I have been using a large handled knife that belonged to my great grandfather quite a bit in the workshop. The large handle makes the knife super comfortable to use. I made a simple leather sheath for the knife.

KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

I made a little laptop stand/table to enable a laptop to function better as a second monitor and raise the camera (in said laptop) to a better angle. The stand was 90% complete in one week, but somehow tweaking with the thing and adding the shelf above the drawer took up a second week. So, this time, I present Kevin’s Art Project of Two Weeks (KAPOTW)….

I ‘enhanced’ a recent photo of a series of circles/windows in a concrete structure with some digitally-painted additional color and texture elements. The biggest change was increasing the size of the second (smaller) circle/window and fixing its dynamic range.

I made a basket for the cat that loves leather. The cat loves to sleep in a little wicker basket that is falling apart (see last picture, below), so I made a similar one out of leather.

I ran across the words “cowboy over infinity” in one of my notebooks. I do not remember writing it or what it was supposed to mean. This week, for the KAPOW, I painted it.

Sometimes you make something so strange that you do not really know what it is, or why you made it. This week’s project is one of those. I started with an interesting piece of driftwood that had a curl at the bottom. The curl twisted up toward the top, making a circle. I filled that circle with epoxy resin and made a swirl rising from the center. The entire thing was coated in epoxy resin (making it really, really glossy!) and an abstractly painted base was made. All in all, it came out quite odd.
