Very nice, great attention to detail. Thank you for supporting fire fighters. (And I can understand the physics of this piece – that dolphin still amazes me.)

Hell yea. Murica!

What kind of tools are you using in your carving? The eagle is absolutely awesome.

Thank you all very much. I started out using a chainsaw to rough it out. Then moved to chisels. Pretty much I’ll use any tool I have or find myself needing. I’m still learning

What comes to my mind is the Georgia Southern Eagle mascot (named Freedom) taking command of the University of Georgia Bulldogs fire hydrant…I love it for that :)
