      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.

A few more days and the Jackson family is going on a walkabout.#pagosasprings#sanjuanwilderness#sanjuannationalforest #sanjuanriver #piedrariver Molly had the first of three birthday celebrations today to celebrate the big #5. This girl has a style all her own and she is not afraid to use it.#5thbirthday #timeflies I'll be your huckleberry..... Robertson ranch progress : installing the standing seam roof while the masons make good progress on the stone ext. meanwhile the electric and h.v.a.c have run thousands of feet of wire and hundreds of feet of metal duct. Mo house - mo problems. #artisanbuilders#customhomes#custombuilder#txbuilder#austincounty#kennytx @instagramtexas #washingtoncounty#backroads#countryroads Hang a river on the wall. Finishing up some carved panels not yet certain wether they will be hung vertically on top of each other or side by side or even separately?#onetreewoodwork #woodcarving #artpanels#riverart#woodcollector#stonecollector#rusticwoodwork #rusticart#folkart Sometimes getting that raise at work isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Ha ha..#artisanbuilders#customhomes#txbuilder#myviewfromwork#rigid#rigidtools#homedepot#builder Throwback Thursday - a little custom house we built many moons ago and my favorite stair project to date- a ships ladder to access the upstairs loft.In addition we got to site build all of the interior doors.small-Simplicity #artisanbuilders#customhomes#txbuilder#familybusiness#shipsladder#customwoodworker#austincounty #millcreektx#tbt#shelter#smallhomes# Full scale version of the Great blue heron finished up today. Carved from western red cedar torched and then brushed with a solid color stain "driftwood grey" that was rubbed down to expose grain and detail. Finished it off with a clear satin finish and since the heron was full scale size of an adult heron with a wingspan of over 5' I attached an organic shaped base plate made from long leaf pine to help with supporting the weight when mounting it to the wall. I found some perfectly sized river rocks to use for the eyes. Final destination for this piece is a house we just finished building.#onetreewoodwork #woodcarving#blueheron#rusticwoodwork#birdsinflight#wildernessart#dowhatyoulove
