  • West Virginia Ghost Story

    Hi Everyone, here is a WV ghost story. Steve


    This happened about a month ago just outside a little town in the

    Low country of West Virginia, and while it sounds like an Alfred

    Hitchcock tale, it's real. A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a really

    dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm.

    Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he

    could hardly see his hand in front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car

    moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghost-like in the rain. It slowly

    crept toward him and stopped.

    Wanting a ride really bad, the guy jumped in the car and closed the

    door, only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel.

    The car slowly started moving and the guy was terrified, too scared

    to think of jumping out and running.

    The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve, still

    too scared to jump out, he started to pray and begging for his life; he

    was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into the marsh and he would

    surely drown, when just before the curve, a hand appeared through the

    driver's window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around

    the bend.

    Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time

    they reached a curve.

    Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and

    Jumped out of the car and ran to town.

    Wet and in shock, he went into a cafe and, voice quivering, ordered

    a cup of hot coffee, black, then told everybody about his experience.

    A silence enveloped the cafe and everybody got goose bumps when they

    realized the guy was telling the truth and was not just some weirdo.

    About half an hour later two guys walked into the cafe and one says

    To the other: "Look Bubba, there's that idiot who rode in our car when we

    Were pushing it in the rain.

    Thanks for that one. I actually laughed out loud and my dog stared at me as if I was nuts.

      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...

      I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

      I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

      First off how thick is the board you cut?
      When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
      that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
      for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...
