    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.

Day at the lake with the wife we had a much needed break from all of the rain we've been getting down here in Texas. To windy to fly fish but perfect for eating some Soppresata,cream Havarti,French bread,Calamata olives,tzatziki and cornichons making for an awesome charcuterie plate.#somervillelake#txlake#heb#brenhamtx#charcuterie#towindytofish At the Houston Zoo today with my son and 25 other 6 yr olds chaperoning a class trip. While this pic looks like total zen and shit I can assure you looks can be deceiving no zen will be had when at the zoo with 26- 6 yr olds.#hostonzoo#houstontx Overcast sky at the Lazy R ranch.#artisanbuilders#customhomes#txcustomhome#customhomebuilder#luxuryhomes Mesquite spoon/scoop carved from a small mesquite log that was destined for my bbq pit for smoking meats.Finish used:walnut oil.#onetreewoodwork#mesquitewood#carvedspoon#rusticwoodwork#mesquitespoon#txmesquite#greenwoodworking#txwoodworker#walnutoil Fold forming copper is fun.
