    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.

Your straight lines are useless here.  From now on you must rely on the force.#handhewnbeams #artisanbuilders #rustichome#txbuilder#krebsconstruction #customhomes#finishcarpenter#bluecollar#savethetrades We made good progress today backs aching and we didn't even dent the pile. Using salvaged material at the Robertson ranch project. I really dig incorporating the hand hewn material in new houses but does it have to be so mutha-fing heavy.#salvagedwood #handhewn#handhewnbeams #artisanbuilders#customhomes#txbuilder#rustichomes#luxuryhomes Mocking it up. What you ask? If I had a clear idea of what I wouldn't have to mock it up would I !!! Haha - he laughs crazily...#onetreewoodwork #mockups #mockupdesign #pushingboundaries #hobbithole #designedintheshire#shire Apparently this bluegill didn't receive the memo that these San Juan worms are built for trout. I guess I better start calling them the Brenham- Texas worm. Doesn't have the same ring...#flyfishing #txflyfishing #brenham#bluegill Hiking staff is starting to fill up with medallions won't be long and I will need to start another one.🌱🍁🌲#hike#hikingmedallion #gotakeahike #wilderness#walkinthewoods #muir Day dreaming.....#fourmilefalls #colorado#pagosasprings Throwback Thursday : I'm not saying I'm famous and published........... but I am one of these.
