Time Away from the Bench

by Jordan Ficklin

There is one thing about this profession — it is hands on! I was out of the shop for a week because of the birth of my third little boy. Mom & Baby are doing very well. My first day back was a little bit rough. It is amazing how taking just one week off can make you a little bit rusty. I would never want to take a month off because it would take a week to get back into it. Luckily I was back into my groove by the end of the day.

I think that the same is true for learning and that is why it is so important to keep taking classes and learning more and more about this profession.


Posting may be a little sporadic as we adapt to a little more chaos in our home over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for a contest coming up. It’s our biggest yet!
