I LOVE seeing the beginnings of works of art – especially yours since it is so hard to tell that it is made of wood, once its finished.

Thanks for sharing the progress.

Pre-orders are great, aren’t they? We love it in the wine business when customers are the same way. No inventory or holding costs.

I am anxious to see this piece completed. I am trying to imagine it from your sketch lines and I’m sure it’ll be even more fantastic than that!

No doordude, this is going to be a native war shirt – I’m not sure if you can make out the moccasins, feathers, breastplate, fringes etc. Yes, I have seen Chris Pye carvings, such masterpieces they are. My style is a little different. I must say, I have to keep taking breaks as it’s so intense holding that grinder – I’m always worried that the chain is going to snap and wrap around my neck – isn’t that how the horror stories go? Is it actually possible?

That’s why you get paid the big bucs, arthritis and chain saw scares.
