  • "Sam"

    I won this rough out of Jon Nelson's in a carving contest at the RWR in Lebanon, TN a couple of years ago. The challenge was to carve something from a block of wood in 40 minutes that was anything holiday related except a Santa. I carved a leprecaun and got second place. I believe Dale Kirkpatrick got first with a carving of Uncle Sam, so it was kinda funny that I got this as second prize! I like the way the flag turned out on this one. Thanks for looking!

            Great looking piece. Particularly I like the way the flag flows.
            Color is top notch.

                  Nice work Mike, I do remember that competition and do think you are right about Dale. I to can see Jons style in your piece as well, the shoes mainly, funny huh?

                              Nice carving Mike. Several have already said it but it bears repeating. You did a heck of a job with the folds of the flag. Lar
