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.

Morning time is the best time for making a Mother's Day fire pit chili.

Saw this guy on a walk. Had to catch his fish behind a tree... Still, so cool to have the chance to see this.

Finally got around to setting up a that we'd had sitting around forever. Took some doing. It used to be white and it was missing a plug cover. A few coats of paint and a new cover and it was ready to install... Then I had to clean out my downspout.

The first night of rain, this thing collected over 30 gallons of water. Is that normal?

Kinda want to decorate it now. 😁

Figured I'd try my hand at carving rock on a random river stone I found. Turns out that I can do it, but it's *really* slow going compared to working in wood. I'll have to find a softer rock if I want to try again.
