Greg the Great
Doesn’t hesitate
To sing a song
of Praise

He plays and sings and
Makes the trees dance
They’re influenced by his
Positive Ways

All that surrounds him
Is all that Greg is
The happiest creature
Ever known

Love is Greg’s answer
The Mighty tree dancer
Reaps the fruits of the
Seeds he has sewn.

I made this carving in a piece of Maple burl. It is 13 1/2” tall, 6 1/2” wide and 1 1/4” thick. You can find this carving for sale in my shop

Much love!

Great job Josh,
I can even hear him singing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
