    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)

    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.

Ain't no change in the weather. Ain' t no changes in me......::::We need the rain but damn this black gumbo dirt turns into thick peanut butter when wet. Making it difficult to bring in material to job site.#artisanbuilders#customhomes#txbuilder#builditbetter#rainiscoming#austincounty#LYNYRDSKYNYRD#callmethebreeze Progress continues to ROLL on at our latest project.#artisanbuilders#customhomes#txbuilders#builditandtheywillcome#ranchhomes My latest Gyotaku print playing around with colors. Lazy Sunday.#gyotaku#flyfishing #greensunfish#antiqueflyreel#txflyfishing #fishbum#toohotoutside Just a fish bum doing what he does best. Casting not catching.#fishbum#txflyfishing#flyfishing#fish#flymeditation Standing up walls on this Friday. Nothing makes you appreciate a tree more then a day spent in the late July, in Texas with nothing but black gumbo dirt and concrete surrounding you.TGIF friends 🍻🍻🎉#artisanbuilders#customhomes#ranchhomes#austincounty#2ndgenerationbuilder#tgif#igcommunity Soil samples:

Nothing like the smell of fresh concrete in the morning. The time is now.#artisanbuilders#customhomes#txbuilder#austincounty#ranchhomes Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
