  • Some lapel pins/broaches

    I haven't been able to do much carving lately, playing nurse and housekeeper while my wife heals and recovers from a fall around New Years where she broke her back. I have learned that I suck as a nurse and am a poor cook, I do know how to clean efficiently. I have made a few little lapel pins or broaches to keep my hand in and one figure, an Old Fisherman. The figure is in Basswood and stands about 7" tall, the pins are about 2' and in various woods: Apple, Maple and Cherry. Not much to show for a few months, and my ship model is still awaiting attention, but it will be there when I have the time.

    I do get in to check on the site most days, and am happy to see that folks are keeping busy.

    You do not have permission to view this gallery.
    This gallery has 4 photos.
    Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, let them pipe: "Up Spirits" one more time.

    Well Bob, two out of three ain't bad, (caregiver, cook and spiritual support) but. heck, you shouldn't be ashamed of those carvings, they look pretty darned good for someone with major restrictions in their life not to mention having to satisfy your significant other!

      At least she has a lot of help, even if you question your skills...carvings look good and I'm always partial to those old fisherman figures. Nice and the painting on those pins is very good for such small pieces.

      Hope your wife recovers quickly for her benefit and yours.

        I sure hope your wife recovery is speedy, But I guess WE fellows get to do all the good things around the house, it really makes us appreciate the time we get to carve. Wishing the best for the two of you.

            I'm sure that you're a fine nurse and that your wife wouldn't want anyone else there beside her! When most of us married we promised to stand by our mates, "for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love, cherish, and obey, till death us do part." No one said anything about only being there for "fair winds and calm seas!"

              And no one said anything about wood carving either! (Geez someone wasn't thinking when they wrote those vows!)

                You're a better caregiver and carver than you give yourself credit for, Bob. I'm sure your wife appreciates everything you're doing for her and even with the shortage of time your carving hasn't suffered.

                  Think? Wood Carving? .... How can anyone think with their future father-in-law standing behind you with a shot gun?

                    LOL If it were so true. I was a young sailor, she was a nurse, we wed in the middle of a snowstorm in her hometown with my best man and usher shipmates too drunk to help me shovel out the church so we could get in. Well, not really drunk, but a good glow on! Nothing like Pusser (Navy) Rum to stave off the cold. Lord that was over 46 years ago and I remember it like yesterday.
