Having coffee and breakfast before we pack up in the F-150 and head back out to Nate’s shop. Looking forward to getting into a timepiece. Always been captivated by the inner-workings of clocks & watches and this is my chance to sit at the bench and let Nate guide the day.
Jennifer, Nate’s wife, is an engraver who while also has a jewelry business, is Nate’s engraver for his grandfather clocks. I got to visit her workspace and see how the couple works in perfect unison.
It’s been a full and satisfying day working along side such a master craftsman as Nate. He and Jennifer have been extraordinary hosts and the crew, while spent by a long week, is energized by how positive and productive it’s been. Traverse City has treated us well. I’m so psyched for the new season.
