    Dang, I'm going to get typer's cramp thanking you all


    Rodster, Thank You, ben for posting since '09 & have never sold a thing, but now that I've made it into one of Rodster's great ballards, it has all been worth it.

    Glen, Thank You, His brother is going to look about the same (I hope))

    Phil, Thank You, It is probably a little of both. I use a Mastercaver Micro-Pro with a 1/16" to cut my original image onto the wood and it burns as it cuts, then taking pictures from my carving bench I have lighting on either side and above.

    Bill, Thank You, I was having a problem with the way it was looking, I had read someway that going deeper sometimes takes care of the problem, I was a little apprehensive, but I keep easing it down and finally quit.

    Kris, Thank You

    Sappy, Thank You, I think the Long Bros a second cousins.

    Herb, Thank You

    Merle, Thank You, Your suggestion will be coming up

    Randy, Thank You

    You all be most kind with your remarks & suggestion

    Hi Joe , Great Carving and Detailing , probably one of your Best . I still think if you would Paint over the Burnt Lines then Antique it would take it a Step Higher and put more Life into Him . Just saying my Friend . Merle

    If this fellow had a pitch fork next to him, he would like he stepped out of "american gothic"

    Joe - Your Long Bros are lookin' good! Is some of the shading from the way you illuminated the carving for the photo?

    Could it be that our carving interests are converging? This is my present project:

    Have to Agree with Rodster Joe. Totally nailed it mate, That has got to be the saddest looking dude on the planet Either that or he just sucked on the souest lemon on the planet.

    Think you have found your niche mate.

    This one is just classic.

    I don't recall JoeB posting carvings in the last year or so.
    I suspect he just sells them; he's probably rolling in dough.

    'Long Bros' isn't a youngster; he seems very old.
    But my gosh, I think this carving might win Joe a gold.

    I don't know how Joe'd cope; with winning a prize.
    He's seems very modest; he's that kind of guy.

    So I'm taking this opportunity to pat Joe on the back.
    If I had some money; I'd buy him a plaque.

    I'm calling this on Long Bros #1

    Saw a drawing by Kevin Keele the other day, then I saw another similar by a different artist, so I'm going to be calling them Long Bros #1 & Long Bros #2.
