For anyone following along on the saga... a few updates. I've posted some in individual threads, but it warrants it's own thread, I think.
So I'm anonymous here, and have not revealed the company I work for, for a simple reason. I'm airing out dirty laundry in a public forum in hopes of getting cleaner clothes. It's a goal based endeavor, and this place one one heck of a tool.
For the sake of fairness, and sharing the joy--I posted about the awful things, and I also should post about the great things.
So people are thinking progress, ground up. Shop is tidier, workers are enthused, people are coming out of their cars at breaks. Even shy people are talking.
Procedure for storage is starting to happen, and the pile of bent lumber is getting slowly, but surely, processed. Managers are starting to delegate more. New person is actually getting proper training.
I recently spotted scrappers coming in to assess getting rid of larger waste/ big ol machine collecting dust/how to get it out of there.
Owners are making an action plan for the mezzanine full of garbage and getting machinery up there--still waiting to see what they come up with, with much excitement.
Quotes are awaited for recycling of all wood waste for biomass fuel.
Good month. This feels amazing. Thanks folks for your fair eye and good advice. Big energy and lots of change. Very proud of my people :)
What do you guys think?
While you are thinking about poeple licking icecream on plywood, they may be thinking about where to buy socks after work.
So many choices, so little time :)
Great news Mel. Congrats.
Now the really hard part starts - maintaining the momentum. But with your drive it should be doable.
Onwards and upwards!
I do have energy for 10 :)
Was just snooping around on your website--very nice. Looking forward to the video section on how you make moldings.
And bonus--learned a thing or two on your frame joining helpful hints section.
I found a pair of socks that I liked online so I ordered 45 pair. As part of my ongoing commitment to continuous improvement I am going to take the time I save in sorting socks to design & engineer a sock dispenser. The working model right now is something akin to a vending machine but might evolve to something more along the lines of a coffee bean dispenser at a grocery store. If I buy a years worth of socks at a time it might be beneficial to consider a conveyor of some sort to transport the socks to the attic. This conveyor could perhaps also be used to bring christmas ornaments down each year from the attic. So little time and so many things to accomplish.
But cabmaker, shame on you, have you thought of putting a pedometer on yourself from bed to dresser? Those footsteps are totally wasted. And you bought a pillow, which you shouldn't have. Cut out the fat--it's time to stuff the pillow cases with the socks. Fill them up when they get low-- kanban? Shezzam!
PS--best socks in the world were from Mark's Work Wearhouse. Inside lined with murdered teddy bear fur, outside striped grey and black. Perfect and fluffy in every way, except they die too fast. Now they don't sell them anymore. Sad, sad ol' Melly :(
