About Lyman Edwards

A multi-talented dude from the swampy woods of North Florida, Lyman has a couple blogs chronicling his adventures and art endeavors. Lyman's art is about community and social action, and is centered around wood fired pizza ovens that he builds, currently in Asheville, NC. These adventures can be followed at His other blog,, follows his encounters with vintage machines of transportation. Twenty plus years of maintenance and restoration and his propensity for fine art and craftsmanship give him a keen eye and steady hand when breathing new life into these old motorcycles, cars, and boats.

Move it on over…

Just changed my blog over to the new address: Working out some bugs with images, but the content is all there. Keep an eye on progress there now instead of here! Word. Lyman Advertisements
