It might be sooner if I get a bug up my ass.
I'm 1,303 days from leaving my current job and location and doing something absurd.
The absurdity level could be off the charts that many days from now. Hopefully it's something big!
You've got me beat by two weeks! I just checked, my plan is actually 1316 away lol.
Not a clue. My 55th birthday is when I'll be close to the 30 year mark with the company and I'll be in a position to move out of Illinois and start something new. All I know is, I'm done with the industry I'm in. I might look at getting a job at a factory and ride out the following ten years assembling widgets.
Thet got widgets in West by God Virginia.
No idea if/when I can retire. Will be 50 in 6 months, and "official" retirement age is 67 for me, but really hope I can do it earlier.
I’m shooting for partial retirement any trying to convince myself that Japanese Ikigai is the way to go.
Ikigai - rough translation: happiness through staying busy/find your purpose.
If your purpose is drinking beer, fishing, and harassing family members, you're already there. Good job!
I don't usually go with the wild stuff but here's some recent scales and blocks that I've picked up off of Instagram recently from a few different suppliers. (Phoenix Knife Handles, Fleming Wood Supply, and King & Queen Woods)
Top: Bog Oaks & a Big Leaf Maple Burl
Bottom: Box Elder Burl
Here's the booty that I sent off to have stabilized (K&G) nothing fancy but some really nice grain.
Top Left to Right: Wormy Chestnut, Bocote, Black Walnut, Maple, (Mesquite burl at far right)
Bottom Left to Right: Honduran Mahogany & Cherry
For scale, they're sitting on 5" wide boards.
Some awesomeness forthcoming...
Can’t wait to see what it becomes.
Great looking selection, but the Big leaf maple burl....that's some gorgeous stuff!!
Thanks for the video, very helpful, and gotta give kudos out to your Co-Host!
Spalted Maple from the Wheel of Death!
Damn that's beautiful Scott!
Thanks John, that was buried in the wood pile looked like rotten garbage. It was amazing to see what was inside.
Fill it up with pretzels and I will bring the beer!
The Wheel of Death has been kind!
Beautiful stuff, Scooter!! I think one of your best!
