The big projects need the other parts of the brain to kick in gear. Plum bos, levels, calipers, charcoal and the calculator are employed in mapping out the Cedar log for the big guy.






In other news .both of my black locust guys were purchased last week by a return customer. So I have another black locust guy in the works. I managed to get a lot done in one days time

In a manner of speaking, yes. The model is basically a map. That is how he will look. Hopefully! The wood sometimes has Ideas of its own.

Dads party and his Birthday Present!

Dad was very happy, the family was amazed. Dad decided to name him 'Albert' after the nickname he had given me when my absent minded tendencies would kick in. (Albert Einstein, he was a space cadet too, dad though it fitting)

It is only fitting that the Man who raised and put up with me all these decades should get the best Black Locust work I have yet done. Extra effort went into it and it turned out better than expected. Dad is still calling and telling me how awesome he thinks it is! It would have been quite at home on his desk when he was a self made millionaire. It would have been perfect in his Belmont shores beach Pad back in 1965. Now he's lookin over the living room and reminding Dad that I love him. That'll work!

Happy Birthday Dad! Stick Around,

Thanks Wendy and CV!


Here is a Manzanita who is either singing Opera or just saw
a ghost. He's coming along well!

Finishing touch, Jennifer! She overshadows the 'Screamin Manzanita' guy with his first coat of teak oil.
You have to look carefully to see he is holding his face in his hands as in Edvard Munch's "The Scream" it just seemed appropriate if not traditional. He looks like I feel on some days.
