A carving I made for my grandparents. It took me about 2 hours and took a nasty bite out of my ring finger but nothing a duck tape/paper towel bandage couldn’t fix. I will have to remember to pick up my carving glove next time I’m home.

I also realized that in the background of this picture you can see the beginning of my dragon carving.

This is another beautiful carving. I have always had a great deal of respect for woodworkers, such as yourself, who have been gifted with the talent and ability to produce works such as this.
