These are really nice. I’d cut off half my fingers trying to carve something like this. Very good workmanship.

Put a chain on it and i’d wear any of em around my neck. Looks great Jim. You must like a challenge. Never known anyone who carves iron wood. Guess that’s why the small pieces don’t break. Bet it’s hard on cutting tools. (power? Hand?) just curious.

Great carvings Jim. Those little doodads aren’t as simple to carve as the word doodads implies! Especially the IRON WOOD!!!!!!!!!!!! Great finesse.
