept but one that is surprisingly rarely grasped.

I met you briefly at the Quake and it's great to see that you've been hooked on the dirt. Hoping I can get there again this year, this time as a racer!

Good luck.
