In addition to the carving projects I unloaded earlier in the week, I will share some of my
Pyrographys. I burn God’s Creatures and enjoy the detailed study necessary for
each one. I took two hours of informal instruction from Bob Hardin, Coker Creek, Tennessee.

I can burn a picture of your pet, if you are interested.

Bob is a master at carving elk horns, antlers of all types, using them as handles in the
outstanding knives he designs and makes. He burns leather, making buckskin vests, coats, etc.
with animals and bird designs in addition to his wood burnings. He is also exceptional in beadwork
and designs. Bob is in his eighties and still going strong carving unusual walking canes and
hiking sticks from found wood from the mountains around Coker Creek.

Bob inspired me to explore my creative talents, which has given me some of the most enjoyable days I have ever had.

I have just this week started carving my first fireplace mantel from Douglas Fir. I will share it upon completion.

-- Charlotte, Tennessee. A toothpick or a forest...I see a project in each.

It sounds like you are really enjoying your crafts (as in “craftsmanship”)
