      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.

.Damn tree hugger...and right out my back door......in broad daylight. A cedar tree hugging a pecan tree...shame. It may seem odd that a wood butcher such as myself is also a tree hugger. But I confess...I am. In my experience it's those who both use and rely on the resource who are also the first to understand the need for the conservation of it. I am a tree hugger. I also have cut many a tree down. I am both. We must be the Shepard to the flock because the wolves are at the door. #treehugger #resist #woodbutcher#onetreewoodwork #shepard We needed a little creek therapy before the rain moved in so we went to the future Haus of Jackson.#creektherapy #getoutside #dadlife#brenham Concrete poured at Casa de Jackson.

Saturdaze #getoutside#dadlife#huckfinn#illbeyourhuckleberry We built this "tree house-fort" for our clients daughters to play in. Though when my clients saw it complete they seemed to only talk about what a wonderful place this will be to drink cold beer and wine from....dual purpose ...my kind of people. A family fort that's plenty big enough for everyone.#artisanbuilders #customhomes#customtreehouses#treehouse#adultfort#adulting#texasbuilder#spiralstaircase Learning to fly.
