Hunker Down

Hunker Down

To “hunker down” – to hide, to shelter in place, to cower from the storm, to huddle under the covers, to roost in a warm spot.

We are dead-center for the worst of Jonas with a possible 36″+ snow fall and blizzard conditions.  So we are hunkered down!  If you are hunkering down for Jonas you might want something fun to do as you watch the snow fall.

For our pyrographers, check out Grandpa’s Pride, a quick look at how dramatic tonal value contrasts will increase the impact of your burning.

For our 3-D wood carvers, have fun creating your own Tiki Chess Set, a beginner’s level project.
