      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.

The purple colored Sheetrock (quiet rock)on the far wall is where the future kitchen will be. Our client is very noise sensitive so in an effort to separate the great room noise from the master suite we insulated all of the interior walls with sound batts and also installed more quiet rock encompassing the entire master suite in hopes for creating a quieter house. #artisanbuilders #Quietrock##customhomebuilders#builder Saturday night lights. Cheers everybody. Get in where you fit in. On my way home I took this pic and it reminded me of this....
