  1. No Game is Over...Till it's Over!

    Not much of a football fan myself, but my wife and I work with a Patriot fanatic (fortunately his son and daughter are full grown or I think he would have named them both Tom Brady). During the first 3 quarters of the game we kept saying "John is going to be miserable to work with", then during...
  2. Disc Golf Awards

    I made ten award plaques for a disc golf tournament at Tishomingo State Park, thus the Native American theme. The material is 3/4" solid oak with stain and three coats of poly. After several unsuccessful attempts of engraving with my Rotozip, I succumbed to the ease of laser engraving by a...

  7. Golf Trophies/Awards

    This was a little weekend project for an upcoming 4-man scramble golf tournament some of the folks at work are having tomorrow.

  8. Spur Display

    I was asked to make a display for some commemorative spurs. I had pretty short notice on these and didn't have any idea how to start. I left space on the sides to add coins latter if they so choose. I would have done it myself, but, again, short notice and limited resources. The yellow plate...

  13. Plaque for my Colonel

    So this was a project my Sergeant Major asked me to work on, now mind you I had to come up with the design and get it approved then complete it (I had two weeks). The routing of plaque took the longest and was not easy. So the first pic is the beginning of the project then of course the last...

    This is a Laker my brother and I caught on Higgins Lake a couple years ago. We were invited to Fred Trosts annual big fish celebration on PBS. It weighed almost 25 lbs. big for an inland lake.
