My daughter started calling me Jo Jo Beans and it stuck.
My daughter is clever and has this complex personality full of texture.
I know all parents believe their child is special. Anyone who spends an hour with her understands.
Her personality has texture. She amazes me.
So when she said to name my businesse Joe Joe Beans Design, I did.
Wood has a texture and beauty that can't be found elsewhere.
Like people it changes with age and wear.
Its chatacter changes and it becomes more interesting.
It carries with it both the abuses and kindnesses done to it during its life.
I take unwanted wooden things,
leftover bits of boards
and I give them a new purpose.
You'll never see something
I've made come from the wood store.
Saved, salvaged, reused, repurposed, recycled & transformed.
All those words describe the un-new.
That's where I get my wood.
It's a little more work to create blanks for turning,
but I think you'll agree that it's worth the effort.
If you're following along in order of post production then maybe you only know the backstory and not the whole story. The rest of the story is told in the RLS Awareness Day post.
That topic change makes sense. (Can you hear the sarcasm? Probably not. Trust me, it's there.)
Saved, salvaged and repurposed, just like us.
The charities I support with my girl Joe business are
Cornerstone Community Church in St. Petersburg, FL
and the Joy FM radio station.
Rest in Peace, Stanley Martin Lieber
