      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.

Cheers everyone it's Friday!#onetreewoodwork#woodcarving#contemplation #woodhand#woodart#tgif#cheers Fixer upper. All it needs is a little t.l.c.#fixerupper#restorationproject#tlc Designing in the dark. Will this piece continue to evolve past the apple juice bottle and fishing line stage of design or will it forever be forced to live in purgatory never reaching its crescendo. Sometimes the path is lit but more times then not, your left finding your way in the dark.

I was given this plane by my father out of his antique tool collection and it's a beautifully primitive wooden plane used in the process of making wooden barrels and more specifically in the fitting of the lid to the inside of the (Howell) or the groove on the inside of the barrel to create a waterproof seal.I also like to think that many a barrel of whiskey,beer or wine might have been stored properly thanks to this tool.#antiquetool#marks500thpost#woodenplanes#artisanbuilders#onetreewoodwork I saw this tip @tenkarabum to utilize hook keepers made by Fuji so that the Tenkara line,tippet and fly could be wound up and be kept on the rod instead of a separate spool . Then you can keep the whole fishing package inside the case ready to fish at a moments notice. Throw it in the truck,boat or backpack or all three and when the moment or the fish presents itself your prepared.#fishbum#tenkarabum#tenkararodco#backcountry#fly Saturday night gear.#handmadeknife#frictionfolder#savinelli #sandemanporto #saturdaynight Quick pickles.
