another great piece.
There’s an orchard just down the road from us and there are a ton of branches lying in the middle of the rows – waiting.. just waiting.
Want me to pick you up a tree or two??

Excellent as always.

Dick, I’m curious, you have been showing us a lot of project recently using Native American images. Was this a phase of your wood art? Do you still do these?

Having spent more than half of my life in North America, I don’t ever recall there being any objection from First Nation Peoples (I think that the correct PC term in Canada) in reproducing likenesses of people. I believe that this is strictly taboo amongst Australian aboriginals.

I guess it was a phase. I’m into one phase after another. I can’t stick to one thing.

Cool one Dick. What size diameter would you guess that big part of the stick is? I’m guess at 2.5”, am I close?

I would not have considered using Apple Tree for a carving. Now, there is another wood I can’t toss in the wood stove after seeing your inspiration and work. You and Frank are getting me to the point that I would rather be cold, than burn a stick of wood anymore!

Thanks Mark
Your right on the money, 2 1/2”, If you do any woodturning, it’s great also.

Thank you Wayne,
That shuffle is kind of a nice way to kill some time.

Great carving, Dick. How long does it take for you to create such art?

Thanks Sawhorse,
Os, I never usually keep tract of my time on my carvings, because I do it for my own pleasure. I have never sold any carvings, but have given them as gifts.
I estimate that about 8 & 10 hours for this carving.
