Like this one, it is terrific. How long would something like this take you to complete.

Gosh, Bob, On the Coon,
Working full time on a project like that, would take a couple of weeks forme at the least. (ie: Full Time = Between honey-do’s, fishin’, must do’s, that’s broke etc..)
I didn’t have a drawing to go by, just an idea and a few pix’s of coonsand some wood. I was working for a living at the time of that whittlin’, and it probably took a couple of months to complete. I didn’t set a schedule for completion on this piece, so it was off and on whittlin’ as the lets go shopping alternative would allow….(Don’t Let Her See This)
These carvings are all under 4 inches (100 mm) high, with the exceptionof the “Native American”. which is approx. 8 inches high.
(not too good on metrics)

I could do that. Well maybe in my next life when I have some artistic talent. Very nice.

I think I met that Rascal in my Have-A-Heart trap last spring…. How’d he get over to your place :^)
