Just a quiet part of the day in the shop with just me, some files, and a ring to finish. Can't ask for much more.

In case you missed it, the whole replay from World Blender Meetup Day 2021 was posted last week... and here's a direct link to my little 30-minute talk in there about collaborative workflows for individual artists:

Just updated my NextCloud instance from v15 all the way up to v21. It took a while... and a couple overdue OS upgrades as well, but it was largely painless. Well done, @nextcloud. Now to check out all the new apps!

We started redoing our backyard a while back... part of that involved destroying my old fire pit. Now I've built myself a new one. Looking forward to a fire tonight!

In just over 10 minutes (TEN MINUTES!), I'm going to be giving a talk at World Blender Meetup Day! Cool information and a super-secret announcement!

Do you know about World Blender Meetup Day? It's tomorrow... like all day! And I'm giving a 30 minute talk in the middle of it. Yay! Have a look-see at the schedule.

Got a really nice pyrography kit as a gift and decided to put it to work on some palette boards and make a sign to decorate out dining room with a family motto.

Wherein I attempt to convince my oldest child that his present is a stuffed bunny head (it isn't).

@Defolos Thanks! I actually have a couple old books on primitive bows that I used as a base reference, but a lot of the nuts and bolts information came from reading a few build-alongs on the web. They're scattered about. There are a couple on instructables and youtube, but the most helpful one for me was on a site called poorfolkbows.com. Unfortunately that site is down now, so you'll need to use the Wayback Machine on archive.org to see it.

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.

@akhilvarkey Even if it's just the work of @manujarvinen here on display for nodevember, that's pretty high-quality representation. :)

Wheee! New episode! We’re talking in this episode! Jonas and Luca explain what Nodevember is, how it started, and how you can be a part of it yourself. These two are great fun to listen to… and while you listen, you can make your own burst of node-y goodness.

New episode is up! This go-around we've got Greg Zaal from HDRI Haven talking all about 360-degree high dynamic range images that are free for everyone, for anything.

@feoh Any show that's posted on opensourcecreative.org can now accept comments.

Fun thing happened yesterday! I got to be a guest on FLOSS Weekly to talk about using open source tools to do creative things (and a bit about my Open Source Creative Podcast). Go give it a listen (or a watch, if video is your thing)!

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.
