    Me too. I thought based off the last update a few weeks ago that we’d have shipping info by now

    I'm sure that @Dan Morrison is working on it. We'll start getting to it soon enough.

    Not completely finished, he still has to wax it and do a couple things but I think it looks amazing. Can't wait to get it and try it out! (Dan said the streaking in the paint will naturally go away when he applies the wax in case anyone was wondering.)

    Another beauty! :clap:
    I think a natural green/raw Kraft combo would be what I went for if Dan had felt unable to do the ox-blood red I requested.
    Looking forward to seeing it's final waxed look :nod:.

    Every-one's a winner baby, that's no lie!
    He never fails to satify, Dan's our guy!

    :disgust: I'll get my coat....

    So excited to see another batch go out into the wild. You guys are going to be so jazzed when it arrives, I use my #36 almost every single day. Really the only time I don't use it is when I'm running low on material- then I just use the vapcap. Can't wait to see all the pics. Cheers and happy labor day, D.

    Yay B-b-b-batch Numbah Three leaving the nest! I’m 95% happy for all you guys and 5% cos I’m one step closer to the prize! Thirty more out the way! Now all I need is a greater percentage than usual to pass when Dan calls their number.

    Hmmm. Maybe if there was uncertainty in the global economy, people might decide to pass this round! Now how can I make that happen??Anybody know anything about voodoo? Hell, I’ll settle for some hoodoo... I don’t care. HMU

    Such gorgeous work! I’ve got a while until my number is up. Love seeing the Nomad porn in the meantime.

    Just got a look at mine, I went for an unusual wrap & was a bit unsure about my choice after seeing all the beautiful pics here.

    The paper I picked is the same as the wallpaper in my bedroom when I was a kid in the 70s. I didn’t like it back then but when I saw Dan the same paper available I just had to have it.

    Turns out it looks fantastic on the Nomad.

    Maybe I’ll look into a new image hosting site so I can share. I haven’t bothered uploading pics on FC since the Imgur thing.

    Love your work Dan!

    Same for me! @Dan Morrison absolutely crushed mine! The way he aligned the paper on various sides is nothing short of perfection. I cannot wait to get this in my hands

    Just got pics of mine...for the first time in a while, I’m actually going to try and post a pic...haven’t since the Imgur bullshit. I went simple, all cherry, nothing exotic, Abalone button. But the paper...it’s this deep dark black cherry with red dragonflies. Fuck me to tears, this is craftsmanship on a different level.

    I have no idea how Dan does this and eats. The attention to detail, divided by the time, volume and price is beyond my comprehension.

    I received pics of mine as well...but my paper is not on the sleeve yet. I would feel weird posting pics of it naked like that.
    I'll be posting as soon as I have finished pics!

    I love seeing y'alls pics so far. Every one of them is a beautiful work of functional art :clap:


    **edit**

    Ya know what, fuck it...y'alls family.
    Here is my naked Nomad beauty, just waiting on it's lacquered yuzen:
    Be nice though. She's young, and very self conscious like this

    Golden amboyna burl body, with african blackwood collar.

    It's gonna really "pop" when that black & red paper is on the sleeve.

    @Ramahs do you mind reminding me which paper you chose? I know we share a similar taste on several things and now you got me wondering if we both like the same pattern.

    @Copacetic red & black are one of my all time favourite combinations. Was definitely leaning towards something in that combo... but I’ve got plenty of time to obsess over the details and vacillate endlessly. I’m not in a hurry to get all OCD over it yet because once decided then all that’s left is the waiting. Which is the hardest part.

    Thanks to all for posting with your exciting news and please PLEASE take the time and make the effort to post a picture. It’s worth a thousand words, you know. Sucks that the uploading process is rather convoluted here (and definitely limits how often I bother) but even if you never do it again, go on and share one with us please! The more Nomads the better! From a previous batch and still haven’t posted a pic of it here? WTF?! Get on that shit!

    Love seeing all these current units getting close to being finished. :love:
    Been doing my initial consultations and idea crunching e mails with Dan on Nomad #133.
    Going with one of my favorite species, Koa for the body and a Cocobolo collar with an Abalone button.
    Went with a calm under water scene paper to be the yin to the yang of my rough Tsunami scene on #001.
    Dan is great to work with. He put alot of thought into some of my sleeve ideas and wood choices, and was willing to take on some of the more challenging sleeve ideas. But in the end, I kept it more simple. If you can call anything Dan does, simple.
    Mock up of Nomad #133 :luv:

    You didn’t get a number as soon as you sent in your email?
    You are going to have to go to the back of the line for sure.
    Oh well @pxl_jockey you really should have been more diligent.




    (When your batch comes up and you commit to buying one, Dan will let you know your number. )
