Ms Debbie, if someone can’t get a little humor and giggle about something, what a dull life, Huh?
I think if she had went any further, she would have fell out on the floor when she came unwound. S/F

I want more detailed pictures :) it looks great. Can you put a few pictures of your shop and the tools you use (in the Shop section if you get a chance)?

Wish I had a shop left, the hurricanes did away with everything. I use no power tools, never did anyway. The carving I do is done with a little gouge and a pocket knife. I also use a fine pointed knife of sorts that I made out of a stainless steel butter knife. The pyrography-woodburning I do is accomplished with a constant temperature wal-mart special. I do make my own tips though. Semper Fi!

I think you should write a book, because this is one of “THE” best examples of why we woodwork. There are few select pics that I copy to my screensaver of ww pics, this is now the latest and greatest. You have no idea the effect that your piece had on me, “like fuel to a fire”. A simple note saying “nice piece, or i like it” doesn’t do it justice. ( no offense to those comments above, but I HAVE to tell you so) I was a corpsman with the marines and survived nearly being being killed in Beirut by mere chance of a set of orders. The guy that took my place didn’t make it back. My respect for marines has run deeper ever since. After reading your explanation of your carving and that you are (“still”) a marine, it made me come to attention. After retiring I didn’t know what to do with myself, I had no real hobbies, other than running away from my pain and working myself too hard. I found woodworking and now my therapy has healed my wounds. So thank you. and I salute you. and to all those who gave so much so we could enjoy our freedom.Bradford

Thanks Bradford, Don’t know for sure if I rate such a rucas, but I know one thing everyone is unique in their own way, thanks again. I and plenty of the members appreciate your service to our great country. It takes us all to preserve what I call “Freedom of Freedom”, civilian populace should get and stay involved.
Rather bend and put my forehead to the ground to as many pieces of wood of any discription everyday that was put here for us to minipulate. Thanks! Semper Fi Brother>
