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.

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.

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

Must.resist.opening.

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

Today I learned that I can use my reMarkable tablet as a pressure sensitive drawing tablet for my computer. Badass!

Yay! I finally got a comment server (Isso, if you're curious) working on my podcast site. Took a lot more effort than I expected, but it works!

Guess I should make an episode about this. :)

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.

@aldersprig that part of the world isn't particularly dense with population and the event is outdoors, so that helps.

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.
