WORKS IN PROGRESS

For the past few years most of my carving time has been dedicated to commissioned pieces. I also try to keep a few carvings in the works that may be purchased. I will post new images of the carvings I've been working on as soon as they reach a somewhat finished stage in the process. I just turned 76 this year and I'm still actively carving. Hopefully I will have a few more years to work at this craft that I have come to enjoy. Please visit again from time to time to check out my newest creations. Thank you.
