Once lost but now I’ve been found.

So what’s been up with you? My life is pretty random. Some people are known for doing one thing. For some reason my brain can’t. I need to make things and learn new things.

I think I have artistic ADD!

Over the last year I have become engrossed in wood turning. While I love it, I have had the desire to make knives too. I have been watching YouTube and it looks so much fun!

So much fun I decided to buy some steel and with a grinder and a hell of a lot of hand sanding I finally made my own 8″ chef knives. I still plan on turning bowls but for now I plan on honing my knife making skills. Here are my first two knives. Thoughts?

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Until then,

Stay Random!

Pardon the dust

Pardon our dust Why is it I have no problems making websites for other people but struggle with making one for myself? As I get comfortable with this sites layout I will make more design changes.

If you have any advice on widgets or layout, let me know. I love to be inspired.

until then, Stay Random!

Welcome! What do you do?

artfullyrandom_art makes you happy.jpgWhat do you do? I wonder if that’s an American phrase or if other cultures asked a similar question. To me it’s a question that hides another question.  it’s not what do you do.  it’s what defines you? 

I tell people I’m an artist but I love to do more than art. I love to paint draw, make bowls on a lathe, play guitar and design graphics and website, make soap and fly falcons. 

I don’t know if I have ADD but I can never just do one thing. Some of my friends just do one thing and they do it well. I wish I could be like them. I’d love to have one focus and hone it daily. 

Maybe I’m a wandering generality. Maybe I’m just a random guy who has add. Whatever I am, I wanted a way to show other people how to do fun stuff like make soap or carve a bowl or whatever random thing that’s caught my attention. So I thought a blog would be a fun platform. 

So welcome to my blog. I hope you like the random things I make. 

Stay Random : )
