    Thanks for all of the kind remarks. My uncle, the youngest of grandad's children just saw the photo now he is emailing it all over showing it off. That is what makes it all worthwhile. Steve

    Good job! As a young man, there are few character lines to bring out so you did a very good job in converting the photo to a workable pattern.

    A Portrait of Grandad in the Navy

    Hi Everyone, here is a portrait of my grandad when he was in the navy. It is the only picture that I have known to exist of him as I never knew him. He passed away years before I was born. I thought that it would be a good tribute to capture this in wood. I will see how the family reacts to this one. Any comments or suggestions are welcomed as always. Steve

    Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

    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...
