    Greetings, Have been scrolling for about 5 years. I am a transplanted Minnesotan now living near Tulsa via St Louis. Six more til retirment then back to Gods country. I posted a few of my projects several weeks ago but got busy and was not able to do any more posting. Lots of great projects and patterns out there but so little time. Hopefully this winter I can get busy again.

    Ahhh So you're going to retire to North Dakota too. Nice to have you here for now though.

      Actually I was stationed up there twice in 4 years. Minot wasn't so bad.

        hi John, from your comments I take it you were in the Air Force, I never had the pleasure of being stationed at Minot spent most of my 20 yrs at Langley

            Welcome. I listen to the Prairie Home Companion out of Minessota every Sunday while I truck around Ohio. Sounds like a great state full of Norwegians. Is that true, or are they just making fun of themselves? OH..and do they really have a giant bass with a man inside that makes it move and talk to you ?

                I spent a couple of Februarys In Minot during my 11 years of AF. I remember the "Snert" coming from Canada with a wind chill of minus 80
                That certainly was an experience I won't forget. But the girls, ah the girls

                Snert is a mixture of snow and dirt from the fields blowing ata high rate of speed.

                  Langley has some of the worst winters I ever experienced, I worked the flightline on jets and when those northerns came down it sure made life miserable out in the open winds gusting to 25mph plus with driving rain sleet the snow brrrrrrrrr

                    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...
