    Just finished making this sheath for my new blade . Now I just need to figure out how I want it to hang. I'm leaning towards a dangler.

    Been working on some new artwork for the house. Unfortunately to blend the streaks to look like feathers takes a lot of paint... So i have to wait at-least a full day to blend in the next color..

    Currently working on a Wood Duck :) And yes the eye looks even creepier in person...

    Managed to make the piece of trim to remake an old window sill this weekend. Got it all stained and ready to put back in today I hope.

    If I had a router table I could make the proper finished edge but I haven't found one of those yet...

    Remodeled the bathroom. Forgot to take some before pictures but suffice it to say it's much nicer now.

    Finished up the chicken coop today that my daughter wanted. It’s pretty much to county structural code including hurricane ties tying the base to the roof. Should survive at least a cat1 lol.

    made a large pile of brush today - had an elm growing into the back fence and over the past couple of years it had started to lean in as well.

    Welded up a small trailer for some friends' farm. It's a light duty single axle that someone added a second axle and some braces to at some point and then put too much weight on.

    I wouldn't use it because I've seen me weld but they seemed to be happy with it...

    Pics when phone feels like it (fun of a 7yr old smart phone that gets banged around more than *insert fun phrase here*).

    Made a stand for my plate carrier. Used an old cutting board I made for the base. All the pipe is going to get a coat of paint and the cutting board is going to get stained dark.

    Made a stand for my euro mount. Swivels in both directions to let you get the best view.
