Fantastic or not?

Tonight I had some time in the shop and tried a little letter carving.  You be the judge.  Fantastic or not?

One down, several more to go.  Just takes a steady hand and some sharp chisels.

Thanks to Kari Hultman for the inspiration and some great tips on the letter carving technique.

Well, what do you think?  Let it all hang out.  We're in the trust tree.

Woodworking Doodles

This is what happpens when a woodworker is stuck on a boring conference call.  I've had leg vises on my mind lately.

In case you were wondering, SketchUp is just an enabler for my natural tendencies.
