Sick as a dog here for the last week. Caught the latest version of the flu (throat and sinus, not stomach) and its been beating me down since last Monday.
I've struggled through a few new projects, and hope to reveal them this week.

63 is still warmer than its been here. Persisting winds off the 40 degree big lake have kept it in the low 50's.


This paddle is just insane. You're like some kind of a machine. The dedication to repeating detail is amazing.

Its going to be one hell of a piece when its finished, that is for sure.

Beautiful work Andy.

DUDE, you must be using a microscope to carve that paddle. Incredible patience you have.
