The thing is, Eric, I am an impatient person – as well as being terrified that a gazillionaire might just knock at my door when I have no carvings on hand!!!!
Gary, the square is there just because I am making the shirt look like it is hanging on a decorative stick and because the moccasins will make it look like the collar is sqiushed on that side, I wanted to make sure it was straight on the other, LOL.
Greg, I was too tired to photograph the pile of chips I had but as I filled a garbage bag, I was sorry that I couldn’t somehow glue it back together into a useful board!!! Must be at least a good 2×4 there!
You guys are too much.

Jordan, You should call the supplier you got that chunch of wood from and tell him you thought you bought too much wood and ask him if you could return what you don’t use. LOL. This is so interesting seeing it begin to take form. So cool. Thanks for keeping us posted.

John, that’s funny – same as returning a lottery ticket if it doesn’t win!
