Not everyone has room for or can afford a full sized war shirt so I decided to try a smaller one, possibly just over 1/3 full size. The little moccasins are 1.75” tall. I enjoyed not having to laminate and lug such a big chunk of wood around but it still took me about 80 hours to complete. While it did sell, it did not fetch 1/3 the price of the larger ones.

Jordan; Good to see you back. Awesome as always my friend. I might have to try some of those moccasins, they are great. They remind me of your shoe tutorial.

Jordan, they should have gotten better prices- they are as much if not even more valuable than the full-sized pieces. Your work is breathtaking.

You just blow me away Jordan. Not only the quality of your carving but the reverence you show to the history you recreate. Your subject matter is evocative of a long passed time and your skill honours that past.

This piece is absolutely beautiful. What you do has always fascinated me and I consider your work so creative, artistic, and full of exquisite craftsmanship. This piece is no exception.

Jordon,

Looks like you’re keeping busy/ Everyone here has said what I was thinking. Paul said it well.

Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Thank you so much friends. yes I have been away but you all know the consumption of time that wood takes. And of course in the meantime I have been doing a lot of bone skulls so they are not Lumberjocks appropriate.

I appreciate each and every one of your comments!!!

Jordan, mind blown. Bone Skulls? Blog. Appropriate? We all want to see them. LJs appropriate? Popular demand. Your public cries out.

Texas Long Horn Mark, not wood though so it doesn’t belong here.
