Curious about him and found several pictures of some of his more radical works, plus the industrial robot he uses for some of his sculptural work. Interesting guy.

CNC users, eat your hearts out.

He was definitely an artist at heart.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

WOW, Scott!!! You are really really accomplished. I humbly bow down to you.

Hope RainMan doesn't see those neat power tools.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
