The first thing you will need to do is turn up your volume and listen to Tanya Tucker’s hit song, Rain Man.
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.
