Manly Soap Review

I've posted up the first installment of my Etsy Manly Soap Review on my other blog:

Why is it on the other blog???

Because the other blog get's more smelly readers, and this info is probably more applicable to them than it is to my Mom, who is likely responsible for half of the views this blog has gotten so far.... :D It keeps this blog about the carving, and frankly, it doesn't matter what I smell like when I'm carving. The other blog is all about everything else in my life.

What is the "Manly Soap Review"???

I ordered a bunch of different soaps from different vendors on Etsy, after researching the available options to the best of my ability. I specifically looked, and asked, for Manly scents and strengths, because I tend to have strong, manly smells to do battle with. I'll be posting only reviews of the specific soaps I like, and only positive reviews. I'm not here to slam anyone on something they put their heart into. So if I find one I don't like, you'll hear nothing of it.

What is "manly Soap"???

In my own personal, highly subjective definition: A strong soap that get's the stink and dirt off and replaces it with a manly scent. Duh. I went with mostly 'woodsy' type scents, plus a few others. I really have very little experience with colognes or designer 'odors', so I'm fairly new to this whole game. A dirty slate waiting to be cleaned.

Again, the First installment is here:, and I'll post a notification of future installments here on this blog.

Thanks, -Sean

New Carving and some Fresh Photos

I've uploaded new photos for Willy and Huck to my etsy. They're previous photo(s) were decidedly lacking in depth and information. The new pics can be seen by clicking on the photos below:

I've also uploaded a brand new, just finished today carving called Scarcrow. Relax, Mom, it's not as creepy as it sounds. Scarcrow is a somewhat cute little birdhead carved out of cottonwood bark. I like to leave some of the original surface of the bark intact, to add texture and retain some of the chunk of bark's original character.

Halloween Sale comes to an end.

Back to business as usual. Expect more carvings in the shop this week. I spent most of last week working on some custom orders. Yesterday was spent on a fantastic bike ride in Hatcher Pass, photos of which can be seen on my other blog here:
