These wood shells are made by Steven Garrison from Arkansas, United States.
He has said:
” I like to try to create things that are unique and off the beaten path.
Not everything I make I consider “Art”, but I do have fun with it anyway. ”
And I agree with him , these shells are totally unique and making them was certainly fun .
On his website he has a e-book, “Wood Shells – A New Art Form” where he gives detailed instructions on how to make wood shells like these.

You know you’re a woodworker if/when:
1. a man tells you you have nice legs, and it doesn’t even occur to you that he might not be talking about your table or chair.
And maybe you’re a woodworker if/when:
1. You find yourself telling a guy you like his legs.
2. You ask a forum full of men “You want to see my legs”?
3. You like a man telling you that you have nice legs.
4. all your good clothes end up as shop/work clothes within a year of buying them due to that one more thing in the shop before running to work…
