My Double Bass

I have noticed that I have never even posted an image of my double bass here! So here it is – a 3/4 acoustic double bass (any larger wouldn’t fit me) that I bought already ten years ago here. It’s a rather simple, reasonably priced but absolutely well-enough made Instrument. It’s got a nice sunburst finish and it’s absolutely sufficient for me for practicing (i.e. when and if I have enough time and leisure).

I gave it a (wonderfully working) homebrew piezo pickup under the bridge for almost no reason and you can see it secured to my self made wall mount in the image. Unfortunately, I suck so bloodily playing it… 🙁


Burgers!

I made me some Burgers yesterday for dinner – it’s been a long time since – and I really craved for them. I know, making Hamburgers is a quasi-religious thing, but exactly that’s why everybody makes them the way they personally like best – mine are rather simple.


Outdoor-/Fishing Knife Progress

Due to some… ahhh… “peak” in workload over the last few days, I didn’t have the time to dedicatedly work on the new knife very much. But after sanding the handle with 200 up to 600 grit sandpaper, I was finally able to apply the first coat of boiled linseed oil to it – more layers will follow. Next thing is cleaning and at least roughly polishing the blade and then – finally – sharpening. I find it looks great 🙂

See part one of the building process here if you like.


Fierce and Deadly Churrasco Swords

I found an interesting image of some churrasco spits on the internet and thought to myself: Yeah! Why not make them look like a sword? It’d be wide enough to hold any piece of meat firmly and prevent it from rotating on the spit, plus I can poke into the ground if necessary, and – plus plus – it would simply look cool.


Chicken with Mushrooms in Hoisin Sauce

Another un-fancy, yet yummy recipe you can easily memorize. It requires only a few ingredients, it’s no fuzz to make and it’s hearty and filling. Best served over rice.


Gattinas Summer Journey

So the Lady of the House, too, took the looong journey to northern germany (sleeping and, well, snoring most of the time) and now she is so content and happy with the weather, her big garden and all the interesting things to explore there.


Nature Impressions

A wonderful walk in the area of “Este” creek near the town of Tostedt, northern germany. Such beautiful nature, soothing and refreshing at the same time. Cat tax included 😀


Chicken with Hoisin Glaze

I made this these days for dinner. It’s easy and fast enough for a workday evening and it’s yummy as hell. And I will really have to work on my presentation 🙂 Here’s what you want to do:


New Outdoor-/Fishing Knife in the Making

I finally found time to continue working on my long-planned new outdoor knife. I wanted to create a sturdy, yet slender multi purpose knife to carry with me when I go fishing or into the outdoors. Here are some images:


Don’t even think about it…

I love my big, beautiful girl.
