This is my miniature painting website/blog if anyone is interested. I do not sell anything. It’s just a site to show my paintings and maybe in the future, process and that sort of thing. It’s not a finished site by any means. I’ve only posted a few paintings so far. The name bigghorn comes from a stuffed animal my son carried with him when he was little. It was a horned monster, but it had one horn that was slightly larger than the other (which he apparently saw) and so he called it “bighorn”. I had too lug that thing around for years, always looking for it whenever we went to grandmas ( because we dare not leave without it). So though it’s days are long over (he’s 15 now), I thought that I’d name my site in its honor. I obviously couldn’t get a domain with the word “bighorn” so I had to go with “bigghorn” with two “g”s. So it’s not a misspelling! www.bigghorn.com Thanks, Ben
Below is a great link I use every once in a while; it's the Wood-Database. Here you can browse through woods by common name, scientific name or appearance. http://www.wood-database.com/wood-identification/ I've found it be a helpful guide to select the right kind of woods for the various jobs i'd had. It also was helpful to determine what sort of woods were in a big package of assorted veneers that i'd bought online once. Besides that there are lots of articles on all sort of wood related subjects. For instance; http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/wood-allergies-and-toxicity/ If you didn't know it yet, I highly recommend the read. It's something i think we should all be aware of when working (our power tools) in a dusty environment. Some woods are not as innocent as they might seem and can cause serious harm to our lungs or skin. Even if you are using a form of dust extraction, it's better to be safe then sorry
