Well we're back in the workshop today as part of the New Year push. The cold weather has driven me out a bit of late, as well as a touch of illness. I'm feeling better and the weather is warm enough that the small woodstove should keep the chill at bay, so let's make some knives!
I'm still having trouble with Paypal. I failed some "fraud detection" test of theirs and they suspended my accounts for the Etsy store. I now have to jump through hoops to get them to believe who I am. While it is designed to protect me and them, I can't help but get the feeling it helps them MORE so I'm dropping out of Paypal altogether.
I have set up my shop now to accept regular credit card payments, check or money order. Only problem is that I have a severe shortage of knives for sale! Only three legacy holdouts from last year (that didn't sell).
So it's back to the shop for me to crank out some nice knives.
