  • Good Riddance Irene!!!

    So glad she's leaving. I kept thinking back to Isabel and was waiting for the "freight train" to roar through our yard like it did in Isable but it never came. But there are lots of trees down and at the peak 800,000 with no power. We never lost power or trees and there's no water in our basement. I do see that NJ and north are getting the flooding much worse than south. Please stay safe and keep us posted how you are doing. Only 3 more months of hurricane season to go.

      I will be cleaning up for days. Thank GOD there was no one hurt and no damage to to my house, cars, or shop. One of my oak trees did land on a neighbors boat house but it appears the building only suffered minor damage. The fun part will be clean up as the bulk of the tree is still 15' in the air.

      Glad you managed the storm OK.

          All safe and dry but my daughter(NJ) and eldest son(PA) are without power. He has a generator but she does not want to borrow the one he left with us Saturday morning 'just in case'.

            We fared well, just a few branches and leaves down, no water in cellar, and did not loose power. My sister, however lost power, and a tree fell in her yard. We are fortunate compared to some........thank God.

              Lots of green confetti all over the place. We only lost our cable, no tv ,internet or phone, No big deal. Lots of flooding and tree damage around us. We were fortunate

                All well here too. Just some water in the basement and some leaves and little branches on the ground.

                We did have one scary moment. We had two tornado warnings within about 5 minutes of each other.

                  Glad that you are all ok and Irenes left. Thankfully she didn't get up to full steam but I see there was loss of life. Our thoughts are with them and thier loved ones.

                    I have ridden out numerous hurricanes back in the day, glad this one didn't come close to its full potential.

                      Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                      Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                      My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                      I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                      Was it a good idea.....?...

                      Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                      The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                      I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
