Osage Orange Bokken
Typically, the traditional Japanese bokken is made of white oak.  However, I had a piece of osage that had been given to me as a bowstave that was way too damaged to make a bow (it had originally been a fence post).  It sat around my workbench for two years until I realized the curve that it had to it was perfect for a bokken.  Osage, even the straightest pieces usually has weird knots, dips, humps, and all sorts of character.  This bokken is heavy, unbalanced, gnarly, twisted, and absolutely beautiful.  I love it!

Tools used:  H&B Forge Shipbuilder's Axe, drawknife, farrier's rasp, file, 150 grit garnet paper, Minwax Satin Polyurethane.

Frontier Costume, part 1
Well, my frontier era/Buckskinning costume is halfway there.  I bought the shirt at a rendezvous a few years ago.  I originally bought it because I'm a member of the Association for Renaissance Martial Arts (our color is red) but I've decided to use it as part of my frontier outfit.  Also pictured are the neck knife I bought today, and my H&B Forge Tomahawk.  Now I just need to find some era-appropriate pants, and some moccasins.  And a less loud shirt. 
Queen of the Wild
I started playing Far Cry Primal again, and I wanted to draw :iconjojobean17:.  So this is what happened.  I love this drawing.
