“Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man,
Tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can.
And when it’s time for leavin’,
I hope you’ll understand,
That I was born a ramblin’ man.”
Allman Brothers Band 1973

This is from a Gerald Sears rough out and is about 11 inches tall. He was fun to carve and I got to use almost all of my knives and skews to get into the deep areas in his collar and coat. He turned out pretty good! He’s for sell, over at my store . You might check it out, even if you’re not wanting to buy, since you can use the zoom feature to get a really close look at the carving! Pretty neat! Thanks for looking!

Wonderful carving Mike. So well done it’s hard to not think he put that coat on himself.

Luv the Allman Bros. I also quickly had Marshall Tucker on my mind. This gent fits the bill perfectly. You’re the carve master Mike.

Mike P., Day Kind.. I take off a hat, I delighted. Very much it is pleasant to me and I envy a little. If there was an opportunity, I would go in recruits. Thanks.

Mike, I may have said this before, I can’t recall ! (I turned 70 a few months back and sometimes have to shove my hands in my back pockets to remember where I left my ass !) I like your way of thinking and your carving/sculpture ! I have been busy these past few years building decks and screened porches an remodeling the inside of the house room by room. I am almost finished and ready to pick up my mallet and tools again (if I can remember where I put them!) Keep working/creating don s Havana Fl.
