 A fine piece worked upon for days might betray your tool at the smallest mistake, and often the board seemed to split by itself. I came to believe that even a crude plank could act  with knowledge of good and evil ( and much desire to do the latter ). But then, an evil man cannot pass by a fine tree without saddening the leaves.

Still, there was wisdom to be found in doing good work. When the task went well, I was at peace.

Skeg Lamp 2.0

Someone donated another abused skeg to me. The last one was meant to a wall sconce or hung over a door. I think this is going to be a table lamp. Still looking for some glass. I stripped the paint off the first one but I like the patina on here.

Spark Plug Pendant Light

A spark plug inspired pendant light I have been prototyping. I'm still not 100% happy with it yet. I'll post more when its finished.

Submarine Sculpture

This is a submarine sculpture I've been working on for a few months now. I submitted it last weekend into the Muskoka Arts and Crafts Spring show where it won an "Award for Excellence for Sculpture". It measures about 40" long.
