    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)

      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.

#knifemaking#diy#makersmovement#leatherwork#sundayafternoon#marktwain Went to the lake today to seek another point of view.#lakesomerville#txpark#getoutside#lakebum White is the new black apparently.#artisanbuilders#customhomes#austincounty#washigntoncounty#buildit#texasbuilder#design#whiteisthenewblack Backyard bow practice.#homemadebow #handtools #homemade #diy #dontbesoserious #bushcraft#bowandarrow #bow Rowan made a backyard bow yesterday and today we are both making one. Crepe myrtle trees are a perfect tree for making a backyard bow but there are so many species of trees that work great.A bow is a great project to learn how to use a draw knife,rasp,handsaw,sandpaper and knot tying. How long has it been since you've made a backyard bow. Well partner that's too long.#backyardbow#diy#makersmovement#teachthemyoung #drawknife#handtools#rowan I'll be your huckleberry.#onetreewoodwork#diy#knifemaking#mesquite#woodworker#makersmovement #pewter Don't bring a knife to a gun fight....unless of course that knife is the Texas armadillo knife. Your foes will be blinded by its style and originality..... #onetreewoodwork#knifemaking#diy#makermovement #makersgonnamake #dontbesoserious #mesquitewood #thephoenix#saturdaynight#purplesage#texassage
