« Part 12: Showing some more of my cards ! Part 13 of Thorsen Table Challenge series Part 14: A Video of my table entry »

I now have 3 apron panels completed, so here are some pics of the progress.
Things aren’t getting done as fast as I wish, but I have to take care of some spring yard chores, or else we’ll never get out to our cabin this summer.

That’s the trials, and tribulations of having two places to live.

Working on Hummingbird panel. There will be two Hummers, & two Roses.

It got warm enough, so I was able to carve outside.

I got some help from the neighbor cat.

A close look at a rose that needs some cleaning up before it’s complete.

Dick, this is so beautiful. I continue to be in awe of your work.

Barb, love the cat pix. hahah.. isn’t that just like a cat—needs to be “ON” whatever it is that you are looking at!!

Looking good, Dick. Like all artists, you make it look easy, but those of us that have attempted carving know the truth.

Very nice – looking forward to seeing the completed table, Dick.

Great work as always Dick! Envious of your multi-talents, all of which you do so extremely well. Very excited to see the finished piece. Thanks for taking the time to share the “stages” with us.

Now, Dick all this time I thought you were doing these carvings, but you’ve slipped up and now we know it has been the cat all this time. LOL. Great carving! I’m patiently waiting to see it finished.
