My mom made the comment so time ago that it would be nice to have something with poodles. As I try to do what my mommy asks I made the following.
Milo and Morgan are miniature poodles with
phantom coloring. She got them at
Sisco’s Distinctive Poodles http://siscospoodles.com

I did not make these – Milo & Morgan enjoying the afternoon.
The silhouette piece was made using a picture of
Just to make sure Dad does not feel left out, I made him this.
Love You Too Dad!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful lady.
Lillian Watanbe is one who has grasped entrepreneurial spirit. She opened and owns her own business. I took a few moments to make this for her. This is her logo and her family crest.

I have had the pleasure of knowing several veterans.
War 2, Korea Vietnam, Grenada,
Gulf War and Iran.
Hope I am not missing any.
When I was 17 and had no real direction in my life a very important person in my life suggested my joining the military. A few months later I enlisted in the US Air Force. This is one of the best things I did.
Here are some pieces I made for a couple of Vets.
On this Veteran’s Day I wish to say Thank You to all of the Veterans in my life and through out the world.

Well here I am middle age and I decided to start a new chapter in life. I never went to college so it was suggested I might want to start.
So I have signed up and am starting college on line with
. I am really looking forward to this. University
So I made these two signs for myself. One for the shop and one for my desk I am using for school work. I am working on deciding which one goes where.
The one down side is the fact that I might not have as much time in the shop. I suspect that the time I do get will be special. I will continue working on projects and sharing them, just not as often.

|Before the haircut.|
I have a 16 year old son. He has been growing his hair out for some time now (1 ½ to 2 years now). Starting several months ago he came to me saying he wanted to get 10+” cut off so he can donate it to Locks of Love http://www.locksoflove.org/. He did the research and picked the origination he wanted to donate to.
I find it is becoming more and more rare to see someone his age consider someone other than themselves. Some people refer to us as the Me Generation. So with all of these, the pride I feel is great. Here are some before, during and after pictures.
Thanks to Kaying Beauty Salon in
for doing a wonderful job! Clovis
Love You Son!

My youngest son turned 16 this week. He has started collecting old and antique bibles. Well he has no place to put them, so dad goes to the shop and makes one. Below are pictures of the book shelf made of pine.
The symbol on the side is a tribal version of a Triquetra. Some call is a Celtic Cross. In the Christian use it refers to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. If you would like to read more on this I would suggest you go to this Wikipedia site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triquetra
Happy 16th Josh! We Love You!

Sorry it has been awhile for a post. Between the heat (110 yesterday) and my “daytime job” I have not had a lot of shop time.
Steve Good had created a pattern for a vase. This was something I did not think I could pull off because of the angled cuts. Each piece is cut at a 15 degree angle. I ended up deciding to give it a shot. After lots of sanding and several coats of polyurethane here is the final product.
Below is a picture of an upcoming project.
