Habitat for Humanity ReStore bass project

Just finished a new electric bass for the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Beaverton Oregon.

Everything was sourced from materials that came into the store. The cherry lumber had come in as scrap and an old bass was dropped off, even though we normally don’t take instruments.

This will be given back to the store to be sold in the next few days.

Smoking hot electronics

I’ve just recently started the transition from regular tobaccos to an electronic option… Yeah for me! There has been a lot of bad press about this technology and the vapor liquids being used but I find most of it is either unfounded, exaggerated or just plain stupid. When you have a 20 year smoker say they quit easily in 3 days, it’s worth doing some research about it.

My first thought was that I wasn’t too keen on the ‘stick’ style vaporizers I was used to seeing out there. After talking with the folks at Aloha Village Vapor, I realized there are other options. Below is the pipe I recently got. It’s much like smoking a pipe without the annoying fiddley bits, like having to re-light constantly.

It looks and feels, mostly, like a pipe but just a little heavier. You don’t really have the option to let hang from your mouth but that is frowned upon by most pipe smokers anyway.

For the adventurous types there a some pretty extreme option so out there. The one shown below is a monster, but so Damn cool looking it almost hurts.

It would normally have a small mouthpiece attached at the top.

Check it out and, if inclined, enjoy. I plan to.

Sold!

Had an instrument sell recently. Made from reclaimed flooring (mahogany) then donated to the Habitat for Humanity where the materials came from.

Creating things with skulls.

I’ve always been fascinated by bones and skulls and recently found dead a local shop where I can pick some up. Now, on to the creative process. 🙂
