I like to do everything.
No, really, everything.
I've been hoping to be an artist when I grow up and am still working on it. I currently have as my medium WOOD.
I'm also a photographer, Ex-techno-geek, industrial control panel builder, amateur plumber, home maintenance tech, and reformed steamship merchant sailor. I also spent much time working on sports cars and then worked in the merchandising trade. With my wife we conducted a business selling all things related to the fiber arts.
Other media in which I work in these days is digital art, photo restoration, drawings, animations and videos. Currently working on a rig made of wood to digitize old color slides and color negatives.
See, I told you, I like to do everything.

My Grizzly band saw has ball bearings instead of guide blocks, for both the sides and the back of the blade. I guess I was forgetting that the lower bearings, under the table, got more saw dust than the upper ones. So I blithely assumed (yes I ...
Awhile back I posted a question about the usefulness of the wood from a rose of sharon bush.My observation was that is is surprisingly white. Some lumberjocks encouraged me to dry it and see how it turned out. I took a small section from the ro...
