  • such a corker

    Hey ya'll! Been ages since I have been able to post here! Summertime seems to be the busiest time at our house! I thought we would get some time to hang out and relax over the summer...boy was I wrong! But in any case, I did receive my latest WCI issue day before yesterday and instantly took it to the shop with me! My brother in laws birthday was yesterday (Sunday) and as of Saturday I did not have a gift for him-so! Needless to say when I saw the article with Marc Gargac's amazing little cork heads It was perfect! As I was carving I kept thinking of the last time I used a WCI carver's patterns...I kept thinking of "Marc Gargac's elves" It was crazy! why am I thinking of those...? Then I saw the name on the page and realized this article was by the man himself! Very cool! Anyway! this is my Bottle stopper. Definitely more folk art than skill, but I am happy with the end result. This size head is perfect for practicing. I seem to be at a Plataeu of sorts...I really want to try all these ideas ...but...but but!!! It will happen,I know it!
    Thanks for another awesome idea Marc!

            Smiles like that are the ones that make giving a carving away worth it. Nicely done

                He looks like my Mt. Man's brother! The cork, not the dude in the picture.

                What a great gift Keoma. Aren't you glad you're a carver? Love the picture.

                        Great to see you again as well! Giving is my favorite part! It's what makes being a woodcarver so worthwhile! To be able to give someone something that you made that they really and truly like, well that's an awesome connection you don't just find anywhere!
