    Tohner,

    Your talent never ceases to amaze.

    Is that light ac or dc? Prob easier to change a AA battery,but could not see a cord.

    Keep on truckin’.

      Thanks James,
      Yea it’s a battery, I even thought about maybe a candle but with the two little terrorist running around in the house I figured it wouldn’t be prudent(Dana Carvey)

      Peace and Chicken Grease.

    Wait, you carved a left hand or you carved with your left hand? Either way, looks cool.

    Also, I’ve been reading Lloyd’s book. You’re in great company, and you’re right that it only furthers my desire for a tricked out camper van. Sadly, I don’t have your woodworking skills, so I’ll have to buy one that’s ready-made. Someday.

      Well it’s funny, I thought that it was my first left hand carving and then I realized the other three including yours (I think) was a lefty. Strange I don’t think I ever consciously decided to carve a left I suppose it may be due to the fact that my right hand is usually the dominant carver and since I don’t really draw anything on the wood I use my left as a visual reference.

      Yea Lloyd’s book is so incredibly dense with so many cool people doing cool shit and every time I pick it up I randomly open it,I love books that can be digested slowly.

Moon out and just a little residual light left in the horizon.#lakesomervillestatepark #txlake#fishbum# Watching the sun go down over Lake Somerville. #lakesomervillestatepark #txlake#txlakelife#washingtoncounty#saturdaynightout Finally got around to installing my heron carving in a home we built #artisanbuilders  and finished several months ago. It's really cool to have a piece of my art in a home we built. Both (brain) hemispheres got a shot at this one.#onetreewoodwork #artisanbuilders #customhomes#woodcarver#heroncarving#birdman# Called out by @ryno_reed1836 for a #pocketdumpchallenge on this humid mid August hump day, keeping it light and essential my friend.Sometimes one leatherman just isn't enough. #leathermanskeletool #leathermanstylecs#orangemonster#toyotatundra#oldasdirtducksunlimitedwallet
