Ok, first let me say, I did not make this – a good friend of mine did. I found a similar one he made on the internet and he was kind enough to make me a personalized one! I just thought I would share this with everyone, cause it is such a special piece and so wonderfully done. My granddad was a wood turner and is the reason I am now a wood turner. My granddad has been gone 20 + years and he would have gotten such a kick out of this carving. I built a display case for this piece, it will be cherished!!

I think I kinda sorta resemble that character, as do a few others on this site. A wonderful character that
deserves a special display case, and he might just get copied a few times. Thank you for sharing, and your
granddad just might be chuckling over your shoulder.

That is so awesome. People have some creativity and skill. Update with some pics of the case too when you get a chance.
