To be honest, I never thought I would like carving. Yet, it's another example of a new-found appreciation for something I could only gain through first hand experience. These simple little spoons can take hours to make! Respect. Expect to see some available in the shop in the not-to-distant future.

Every year Backwoods Solar has a photo competition for their upcoming catalog cover. I took this picture a couple of months ago now it graces the cover of the Backwoods Solar 2014 catalog.
It arrived in the mail about a week ago.
For those who don't know, the Backwoods catalog is one that everyone pours through when dreaming of going off grid. I spent many mornings sitting quietly next to the wood stove sifting through the pages.
These people know their stuff too. Nearly everyone at Backwoods lives off the grid so when they're helping you over the phone, they're doing so with first hand experience.
