I carved an image of Abe Lincoln in basswood. The carving was given as a wedding present to an admirer of Old Abe. He and his wife enjoyed getting it.
The carving was done in the Rick Harney style. I saw an article about him in Chip Chats magazine a few years ago and he inspired me to create this work. The young guy in the picture is my son in law. I introduced him to woodcarving by letting him help me with Lincoln’s hair. I hope he will take up the hobby one day. It was his friend who received the carving.
