Yes, yes,... this is one of my “old” log mugs. I used to make this type of mug back when i lived near actual trees!- but there are hardly any trees here where I’m at now!—- by the way, you would NOT believe how long I had to look for a log that had a likeness of me on it!!!🤣- Cheers!
These wooden straws seem to be my most popular item lately!- Well, I’m glad you all like ‘em!-
They are approximately 9” long, lined in stainless steel for strength and ease of cleaning, finished with the same two part food grade epoxy that I use on my mugs- And- they come with a cleaning brush too!- they are $28 each and I’ll ship them to you for free in the USA!- thanks for looking-Cheers!
Oh yes!- I’m still turning wood into straws... ( gotta stay busy doing something right?).... still making mugs too! ( but, now, it takes 4 weeks to get materials delivered instead of 2 days!)... things have changed but you just keep driving forward...
I sat up all night with an artist I once knew discussing where art came from...was it from the artists mind or his hands?....
Old Bear Creek..
I make things from wood.
Some of you like what I make- and, that is what keeps me going- I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Stay safe... be good... and, I’ll see you all soon!-Cheers!
Everybody safe?- anybody got “cabin fever “yet?... stay calm, help your neighbors, maintain your distance, wash your hands, be kind to each other, and for Gods sake- quit hoarding toilet paper!-
Just a reminder:
There a great number of artists, musicians, and other entertainers who are out of work right now-I just want to take a moment to say:-SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTISTS!!!....(you can thank me later!)..
Things might be difficult right now.... but, don’t let that change you. YOU are Awesome!-stay awesome....awesome is what’s needed right now-and I believe in you...
Granted- I’ve only been in Arizona for 2 years now- but, the first 6 months I was here- I saw 3 drops of rain.— and now its been raining for 3 straight days?— wtf?-is this something that I should have been warned about?-and who’s to blame?- I want answers!!😠
Just finishing up cutting and gluing.. looked up and saw a beautiful full moon!- I swear someday I will get a proper camera so I can capture that wonderful sight!- Cheers!
I started re-watching (from the beginning...) “the walking dead”... and a few years back- I designed and produced a very limited run of the most disgusting/ disturbing drinking vessels that I’ve ever made... just to celebrate that show!- I’ve been asked to offer another limited run of these mugs...what do you think? Any interest in seeing these things again?
A few years ago - the first picture-was my shop- it was nice , big, & secure- inside , it was easy to work in and convenient.....the second picture shows my shop the last few years... it may be more difficult to get things done... and really unconventional,but, the view is totally worth it!
If your mug holds three cans of beer- that’s STILL just one beer right?....asking for a friend 😁.....
Dusty (the wonder bus!) is still waiting to get checked out tomorrow- but, in the meantime, there’s straws to work on and a nice view from my window- good music to hear and a fine breeze- everything is good!- Hope you all had a great weekend!-Cheers!
People!- that’s why I do my little wood working-people seem to enjoy what I make for them. It’s the only reason I do it. - I’ll never get rich making mugs or straws or furniture or any of the other things I make- but, I have made people smile!- and that’s what I find enjoyable- I MADE SOMEONE HAPPY!!!- you can’t do much more than that!
Leather and barn wood looks good together- i made this one a long time ago—- but I think the look is “timeless”... A barn wood sofa table with two drawers- leather accents and blacksmith made drawer pulls... do you like this style or is it too “Cowboy “...
I’ve always called these “butter knives “- but, really, they are just as good at spreading cream cheese on your bagel, or peanut butter on your toast, or even spreading rumors about your sanity as to just why you’d have a custom knife to spread your butter!...😂 ( I’m so funny!).... Cheers!
Yep... your mug on a mug IS possible... and if you are looking for a truly one of a kind of mug—- well, how could you get any more personal than this?-haha!-Cheers!!!
I carved this spoon and fork out of maple... I got the design from a plastic set that I got at a fast food restaurant...the plate is Walnut and the skull is for fun and made from birch...,
You never know where you’ll find inspiration to do or make something that hasn’t been done or made before.. but, in my experience, you gotta get off the main road to find it...so, if you are looking for inspiration, find the road less traveled.... just my two cents.-Cheers!
SO much wood...So little time...( who among us hasn’t said THAT before?)😄... ok, I got sh*t to do- talk to you later!....
Vertical stripes are supposed to make you look slimmer am I right?—- so, if you wanna look “slim “ and still have a big ass beer in your hand you should be holding one of these!😃 ( hey, I’m selling mugs here- haha!)... Cheers!
Hey there!- this is Hawaii... (pretty huh?) I have Facebook friends from pretty much every state in the United States... (except Hawaii)...and several countries around the world!.....I was just wondering why not Hawaii?-don’t they have internet there?- or maybe they just don’t like me .-
Most of you that know me... know that I live a mobile life and internet is always sketchy at best.... but today it was down for 2.7 hours!- wanna know how I know that so precisely?-well, it takes me - on average- 9 minutes to drink 1 beer... I had 18 while I waited...you do the math!
A tribute mug exhibiting the art of a fantastic tattoo artist of time long ago...
My military friends might find the humor....I was working on these the other night and it just struck me funny!...
Well, those of you who keep asking “what the hell is wrong with you?”??.. it’s work related. I’ve used this product for like 15 years- nearly every day.... so now you know- it’s probable that I have Dain Bramage....haha🤣- like you didn’t expect it all along!!!
She came up to where I was sitting behind my table...she asked if I had something “special “ for her. Well, I told her that I did indeed have something special for her... I said: “ I’ve got 9 inches of the most special hard wood that you’ve ever pressed your lips to”...she smiled and laid $28 dollars on my table... grabbed my iron wood and winked, and walked away....just another straw sale! —-what were you thinking?...🤗
Getting ready to put my supper on my plate... saw this and just about had a friggin heart attack- I hate-HATE spiders!- but... well, it was just a damn sticker thing from these darn Arizona “stab ya “ plants that landed on my plate...—almost lost my supper... 😬
You always see some kinda weird and wonderful wooden objects that someone made out of a pallet... well, I made this today out of a table, two chairs and a credenza that I had hanging around!— what do you all think?- 🤣
