As I am sure you are all aware, we are in a global pandemic. I wanted to let you all know a bit about how we are handling this as a team.
Thursday last week we started working from home rather than in our office/studio/workshop. Our team are all healthy so far, but we wanted to put the health of our team first and do our part in isolating ourselves to stop the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Because the rest of us are working from home, my dad can continue working in his garage workshop without increasing any risk to himself or others as he is also self-isolating.
We have filmed a few months in advance so our team will be able to continue to work remotely on upcoming episodes.
This will no doubt mean we have to shift direction on a few behind the scenes projects but we are going to spend our time planning, learning, and organising.
If we do end up needing to pick up our filming again while this virus is in full swing we will do so in such a way to maintain social distancing, keep our team safe, and be responsible to do our part to prevent the spread of the virus.
We already have some ideas and we think we can be responsible and still provide videos with instruction, encouragement, and support for the foreseeable future. This challenge will push our team’s creativity and we are already planning for multiple possible scenarios.
We encourage you all to stay safe and if possible spend some time woodworking. We have so many different projects that we think you will be able to find something to make even if you have to work with wood you already have on hand. We have always taken a minimalist approach to tools and techniques and we think this will stand you in good stead at these times where travelling to buy wood and tools is restricted.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement.
Best wishes from all of us to you. Get in touch if you have any questions. Happy woodworking!
