Pardon the crappy picture, but I've never seen a circular rainbow before. Super cold, windy days make for some fun sunsets.
Finally found some colored pencils that weren't crazy expensive. What should I make this time?

Announcing the next big project. I've always liked working with mixed medium... I guess @dashasha87 is really doing the building of this one, but I am helping?
I've not been able to afford to keep the heat on in the shop with it being as cold as it's been, so I've tried to challenge myself with carving spoons with zero electricity. This little guy was cut from some walnut with a coping saw and chip carved with my @flexcut_tools and my curved knife.
Finished with a mineral oil soak and then an oil/was mix I've made for any food safe things I make.
I had @dashasha87 draw the patterns of my next few spoons as well, so I will have a challenge.

My latest spoon is a little different. Made from some walnut I found lying around the shop, I think it's just as good as the rest.

This would be a beautiful addition to anyone's collection!
First finished project of 2018. It's just a poplar spoon with built in spoon rest. One of my goals for the year is to slow down and to focus on details and design a little more.

Finally got a new water heater. I should have done this the years ago!
From old and busted to New Hottness!

My sister-in-law's present included this stunning Princess Gem pen with Green swirl acrylic. Pretty sure it's going to be stolen if she doesn't watch out.

A few shots of the tea light holder all lit up.

I can always use some extra love, I'm sure others could too. Follow @donkdadonk and #donkdadonk4000
I think this needs a base in the form of a black stripe painted on the bottom half inch. What do you think?
This was the first inside out turning I've done in a long time and it was supposed to go on our tree, but after getting everything balanced there wasn't enough room. I think it makes a nice tea light holder. It's made from Bocote and curly Maple.

I like to take days off to try something new. Today's adventure included eggs Benedict (meh), lamb chops (winner), with rustic bread, roasted potatoes, broccoli, and my first gingerbread men (overcooked...). Tell me though, is this Cronenberg-ian, or just a bit more of HellBoy?
I hope everyone had a great holiday today and the rest of the year.

I don't get it..... But here it is. #2017bestnine
Tonight's projects both getting started. One's a secret for now, but I will say that both use a form of soft maple.... But one is just a spoon I can carve while the glue dries.... #woodworking #carving #spooncarving #handtools #handmade #secretproject
After much too long I was finally able to deliver the Burr Oak coffee table to @mayorgoldie this last weekend. This guy is all wood with no fasteners except for the drawer slides and knob. Made from Burr Oak (Iowa's state tree!) and very heavy.
I learned a lot and am really glad for some room in my shop for some more projects.
Thanks for the opportunity Jesse!

Honey-do item number 5 of 78,356.... Done. New light for the dining room table is finally installed. Reclaimed steel bands and new silver tipped LED bulbs and a custom ceiling bracket to hold it all up there.

It's been a very long week and it's only the end of Wednesday. What do YOU do when you've got a sick wife, a dirty house, too many projects to finish and your brain is fried? I like to sit and carve something pretty.
Too bad that didn't work out so well either.
Oh well, it's still always a treat to work with red cedar, even if you only end up with half the spatula you were planning.

@aesoderlund @morakniv @hultafors
I could really use this!
Look at this lazy little turd. She loves my wife. Me? Not so much. But she makes @dashasha87 happy, so she can stay.
