I tell everyone I talk with, that I’m waiting on that suitcase o money to land on my rooftop, or in my yard. If it happens, they’ll get a piece o the pie…........

Great carving and painting. Could have a lot of fun dropping a packet of these notes around or like the old game of money on a string. Thanks for sharing Pete.

Hi Pete, I’ve been wanting to try some carving, maybe combined with something made on the lathe. Seeing a stunning project like this moves it up on my ‘want to do list’.

I wonder how he does the painting of the bills, and the curves and corregations on the lids of the “cardboard box”. Those two efforts were just beyond anything I can imagine, less alone ever hope to perform.

The crazy part is it all looks to have been done with his mind’s eye, not to some pattern.
