Still loving my G43 stand, mate. Just love it.Yo VA! It's been too long!
Happy New Year to everyone and I hope your holidays went swimmingly.
My new job is keeping me very busy at the moment and I'm looking forward to a week off late February to hook up with @Ed's TnT and @phattpiggie in Vegas for Champs.
I've been primarily cranking out plug-in induction heaters since my last visit and of course some holiday gifts for the in-laws and my family.
I just got an order for two G43 stands so I only have one left. I'm surprised that I sold 19 out of 20 so far as production on the G43 has slowed down considerably.
These 2 are padauk and canarywood.

This Mobile Executive might be my last battery powered IH purely because the battery adds so many failure points. I haven't had any problems yet, but can't afford to put myself in a position to cover shipping back and forth when so many are international. I might reconsider later but I love the simplicity of the plug-in heaters.
Anyway, this one is walnut, wenge and purpleheart.

I prototyped the Cow-catcher IH. The prototype was in 150 year old reclaimed chestnut.
This was a fun one. My first production Cow-catcher in bloodwood, wenge and purpleheart.

4 Zombies in bocote, canarywood, chakte viga and one in purpleheart/canarywood. That was a crazy piece of canarywood!

I've got a few things in the pipeline too but I'm having trouble finding the time at the moment. Hopefully work will settle down a bit and I can spend some evenings and weekends testing out some ideas.
Thanks for looking and I hope everyone is kicking butt!
