A little Jacaranda. A little bark. A little CA, Howards Feed-n-Wax, and Shellac. A little eccentric turning between centers for the lid. And now, a little Scotch and a little show and tell. It’s not much. But, it began this morning and ended this evening. I’ve been spending a little money on some new tools lately. I’ll have some more in a couple days. I can’t hardly not use them. Right?
Thank you. And, I apologize.

OMG – That is exquisite! The style, the proportions, the combination of colors/shapes/textures. A beautiful fusion of Minimalisms, Modernism, and Naturalism. It has a very serene, meditative quality – I see a stylized figure of a seated Buddha in a pose of quiet contemplation. Everything about this one is perfect.

What they said Mark.
Looking good.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
