The first thing you will need to do is turn up your volume and listen to Tanya Tucker’s hit song, Rain Man. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIlEFK0KZ6s.
Now that the mood is set, sit back and look at the pictures of my idea of what the Rain Man might have looked like.
Woods are all hardwood and a lot of bench cleaning makes up the build. Russian Lipa was used for carving.
Inspired by Tanya, carved and built by Doug

I love all the detail you put into your projects Doug! I can see that each detail has so much thought put into it.
And what’s a person to do without a little inspiration, she can sure sing that song!
Thanks for sharing your Awesome work!

Folks, your comments are too nice…... The Inspiration I have gotten from L/J’s has also been great. Thanks to ya’ll. I hope Tanya sees it, she is the real artist. NO, it’s not for sale.
