carved from a piece of redwood driftwood. One of the nice things about living in such a wood rich area is that I have never bought a piece of wood for a project. If it costs money, I’m not doing it. It definitely sends your brain working in all diferent directions looking at the pile and figuring out what to do with it. It sure is fun!

Nice work. Great eye for turning wood into great carvings. A true artistic gift. Keep ‘em coming.

Nice carving and can’t beat the price.

Cool project…......I hear you…......I’m trying to find wood, in my large pile of pieces, that I’ve been saving and figuring a project around what I have…...........can’t justify buying, when I just have to get those creative juices flowing….......................Always been a proponent for working with what you’ve got…..........

Beautifully done! The best things in life don’t always cost money! Just time and TLC.
