    No advanced math here, considered that it had two areas that required repairs to complete and they were far from hidden then just pick a number and asked for it.

    Since my carvings are on the larger size, I’m kind of at a point of selling, quitting or putting a row of shelves down the center of the living room. So if I can keep myself in wood, golf balls and fly rods by selling I’m in.

    Selling your first work is always exciting means other people enjoy your work enough to put money on it. It helps major in making more challenging works in the future. Happy for you!

    It's a fine piece of work. Shows off your imagination?
    Selling carvings will keep the clutter off the bench.
    Thanks Brian,

    When I started carving my plan was to give my carvings to friends and family. That plan changed when I realized some didn’t really appreciate the work. I came to think by buying a piece they are demonstrating their appreciation.

    I sign and date before the last two coats of finish.

    Thanks Bill
    You know as I decided to sell I thought I’ll just do another and likely it will be a little bit better.

    Sold piece for $350 don’t no if it’s good but I’m comfortable with it.
