I have been in woodworking most of my life. I grew up learning the trade from my father. I served in the Marines from '85-'89. Got out of the habit of woodworking for 15 years. When I married my second wife 12 years ago, I got back into it. I have a small shop in the front room of a 16X80 mobile home. I just started carving in 2010. Carrying on the legacy of my Grandmother, who began carving in her 80's
I make games, birdhouses, cars and trucks, and other misc. stuff.

This is my first attempt at designing my own carving. I used a carving I had sitting on my entertainment center as an idea. The following pictures are the result. Just need to put a final finish on it. I call it The Holy Mother.
