Over the past few years we have made efforts to reduce the impact of our operations have on our environment.
We have now...
...added Solar Photo Voltaic panels to the barn roof, enough to produce what we consume. 
...added solar heating (air) to the shop to supply some of the heat
...converted to water based finish (stain and clear coat) to eliminate VOCs and the use of toxic thinners.
...re-using cardboard products for protection when packaging instead of Styrofoam.
...using boxes made from  re-cycled fiber
...changed the lighting in the shop (and most in the house) to LED bulbs
...Composting and recycling shavings and saw dust.
