Happy Stick Day!

January 11th, 2011

Today was the best baby-Stickday of the century: 1/11/11 !  In celebration, here are a bunch of sticks:

The fifth wheel ... more of a record needle.

Gorgeous, long, strong, straight bamboo that Brian Garretson & I cut from Ross Blanchard's place.

Cutting the bamboo to size for yurt walls. (I eventually realized the table was more useful right-side up.)

Drilling went fast today! Here's a whole wall's worth of bamboo ready to lash together.

My love of bamboo borders on obsession.  I love the smell, the feel of it in my hands, the little pools of sugar sap it leaves on my basement floor … the painful splinters …

BONUS: more sticks!  Man, I’ve been one sticky mofo today.

... and this morning we hunted discarded christmas trees. (I'd tell you why, but then I'd have to set you on fire.)
