    One of my other hobbies I want to get into is model railroading. Woodland Scenics makes products that make realistic water.

    Here is a link to the water section on their website:

    This is an Arlene Zomer pattern from Carverswoodshop, and I think he turned out pretty good! Pete was carved while I was recovering from my back surgery, but is just now getting...

    replied to Gene's secret

    Mark,
    Good for you! The quicker you can get off the pain pills the better! As a veteran of two back surgeries since August of 2017, I shed the pain pills within 10 days of each surgery. Made me feel hazy and woozy all the time, and frankly, the pain wasn't so bad when I wasn't on the pills....

  • Boredom Recipe? No wood, no carving tools!

    Got a Foredom for Christmas last year from my bride. Got it from Old Texas Woodcarvers...Dallas sold the business, but I would bet they still have the same great prices!

    I would hesitate to buy a used one. Would think you wouldn't...

    Thanks, everyone! Rod, love your prose, man!

    I didn't quite like how the snowflakes turned out, so I landed here at work early and started over on it...(am working at our board table over the lunch hour!)...sanded off the flakes, and am only putting 4 on...figure less is more!...

    Beard is 1/2 snow white, 1/2 vintage white, with one drop of granite gray. Trim is snow white. Gloves are straight, un-thinned black. Under...
