    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.

Beyond the pond and past the trees in the middle of that pasture sits the site of our next building project. At the moment it only lives on the blueprint......#artisanbuilders#customhomes#kennytx#austincounty#homebuilders#futurehomesite#reflection #buildit#blueprint Shadows.#onetreewoodwork #woodcarver#driftwood#wildlifeart#shadow#blueheron #stag#woodart#saturdaynight#woodworker I got some truly kick ass stickers this week from some talented craftsman. If your not following these guys already check them out. @mapleridgewoodworks @thejawnshop  @miniwoodproductions looking forward to putting these stickers in my covered trailer. Thanks a lot guys 😀👍👊🔨🍻. T.G.I.F. #stickerswap#stickers#igers #igfriends #igfamily_friends #onetreewoodwork#stickerjunkie I carved this for my father many moons ago.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us." John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
