Very nice. I'd like a closer view if possible.

Thanks for all the nice complements. I did this for a living for 28-30 years but now I just do it once in a while so I don't loose the ability. Don't think I could make a living by carving anymore especially at todays economy. Too old and slow anymore. If anyone is interested I will put my home page up to look at.

Very nice work. Can I assume you are powercarving most of this? And you're right about the economy. I am a carver too, have done some gunstocks, but prefer the woodspirits and birds and such. You should try doing some carving on the end of a deer antler. That's pretty interesting.
