    If possible, I like to conjure up a story to go with my carvings or at least carve the theme of the carving so others can make up their own story.

            I like the choice of fir branches and the candy cane vis-a-vis the usual holly leaves and berries. Beautiful work as usual.

              What can I say but outstanding work as always, Millard! Is the lettering painted, carved or burned? Very neatly done.

                Thanks, Bob. The lettering was carved using a print font transferred to the wood by old fashioned carbon paper. 50/50 wax was was allowed to settle in the letters and dry over night. I think that it looks burned or I have tried to make it look so.

                  At first glance, I thought it was a toilet seat, blicked my eyes (they are going bad ) a couple time and saw an another one of your great carvings.

                    Talk about capturing an expression!... with the way you have " raised" Santa's left eyebrow, and ended the the statement with " huh?" Tells the real story. Hope I never find myself in that situation " gulp!".....
                    another beautiful one , thanks for sharing.

                          Millard, please explain "50/50 wax," and how you used it. Beautiful work, by the way...love the raised eyebrow!

                            Watco makes some liquid wax in various shades. I use 50% dark wax and 50% natural wax for an antiquing effect on most of my carvings.
