Did a bit more tillering of the Mark 2 Red Oak Longbow (I really ought to name this thing) and took it to the in-laws' to test. I'd say it's doing OK.

Accomplishment for the weekend: significant progress on the Red Oak Board Bow, Mark 2. It's now tillered to the point that it can take full brace. Still a ways to go before it's done, but I'm proud to have gotten this far.

Just finished this one off while at the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds Fall Craft Fair. Pearwood and purpleheart carved with inlays in turquoise and howlite. I'll be here all weekend.

An image of barely contained excitement when my comfort box for showed up.

Sometimes you need to spend a full morning of bending. Looking forward to the combinations I'm going to put together... then carve them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Maybe it doesn't look so that different from the previous photo, but an lot of material got taken off this. It's starting to feel like it's taking shape.

Got gifted a few large chunks of a fallen cherry tree. Figured I'd try a hollowed out carving of a person reading. Still a way to go, but I'm having fun.

A very maker-y Father's Day to me!

Little Meatball made me a puzzle. Little Cheeseball sculpted a figure and a small tray. Well done, boys.
