Great detail, both carving and painting. And how appropriate to post on Christmas morning.

Thank Everyone , for the Kind word’s.I think my Wife,does a GREAT job.We have a customer who take’s a Santa every year. I think , this was his 14th one. it’s getting harder to come up with ,new idea’s every year.But i am THANKFUL for return customers . The kind of funny thing is, Another customer i made 22 Rabbit’s for. Raises Labrador’s,he gave me a Choclate lab as a christmas gift. But the Santa with the pup was already made.We had’nt told him about the,Santa and pup. So now we have a 7 week old pup named Rosco. p.s i guess i will be adding lab’s to my line of dog’s..

We want to Wish All of our,Friend’s A safe ,happy and prosperious NEW YEAR….GOD BLESS!!!!!!!!!
