I Guess i am more of a production carver.I have been wood carving for 25 year’s.I do a lot of special order’s. I dont enter many contest,but a couple of year’s ago I won Grand Master at the Harlan Ky Festival Mountain Master’s. I am a member of the National Wood Carvers Asso. and Round the Mountain Southwest Va Artisan Guild. I am a cancer survivor, i have 2 Fantastic Grandson’s. when time allows my Wife and I enjoy rideing our motorcycle .( we wish we could do this more often) I used to enjoy hunting but now i just dont have the time. I am a amature prospector, havent found much but it’s still fun. I have always enjoyed nature. If i had a spectialy it would be carving hound dog’s. the craft festival’s we do are mostly at College’s we demonstrate Carving, and at a few trade school’s

Carving is one of those skills that I wish I had the patience and coordination to do. The ability to transfer what you see has also fascinated me. I’m with Mike, let’s see more.
