Small boi! This small bowl (3.75 x 1.125 in) was turned from a maple branch that I collected last year. I’m assuming that those black streaks were the beginnings of some spalting. Damn, maybe I should have waited another year. #makesomething#woodenbowl#smol#maple
I spent 2 mornings this week playing "Craft Lady" with kids at Maker Camp. (#dreamjob)
Why do you do what you do? Do you consider yourself to be #selfemployed? I consider myself to be a #smallbusiness. I'm a #woodworker, a #maker. I love being able to provide a service to my #customer or #client. I love knowing that I created something unique for someone. That a part of me has become a part of their life. Whether it is a sign or a clock or a shelf or a table, it has become a part of their home. A centerpiece with which something else is built around.
In being an #entrepeneur, I am in control of my own fate. I decide how well the service is that I provide to my client. I decide how much effort I put into a project. It gives me a great sense of pride when I see a photo of the clock I made hanging on the wall in a customer's house, or I hear that the sign my client gave as a gift was so well received, and someone else wants one just like it. That sense of accomplishment pushes me to work harder, to venture out and try new things. I look forward to the next project, and I look forward to seeing what I'm actually capable of. Go out and #makesomething!

The #eyeofvlad is slowly progressing! I’m kind of into #videogame lore and this is actually a piece from the #castlevania franchise. I’m shooting for it looking like it was kept in #dracula castle. Still have the lid and movement mechanism.
