MichaelA and myself have been very busy lately. A total restoration on an old house for our friends here in SW Texas. We have a long way to go. I finished up my deer head gingerbread supports for the back porch and couldn’t wait to show them off. They are made from 4/4 rough sawn cedar to match the trim and beams. The pattern is by John Nelson I got from my book the best of Scroll Saw Wildlife projects. The siding is an 8 inch D-log pine. Progress is slow, it’s 110 degrees in the shade here!!!!! Can’t wait to finish up and head for the Rockies to cool off . At least till the snow flies then back here to Tx.

Really nice Terry.
Good to see you are progressing.
I know that with the talent in your family the result will be a real “home”.
