      Wow, Carver_boy!!! That message was hard to read in blue. Guess I am just getting old and can't see very well anymore. Tulip wood is great and especially for carving tulips.

        That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on.

        I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

        Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
