    Just like the title says, this is to show what's going on in my life. The last year has been crazy busy, with a "new" house, getting more of my business up and running, getting engaged, and planning a wedding. The big day won't be until next July, but there's always something to be done.

    Here's the house with some before and after pictures. Money is a little tight, so the kitchen just got a new stove, and some paint to match the 70's linoleum.

    As always, there's never a shortage of things to do.

    Oh man, I envy you that stove!!

    Reminds me of my yard in the house I had in San Diego. new development, pulverized granite with zero organic matter. A yard was a challenge. Congrats and good luck.

    Ok, so over the past few weeks, I've been playing with making a paring knife. The first one had quite a few problems, and I can't tell you how hard a tapered octagon is to make well. Just finished my second tonight, fixing most of the problems I found with the first. Here's a few pictures of the second knife, and one with the first in the same photo. Next, it is off to some local chefs to play with, so I can get some feedback with how it functions (since my opinion is obviously a little biased). The second parer is aeb-l hardened to 62 hrc, brass ferule, and bocote handle. Blade is 25/32" high at the heel, and 2 7/8" long from the heel to the tip.
