    Welcome! I grew up here in Central Kansas...my mother and father were children of Immigrants from the Volga Region of Russia...we were 'Volga Deutsche'...so I grew up in a bi-lingual household. Neither my mom or my dad could speak English when they started grade school in the late 1920's.

    I grew up with the wonderful heritage and customs passed down from my grandparents and parents...I will turn 60 this summer, and sadly, those of us that can still understand and speak the dialect will be extinct in another generation!

    Good luck with your carving!

    Hey Claude, I haven’t so far since Oberammergau is located in southern Germany and I live quite far away. But southern German carvers are known in Germany for their carvings, especially religious/spiritual ones that are found in churches. I like that carving style but I admire the “American” style a lot too especially the caricatures!

    Welcome and one advantage to wood carving is it can be done in a very small area or a large one...just small areas reduce the size you can do. Nice carving.

    GOT A QUESTION? Ask it, I kind of compare the place to a book of knowledge. Good to have a new younger member to balance the scale for all of the older splinter makers
