    replied to carving demo
    Herb . . . It's great to hear about State Fairs and other happenings in far off places like Wyoming. I hope you enjoy yourself and have a good time. I've often wondered what UVAWYO stands for. WYO might be Wyoming, VA might be Veterans Affairs. That leaves U to tell us how to put it all together. ...

    Nice work, Mike. Yesterday, when I tried to view your carving, it was in so much shadow. I couldn't see it clearly. This morning, because I was charging the battery on the laptop, the computer showed more background light and I was able to see your figure to greater advantage.

    I have to

  • The best answer is I'm not sure. I snapped the first photo using a size that would upload to the forum, so 640 x 480 sounds right. When it uploaded, a question was asked? Do you want the picture to be small, medium or large. I chose medium and the first picture is what I got. I was pretty

    I had to look up Macro lens to see what it was all about. Apparently it is a lens designed to focus closely on a small object.

  • Thanks for the vote of confidence Herb!

    My ryhming days are over. These ryhmes can become obsessive. I write them, check them later to see if they are worded properly. Correct them. Then I look to see if people liked them. It was fun for a while, but I've run out of gas. They

    Yury says give up the ryhmes! Please!

    My little guy, Yury, was carved a few years ago. I've always liked his serious look. So when he told me to give up the ryhmes, I knew he meant business.

    Yury said, "Look Rodster, every dog has its day. But what was once kind of witty, is now a bit tired." Give it up! Get a life!

    replied to Golf ball in a cage
    I wonder what a golf ball would want with a cage.
    It's not surprising it balked and reacted in rage.

    You're lucky the cage was only cracked and discarded.
    Once the golf ball was out. You might be its target.

    These are just lovely! I like your work a lot.

    It sounds like you have a little woodcarving business down east. Good for you.

    There are so many interesting people on this website. So it's nice to hear a little snidbit about their activities.

    Thanks for your comment. I wondered if hands hanging down could be varied a bit, to make them seem a little more natural and attractive. A slight bend at the elbow and then the hand showing at the waist. Only one way to know. I'll give it a try and see.

    Your joke is amusing. The Brits would say 'droll'.
    How 'bout more funny one-liners? If you're now 'on a roll.'

  • Oh by gee, by gosh, by gum, by golly.
    Your carving's hat and face are darling, but not jolly.

    I'm glad he is a classic, he seems somewhat fantastic.
    But best of all, he looks a bit socratic.

    Doug Outside Figures Continue!

    I've done two more 'Doug Outside' figures (SEE BELOW) and I'm more or less pleased. But their arms look a little rigid and their button holes are askew.

    I've done hands in pockets before, but I'm not entirely pleased with that either. I think I will carve my next 'Doug Outside' figure with

    What a great story. You made my day. When I hear a story like that, I just sit down and think how perfectly it was expressed. It was complete, succinct, funny, surprising and thoughtful. I was wondering what BIF meant? Now I know.

    Brother Amos makes the case!

    Brother Amos carves flat plane. It has sharp angles and cuts.
    Not for him caricature carving. The compulsive sanding is nuts.

    The Flat Planer Forum could do with some viewers.
    All in good time. First it needs some more doers.

    replied to family picture
    A carving arrived with no words in tow.
    Some enquiries suggest it came from a bro.

    One far away and quite silent to boot.
    Still the carvings are good, so who gives a hoot.

    Good question. I like to express myself in writing, but I haven't done much in the way of ryhmes until recently (other than the odd quip for my grandsons). I think I started with the ryhmes hoping to amuse some of you. My intuition told me that spontaneity and humor often has a promising

    I'm glad you like the carvings and the ryhme. I find it interesting when carvers share a bit about their background and the area where they live. Your earlier disclosure of 'bib overalls', 'feed store' and 'Russell, Kansas' sketched a vivid and pleasing picture of prairie life, and your
