Skin-on-frame kayaks are amazing. I love that I get to build them. This is just a random handful of photos of my work that make me happy.

Things I like.

This kayak was completed months ago, but has been stranded in the rafters. Conditions look great for a launch tomorrow morning. I’m excited! Hopefully I’ll have a good paddle report to check in with tomorrow afternoon.

Few random shots from the 14’-6” skin-on-frame kayak that I built in the Spring of 2012 for a San Franciscan client who had it shipped to her mom in Long Island. So rad!

More: Great Moments In Bicycle-Powered Warfare

War is an ugly business, in which whoever moves fastest and strikes first often triumphs. So long before there were tanks and planes, people used bicycles to rush into combat. For decades, people experimented with machine guns on bikes, military quadricycles, and bicycle infantry. Here are the greatest moments of pedal-powered battle strategy.

Medieval Dances - The Egg Dance
The Egg dance was one of the earliest Saxon Medieval dances and, like the Carole, was performed during a period of festivity namely the Easter-tide festivities. The  egg dance was derived from a traditional Easter game, in the egg dance eggs were laid on the ground or floor and the goal was to dance among them damaging as few eggs as possible.

I wanted to share with you our Serbian traditional way of dying Easter eggs - no artificial colors or dyes needed.

Put any leaves you like on the surface of the egg and carefully place them in a stocking. Boil these eggs in water full of onion skins. The result are beautiful, earthly colors and interesting patterns. 

Again.
