  • Great job Merle !...As others have said " she will love it and treasure it forever" .
    I also agree something carved and given as a gift brings more satisfaction than anything that a fellow can carve and sell.........sure we can all use a few $$$ , but money ain't everything...:roll...

  • I wish Minnesota wasn't so far from Nova Scotia,.... I'd give you an outlet...lol. it's my understanding that the best basswood comes from Wisconsin, but I presently carve wood that comes from Ontario/ Quebec and find it quite acceptable so I can't see why your basswood wouldn't be satisfactory....

    Mike; I can see why your dad would like it, you've packed a lot of detail into that carving, especially the burning of the feathers. As for the eyes, why waste your money buying them when you can carve them as good as you have done.

  • I think it's a good idea to ask if it would be all right to try your hand at doing someone else's idea. I'd be willing to bet 99.9% of the active carvers on here would not only give you permission, but most would be honored that someone liked their carving enough to want to do one like it. I've been...

    Jim , that's not a rant, that's just telling it like it is. It appears that you are much more of a gentleman than I would have been under those circumstances .
    It sounds as though you are reluctant to name them on here, but it just might save some other unsuspecting carver a similar situation...

  • Nice carvings Kerry,... and welcome to the forum, I wish my first attempts looked as good as yours. You'll find this to be a great group of carvers and more than willing to help a newcomer , all you have to do is ask and somebody will offer advice .

    18th Century Redneck

    A while back I was approached by a lady and asked if I would carve a bear hunter wearing period costume for her husbands birthday. Usually I flat out turn down any commissions, but this time I decided to give it a try since I know the fellow and shoot with him at the same blackpowder club every Labour...

    That's a very good likeness of a puffin Dave. We travel to Newfoundland every couple of years and see literally 1,000's of them every trip.

    Good job Herb!..... it's going to take a pretty good carving to beat that one.
    you mentioned Goodie , I remember when he was very active on this forum (about the time you and I joined) is he still carving and a member of this forum? I haven't seen any posts by him since the " big hack"....

    replied to It's Back To Santas!
    I gotta agree with Joe on that one, I'd be amazed if it didn't sell before the paint dried...
    Just love the way you are able to get that expression on Old Santa's face.

  • Eddy, that's a great idea! I'm sure your doctor will really appreciate that gift. I'm with Joyce 2011 on this one , I will be saving you idea/ pattern and doing a couple of these in the future.
