    An enthusiast from the UK recently commissioned a custom Axiom, the smallest frame in my lineup. He wanted woods that corresponded to the letters in his first name PAT. Here it is, I went a little further than P-A-T, as I tend to get carried away when someone gives me blanket artistic freedom!<br><br><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-f1Kj4xUVkiA/TnKrhCZ9_OI/AAAAAAAAAYQ/439emctVKdw/s512/IMG_3170.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-vwam6IAJnes/TnKrjSovB8I/AAAAAAAAAYU/Sf_4Mzy9kWA/s576/IMG_3174.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-TPRx-rBhsEE/TnKrkY_vYMI/AAAAAAAAAYc/dl_UyE9UPwQ/s512/IMG_3176.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-QDCYfxxCFYQ/TnKs06UQvHI/AAAAAAAAAYo/WDrwPvgaocI/s576/IMG_3174.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-EPbee1iantc/TnKuDVf4nAI/AAAAAAAAAQs/uPACSw3SIc0/s640/IMG_3177.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><br>If you are interested in having custom creation made for yourself, send me a message and I will help you find your next favorite slingshot!

    Wow - woodworking taken to the extreme.<br><br>Don't you love the smell of the Thuja when you work on it? Thuja and olive wood are the most pleasantly smelling wood types I ran across.

    Yea, thuja smells like the pencils I used in elementary school. Brought back a load of memories.<br><br>Another wood I recently worked with that had a pleasant smell was Verawood, often substituted for true Lignum Vitea.<br><br>I love working with wood! Almost like meditation as you bring the tree back to life!
