I am invited to a birthday bash at a friends farm and have only two days to think of a gift with the little cash in hand or rather no cash to spare. Hence I got the picture of her profile I had and made a wood carving of her head in relief with the timber I have in my work shop.
Hope she’ll like it, or even better,Hope it’s like her

Thanks David, You are always there, as a brother, a shoulder to lean on, and give us your ever sincerer heart felt support to whatever odd creation we put out.
The world needs more of your kind.

What a WONDERFUL gift! I’m sure she will cherish this more than anything you could have purchased from a store.

Very well done Tuanie. This is far better than anything you could have bought from the store or elsewhere. As David said, it is a gift from the heart and I’m sure will be the best gift she receives.

That is impressive. What sort of wood is it carved of?
