This is made of basswood with a walnut frame around it and the base is hichory. I had around 50 hours in it from the design to the final finish. I had at least 3 partial carvings of this to get just the right layout for a pleasing design. Enjoy.

Thank you guys, and girls, for such nice comments. It does take time to get a design just right.

I’m glad you’re always paying tribute to the One who gave this talent to you, it shows a great deal of humility and that is refreshing coming from someone so talented. Reminds me of Barry Sanders, my all time favorite. Beautiful work as always. jockmike
