Have you trained your cat to use the hidden cat door in the bookcase to retrieve bottles of wine from the cellar?

Oh, PLEASE.

Additionally, I have crapped most of the alphabet in both cases (in various fonts) and all the punctuation marks. Never occurred to me to "document" the set. Surely I am not alone here.

I made this for our Christmas tree one year:


I made this bullet hole out of gum and a wallmart makeup kit last year for Halloween. I think it's as good as any bullet holes I've seen on TV...


I made this out of a flat wall in a friend's house.


The thing I'm most proud of though (well, you know...other than kids and stuff...) is that I made my back better.

My back used to go out about once per month for a week at a time. Could barely move. It was because I broke it in a motorcycle wreck back in 01, but mostly because I had gotten lazy physically.

For the past 11 months I have gone to the gym every week day for at least one hour. I use the entire gym but really focus on my core. I have put on 20 pounds of muscle, lost about 20 pounds of fat and my back has only hurt for 2 days in these past 11 months.

Good health to you all!

Fully polished stainless steel beer can crusher. I made it for a customer who gave it to his father as an 80th birthday present.

The linkage goes over center and makes the can about 1/2" tall.

He was originally going to put a Harley grip on the handle but I talked him out of it. $450.00

Four cats, sadly none of them can read so asking one to retrieve a bottle is a hit or miss proposition.

Don't want to be dragging the Isosceles out for the hard drinking relatives now do we.

The little door is there for the cat-box. Ack! the three female cats figured this out right off. The male? That took some training. I guess he leaves the lid up too.

A bicycle rack that is compatible with a Jessie rack. It pops off with a flip of the two levers.

The bike sits at an angle so it is in the draft of the motorcycle rider.

some iron dug out from the garden made for good footrest extenders to allow my 4 year old on my crappy honda commuter.





Also some arms with pads from an old office chair, stopped him falling off sideways and helped him learn to lean with the bike, as he had no choice.



All made from scrap and allowed the wife to feel happy he was secure for his first 'proper' bike rides.

Designed and built all but the printed signage. For scale, the posts are 6x6s and the word Blackberry is at about 6' up. That fucking rock in the middle had to be about 6-700 lbs, about half is buried.

Still working on this one... It's a sortof scale model of my 76 RD400.



I've probably got about 35 hours in it so far, and another 5 or so to go. All steel and stainless. Hopefully it will be finished within a week or so.
