Holy cow bells, that's freakin' amazing work. I have talent envy, and router envy. You make using a router look easy (when I know it's not)!

Jesus H Christ Monkeyman, that is just amazing work. Having attempted using a router myself a few times, I'm really floored by the accuracy of your work.

Dang !

You're a master with the color Derek. I love that look of muted color over dark stain... one of my favorite types of pieces to create.
It gives off such a cool vintage look.

I love the designs you've got going to. You've got great control with the router and that shows in the detail you're carving.
Great PNG designs... and PNG and color go hand in hand.

There is nothing more satisfying then creating pieces like these by hand. Machine aided, but no doubt carved by hand!

Love to see your updates, I'm in a bit of a lull lately myself and seeing this great new work has inspired me to get going again.

Ive Built a mug shelf and moved in a tiki bar....

A few small changes but it continues to evolve.

Next is a roof over the bar.

Looking at that outstanding router work leaves me both amazed and downcast at the thought that I would never be able to come up with anything that good. Looks like I am going to have to try Plan B for my panels: paper mache anyone?
