    Hi Merle,
    Man that was just plain rotten luck mate. Probaly didn't swear because you were too busy shedding tears. Still the shield will be a good save I think!!!!!

    Hi J.G. , when I told my Wife she said (I'll bet you Swore ) , and I said nope , I said ( Well I'll Be Darned ) . Ha,Ha. It was to Thin to be Glued , and besides when it hit the Floor it ended up in 3 small Pieces . Thanks for Commenting . Merle

    I like the way you deal with the breaking of of the wing.
    It's a creative way.
    But what about using a more natural Background.
    Maybe a set of mountains. I'm not sure if it works or if it will fit.
    Just an Idea.

    Such a shame you can’t glue it back on. I hope you had a good scream at least. I know I would!

    I can’t take credit for the frame Merle, I got it at a craft store my wife shops at. My frame making stills are poor at best.

    That would look good Merle. Have you considered puting it in a frame? A few yeaws back I did a walnut walking stick and carved a munk type head on the top. But there was a flaw in the stick I did not see untill it was carved. I cut the carving off the the top and put it in a frame.

    Hi Joe , you right but thinking it's just a Piece of Wood helps to Ease the Stress when you have a Problem Carving . Maybe that little Mishap will add a different Dimension to it and make it better . Hope so . Thanks Buddy . Merle

    A fellow told me once , any carpenter can make a mistake, but it takes a craftsman to be able to repair it...... same holds true for carvers and artists . Merle, I'd say you were master carver

    "Just a piece of wood" It is so much more than that. It is almost like saying your girls are just another person. I believe that there is a little part of our soul that goes into each carving we do. I'll get down from my soap box now

    Hi Sappy , I cut it to thin without realizing , I think by putting on the Stain it made the would soft and that added to the Mishap . Made me do some Thinking to save it . I think it will turn out OK , and again it's only a piece of Wood . Thanks for your Interest . Merle
