If I'm going to be at this event next month at the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds, then I better have a sign. Picked up this pockmarked piece of maple and took my woodburner to it.

Because @thaj requested it during the last LinuxLUGcast, here are a couple work in progress shots of my latest project: a board bow! I've gotten it roughed and I'm starting to put on a fiberglass backing. Once that's dry, I should be able to start tillering.

So I went and signed myself up to be a vendor at a [somewhat] local craft fair, selling wooden rings and carved things.

Totally out of my element, but new things are fun, right?

So Nvidia is buying Arm. That should prove to be interesting.

No opinions on it just yet... just a whole slew of questions that will likely only be answered with time.

Kids brought me an interesting bit of wood a while back and I finally got around to carving on it. To my surprise, it was actually one species grown around another! Still a work in progress, but I'm having fun. Scroll through the photos to see the progress.

Come listen to episode 50 where we talk with Máirín Duffy about designing for and with open source software. She's got some great insights that can be applied both in and outside of design.

Had to say goodbye to a friend today. This photo really captures the essence of who he was. The perfect combination of sweetness and assholery. We're gonna miss you, George. I'm glad to have known you for 14 years. Travel well, space cat.

So many habaneros on a single plant! I think I counted over 20. I guess chilli is gonna be on the menu soon.

Episode 49 is here and it's a good one! Listen to @patdavid and I talk about PIXLS.US, his work with GNU Image Manipulation Program, and a whole host of other topics around creative work and Free Software.

Got a bit of audio gear and needed a place to hang it. Sure, I could've just made a shelf or hook or something, but this was may more fun. Old 3D sculpt, some 3D printing, a little primer, some texture paint, and a dowel rod. Pretty happy the way it all came together.

A few of the folks (including me!) who've written for @osdc spoke a bit about the tools we use for writing. Everyone's workflow is different and it's fun to learn from how other folks work.

This is probably the tallest thing I've printed to date. Pretty pleased that it worked without a bunch of additional supports.

The second half of the mintCast show that I got to be a guest on. This one is a lot more Blendery (and animation in general). Thanks again to mintCast for letting me ramble on and on. :)
