  • Crum...this is going to hurt

    THIS IS MY 218 TH CARVING AND OF THE 218 THIS BY FAR WAS THE HARDEST TO CARVE. I HAVE EVEN STARTED TALKING TO MY SELF BECAUSE OF THIS CARVING. WHEN DRILLING A HOLE THROUGH THE LEG TO STRENGTHEN IT , IT BLEW APART SO HAD TO REPLACE IT . I FIRST HAD THE ARM HOLDING THE HAT IN THE AIR....IT COVERED PART OF THE FACE SO I CUT IT OFF AND LOWERED IT (ARM ) IT COVERED SOME DETAILS ON THE CARVING I THOUGHT WAS IMPORTANT. SO i CUT IT OFF AGAIN ,SO THE TAIL GOT TO BE HELD. BUT I FOUND OUT IT MADE THE COWBOY MORE SOLID.

    Fantastic carving Jim; with all those details it's little wonder you started talking to yourself . I see from your post that you keep track of how many carvings you have done, but do keep track of the number of hours you would put into something like the above carving? Just curious............

      Soggy,
      I had a lot of things going on in my life while carving the cow boy and bull. So could not spend the time wanted on carving . but this one took about 2 months, that's not every day some times I could not work on it for a week or so.
      Thank you for your comments.

        that is a great carving. It has lots of movement.
        The face on the bull was great. Lots of good things on this carving.

          With all the trouble you experienced working on this carving you ended up with a master piece. Love it . Ginny

                Jim,

                This is a most excellent carving. I love the carving, the story, the presentation. It came together really good.

                Safe Carving and God Bless,

                  Great carving. I especially like the bull and the cowboys expression -- and a lot of other things too.

                        Well done. Great action and expression. By the way, it's ok to talk to yourself. Arguing with yourself is also ok..provided you win the argument.

                              this. It turned out a real beauty and I can just feel all the action of this piece.
