This is my first round carving. It is a standard cane I purchased at CVS Pharmacy. I used a pocket knife, x-acto knife and a small chisle for a Japanese woodcarving set. I then used a wood burning pencil followed by a couple coats of clear laquer.

That would be the First Cavalry Division which the 7th Cavalry is a part of.

nice job on your cane carving. I tried and all my carvings ended up in the scrap pill or file 13. I was in the artillary and ordnance while I was in the Marine Corps. Served in Vietnam in 1975 pulling all our guys out. seen a little action, but not much Special Security forces. over there. Came back and a year later put out on a medical discharge. Thank you for you service. A VERY SPECIAL HOLLER AND A THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. Any way very nice job on your carving.

Thank you for your service Jim, and BTW this is the only word burning/carving that has survived the burn pit. I might post my first carving. Its pretty amature though.
