I just finished a custom made Shaman's rattle for a client. The elk antler piece was from a mountain lion kill just outside the Indian Peaks Wilderness in CO. I also picked up a couple of the found feathers there (raven and woodpecker) as well as some quartz and feldspar gravel for placing inside the rattle along with dried corn, amethyst & jasper chips, and a Madagascar laser quartz crystal.

The fox face was backed with deer leather and stuffed with natural fiber; the eyes are onyx. All the feathers in the fan were found, including wild turkey, swan, raven, woodpecker, and bluejay. The wire-wrapped quartz crystal is accompanied by coral and turquoise beads.

The rattle head is elk rawhide; leather wraps, lacing, and fringe are purple dyed deer leather. Fox fur trim.

jesus edge,
gettin intimate with the spirits.
looks like inspired work.

keep going down skewed planes of understanding,
clients eat that shite right up and throw money as if
you offered some salvation from the mundane!

me?
i've been peeling miles of trees,
and drilling into the heart of rocks.

both of these pursuits are quite
brutal but anytime you
hike up the skirt of reality,
it's gettin tough.

im innit up to somewhere,
pictures forth coming
once i dodge the heat.

Maybe you got a drillin' drone set up.

Sometimes modern is cool. The treads ride on the single stringer. Of course,
none of this is legal so I built a balustrade out of 3/8 CDX and 2x3's to
get the final and then started over. All the wood is bamboo; the treads are
a full 2" thick! I made the dresser, too. Your do not deceive, the backs
of the four left, or right from the front, sections of the dresser have
Plexi backs. I'm not sure the owner ever cogently expressed a rational reason
why he wanted them that way. It might have been some sort of paranoia about
somebody sneaking up the stairs on him. He is a lawyer after all.

This is a 1200 cc BMW two wheel drive side car I finish this fall. The side car is all hand made out of aluminum. Kind of a neat feature there’s a drive shaft that runs from the rear wheel of the bike to the side car wheel.

Pretty cool Eh? Dawg.

Very cool contributions from everyone! Double Wow on that sidecar! I know how much work that would be. How many hours on that thing you figure?

Tony- No I didn't build those kayaks, I wish I had those kind of skills! I think my sled handles better in the snow... ;) funny thing is you actually get better traction on water but sleds sure don't float!
Those kayaks are my landlords.. He's got a ladder on one of them and its crushing the skirt lip. It's actually quite a shame. They never get used, just sit there..

I been slacking on my repair. I was waiting for that pto cover and the weather has been excellent for climbing. Still managed to get my carb done last week tho.

I gapped the rings to .016 which is the tightest that spi recommends. Bombi says you can push it to .010 but that seems a bit much.

Big Mike... tsk, tsk, tsk... using an iced tea can to soak or hold carb parts in. Where's the old steel Bud can? Are you building this machine and giving it to a little girl?





(BTW, I love this kind of rebuild. Well done!)

reilly maybe im too real,
we digested everyone of those
wheat grass seeds,
and then fished them out of our
stool;
we thought it
might accelerate the
germination.
