Well my girlfriend is a natural carver. For some of us it’s been a long road to learn and try to get this carving thing right. I have to say from the day she picked up a chisel she has been a natural. This carving is her second carving. I posted the first a few weeks ago. She’s going to be an amazing carver if she keeps up with it. This was carved in maple. She used wire for the antenna.

That is an awesome piece of work. Yep, she’s a natural. Her first was good. This one’s great. How’s she gonna top this?

Hi Kieth;

When do we get to meet this talented lady? Should she not be a lumberjock as well?

Great job.
