I had the pleasure of chatting with Rick Hage of Goshen, Indiana. He is a talented craftsman, great Father and wonderful Husband (to me). He enjoys working with his hands. Though he works in the commercial printing business (day job), he has always taken the time to explore a variety of side jobs and hobbies. Past interests he enjoyed are mountain climbing, camping and hiking. He also dabbles in Blacksmithing and has given demonstrations at Pioneer Day Festivals locally. One of his earlier hobbies is refinishing Antique furniture. This has become a “paying hobby” or small cottage industry. I want to add; Rick picked this Blue color for the text today :)
