      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.

Flip side of necklace. Just plain old wood therapy on this side.#onetreewoodwork #aromatherapyjewelry #mesquitewood#woodisgood Prototype: aromatherapy necklace carved mesquite and then I molded and stamped  natural earth clay that dries hard but stays semi porous. Which makes a good substrate to put a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it (not my idea just my take on it). #onetreewoodwork #aromatherapy #aromatherapyjewelry #esentialoils #woodjewlery A sucker for the holidays. The Jackson Häus is starting extra early this year. #homeandhearth#homeiswheretheheartis #furnishingsbyonetreewoodwork#onetreewoodwork#thanksgiving2015#christmas2015 Challenged by my fellow Texan @ryno_reed1836 and fellow knife collector for an artful shot, this knife my parents brought back from France.

A log cabin beaver?...#takeahike #getoutside#llanoriver #logcabin#beaver Twisted Roots.#southllanoriverstatepark #treeroots #getoutside#txparksandwildlife #onetreewoodwork #takeahike Field testing a waterproof bag for my phone made by Voxkin.
