I think this may well take the cake as my favorite celebrity. Mr. Offerman, aka Ron Swanson not only plays the most manly of man, but he is. Cedar Strip canoes? check Chainsaws as large as his man parts? Check. Facial hair second to none? Check.

 

To a Man among Men. Salute!

Bikes and Bookmarks

After my last bike bash, and my brief absence, I decided to come on back with some more biky-bits. I was crawling around and found this. Fairly afforable bamboo bike frames? I’m totally down, but I do have a strong DIY bone in me, so I may not be giving my money up to the aptly named Bamboocycle.com. I vaguely remembered a DIY.com instuctable for taking an old bike and using the fittings to make a custom bamboo frame. The thing that gets me is how easy this would be to do. The only thing I am worried about is the spray foam support  inside the frames.   The one made by the DIY site is much better looking as well

Work Horse?

This table is exactly what I imagine myself crafting at. Heavy and grounded, though those steel feet are a little light for my taste.

Hopefully I will be coming into my own large amount of salvaged lumber from a barn. If so, rest assured, I will be make three or four of those bad boys. Craigslist here we come!
