That Bald Guy with the Big Beard
Bishop, CA
Im am amature herpetologist and semi-pro photographer. Ive worked with fish and game on reptile and amphibian surveys and habitat restoration projects, helped write guidebooks, and even documented a simple recessive genetic trait in a local wild snake population.

Im also a big fan of Mopars. I had an all original 66 Dodge Dart for a while that i sold to take care of my kid many years ago when we were struggling. I miss that car...

Fragrances for me! I enjoy cultivating a curated collection of fine fragrances. I also adore alliteration.

Examples:

NeoXerxes, clearly you calculated and collected quite comprehensively your cache of colognes.

I've started to carve and make my own slingshot frames. I'm just getting started, but am loving it.

Here are a few naturals as well as a few from Baltic Birch Plywood. Not a bad hobby when you can make 10 frames from a $3 piece of ply and some time.

Laid out:

Very cool work @bruce. Love the grain in that last piece.

Are those patterns in the first examples your design? I like the "Green Hornet" too.

The naturals are just wood from my yard.

The templates were all just grabbed from forums and Google. There are a ton of free templates out there for use with hardwood Ply.

I'm loving it so far and glad to be back in the wood shop utilizing some of my tools.

The green one was a mistake that I made the best of. The router got a little crazy, so I took out a layer of ply, added some cut out holes and decided to try some white wash paint with green acrylic.

Took me a minute to come up with an alliterative response Smile Thanks for the offer on scents- it is an area that I enjoy reading/hearing more about.
