This one is only painted and not done in a 3D fashion. Customer was a sweet tea drinker and professed hater of slavery and racism. Good person she is.

A nice job on an American history piece!

You are not really anything just to like the artistry of some thing!

Thank you so much for this comment. I agree with you totally. Go to the comments on that last cutting board I posted and read what that guy said.

Nice sign. Where do you get all the tobacco sticks. I had a guy gave me about a hundred back in 2003, they were all walnut.

Wow walnut sticks proved that farmer worked too hard to worry about his walnut being used for sticks!! Well we raised “baccer” and I’ve always had a supply. It is dwindelling now though. But where I live there are stacks in every other barn you see just about. And I know everybody almost. I can always get them. But the same effect can be gotten by just getting some straight boards or pallets that have weathered a little and ripping narrow strips. Cut them to length and take sticks from different boards to lay next to one another to produce the unevenness. Did I make sense with that??

“I know you are but what am I” wasn’t a good comeback in first grade. It still isn’t.

If it isn’t racist at the very least it is rude and inconsiderate. American history (or any other history) isn’t inherently good. Dark chapter, evil deeds.

Why didn’t you object to the UK coffee table? It’s obviously a basketball piece. And Adolf Rupp, whose name even adorns that table, was steadfastly opposed to recruiting black players and was very open and public about it.
What if I made a university of Mississippi flag? Would it be considered rude you by you since the school refused to end its segregation of classes and allow black people an equal chance at an education? It took an order for a national guard intervention just to let the single black student enroll. Even then the university took few steps on its own to ensure the safety and equal treatment of black students.
My opinion is that you would not be offended even though both of these symbols might remind some people of a darker time in history. If those people said it bothered them, should people stop displaying ole miss flags or supporting Kentucky basketball? Of course not! But why not? Are their feel goods not as important as yours? The reason is that it would be rediculous to stop displaying the one miss flag because of that. If the school still refused to enroll black students, or if southern states still allowed slavery, I would be one of the ones who would have to state my disgust. But that flag no longer represents an anti black institution and the confederate flag no longer represents a collection of southern states that support slavery. It represents a collection of southern states that supported slavery multiple generations ago.
It now represents a lifestyle and people who only want to own a front porch swing, shade trees, and quart jars full of sweet tea.
When a person up and accuses another of racism and propagating hate because of something, then doesn’t also express opposition to other symbols, etc which represent similar views, situations, actions, periods or whatever, then to me it seems pretty obvious that he was not really offended in the first place. Some people have to object to something or they’re not comfortable. I think it makes them feel alive or gives them the feeling of authority or a louder voice. In fact it makes their opinion irrelevant unless they attack all the symbols that have ever stood for whatever it is they dislike.
Did it not ever occur to you that before the union moved to oppose the ownership of slaves, the ownership of slaves was not opposed by the union? Is it rude to display the flag of the United States Of America? Maybe the in style thing nowadays is to protest, or sue, or etc etc . The confederate flag did not represent slavery anyway. Anyone who says it did is depending on someone else’s knowledge for some reason instead of learning for themselves.

What you meant by I know you are but what am I is one I can’t figure out.

Rude and inconsiderate? If you fart someone is going to say you are rude and inconsiderate, whether or not they smelled or heard it. But if it’s found out that you actually went so far as to really truly fart, somebody will get their panties in a twist about it…and when one gets twisted panties, before long secretly and silently farting will cause protests.

Very nice looking work. That rustic feel just exudes from the piece. I like your work.

Don’t mind the haters. The battle flag is not my cup of tea, my wife, who is from Texas wants one for the same reasons you mention: pride in the values of the old South not to include slavery. Her people did not own slaves and did not believe in slavery.

The thing I mentioned before on your previous post is that you cannot control how someone interprets a symbol. All you can do is to say what that symbol means to you. Others can either accept you at your word or they should just move on.
