Butterflies may have jumped the shark

This afternoon i was touring the new office space of one of my clients (tech startup) when my host pointed out their new tables. Inlaid brass butterflies work pretty well in the “industrial chic” of their new office.

Then I happened to notice the oddly consistent need for split control and became suspicious.

Is it just me or do those look like saw marks in that split?

This will cut into my Woodworking Time

So my wife and I did something crazy.  Like, I still wake up in the middle of the night wondering if this was a terrible idea.  We bought a “ranch” in northern Wyoming…

The property has been neglected for decades and I just spent a few days exploring and figuring out what needs work (short answer is everything) and the scale of this project is a bit overwhelming.  There is no house at the moment (it burned down) but there is a garage/workshop that needs a new roof.  I’m sure the seller will being clearing some of it out but I might end up with some functional tools.
