New work in progress

So I am in making mode right now! Had a little inspiration from Eric Norman via Richard Tuttle. Or is that Richard Tuttle via Eric Norman? Semantics right? Or semiotics? It's all relative. So here is the piece:

A new chair

So I have had this chair sitting around for months. I have made molds of it, taken it apart, sat in it and just admired its simplicity and craftsmanship. So this week I finally took the leap and cut it up. Here it is in its near finished state.

Running With Scissors

What is up with the bicycle and triathalon blogs? I mean really. I don't ride a bike. I have the knowledge but not the willpower. I am not even interested in bicycling, swimming, or running. Hell I try not to even acknowledge the bicycle I own even exists. So why, when I am blog surfing, would I want to read articles about bicycles? Not just one or two but blog after blog on the topic. I think I would rather read about some under-appreciated housewife and what her kids have been up to this morning. Then there is the issue of wardrobe. No one, and I stress NO ONE wants to see me in spandex. I am also pretty sure there is a law in most states which prohibits me from wearing it in the first place. So I will continue to ignore my bike and will again this year annihilate any thoughts of entering the ironman, Bloomsday or the Tour de France. These images pretty much sum me up (socks with sandals included):

New Work

Here are some projects I have been working on of late:

I'm a Pinterest Crack Whore

Hi my name is Jon and I am a Pinterest crack whore. Something was wrong with Pinterest last night. It was not working. I couldn't login. I couldn't pin anything. What was I supposed to freaking do? Someone needed to do something! I sold off my baseball cards and bought a box of thumb tacks. It was taking too long for them to fix it so I stole my wife's Kitchen Aid mixer and took it to the pawn shop. I got 20 bucks for it. I had some prints developed at the drugstore and tacked them all over the walls but it didn't help. I was in a downward spiral. I stole my kids tooth fairy money from under her pillow, bought a photo album and filled it with pictures. I mean how sick is that? Then I hit rock bottom. I started using 35 mm film again. When I looked in the mirror in the morning I didn't recognize the face staring back at me. I didn't know who I was anymore. Now I'm on track to recovery though... Wait its back up? I'm outta here.

Coat Rack

Saw a cool coat rack on Pinterest made with old end wrenches. So I made my own version of it. I think mine is better.
