I’ve been thinking of taking up or at least trying carving. I’ve done a little on a chair that I made quite a while ago and some other things I’ve made, years ago. I made a sculpture in college way back in 1968. So it’s been a while, like I said. I hope I can relearn some very old skills.

Nice work mike give that carving a try. I’m glad some of my teachers didn’t have one of these.

Beautiful, Mike!!

Almost too nice to use! At least with that finish, bug guts will wipe off easily ;^)
