Father Frost

I got an email a few weeks ago from a lady in Indianapolis who had seen this small carving I did about a year ago. Except she wanted it in blue...she collects blue Santas or Father Frost. I was happy to oblige her! This is aversion of a Mike Shipley design..... a few extra doodads and other differences, and definitely wouldn't consider it to be very flat-plane! But it was fun and I believe she likes it. Thanks for looking!

Deer Hunter Cane

This is a cane made completely with materials from my father-in-law's farm in East Texas. Its is a tall cane with a deer antler handle. The butt-cap is Bois-darc (osage orange) and the shaft is cedar. I like to shape and paint the epoxy glue so that it looks like part of the antler. Thanks for looking!

A Boot for Ashley

A guy from the carving club has been coming over and getting some tips on carving in the round. He has mainly carved reliefs and wanted to pick up a few tips. So we started with a simple boot. I decided to fancy mine up a bit and make a toothpick holder after we finished that night. My daughter decided she might want it, but it needed to be painted and she wanted red (perhaps in honor of the Arkansas Razorbacks?). So here it is! Thanks for looking!
