I repeat the bird has landed…..


I promised some pics of the finished heron so here it is. I used a torch to flame the entire piece to give it natural shading and finished it with an exterior deft oil applying three coats. Due to the location of the mounting I decided it would be best to cut the tail off and let it appear to be in the process of flying through the wall. As if it is landing inside my living room…… I think maybe it is…….and I’m ok with that……

    I didn’t realize how big that bird is until seeing it on your wall.

    Yea it’s carved to just about the true scale of the heron. Too much? I figure if your going to do it…

Saturday. Samuel Adams Octoberfest. Maple Burl friction folder by Onetree. My newly planted Texas purple sage. Which interesting enough the native americans used to brew herbal teas that treated fever and chills. Mesquite grilled hamburgers accompanied by a mesquite friction folder. Made in Texas by me. Date night. #Reposting @artisanbuilt with @instagrab_pic -- We spent most of the morning back at the Seward Plantation working on project scope and pricing. You can't help but be transported back in time when you walk on the property. Not in the way a museum full of antiquities makes you feel. But in a real life honest representation of a home,outbuildings and contents that have somehow managed to survive in gritty glory since before the civil war. The beginning of my fall garden requires a matching beer. But of course. Coffee first. Saturday evening creek therapy. How many carpenters does it take to start an old land cruiser? Apparently it's more then four...... Date night. T-bones,beets,asparagus,mac and cheese and naan bread. And of course yet another gratuitous shot of one my homemade knifes.
