Blocks...

.... I now own a set of carving tools and a 2X2X12 block of linden wood..... next week's task will be to attempt to figure out what structure is hiding in the little block of wood and set it free...... but if I were a betting man, I'd say that the only thing that is hiding in my little block of linden wood is a smaller block of linden wood vaguely shaped like a toothpick.... buy, we shall see!....

... it's odd, really.... I've painted, sketched, and penciled, but I've never carved anything before.... and thus far my only foray into sculpting resulted in a 24-inch long copper lizard dangling haphazardly from my garage wall...

.... now all I need is a vice, a hacksaw, and a shitload of sandpaper....... hey, here's to a world of three dimensions..... .

You've got plenty of vices (don't we all?)

What you need is a vise.

Sign me up for a box of toothpicks.

There is a group of men here in Duncn that meet every other week to work on their carving. Some of these men have gotten very good. I have encouraged my son to join them, but he has not found the time yet. Isn't that the way of it - finding time. Carve away - maybe a pig.

I had a friend that carved duck decoys. He said it was simple, just carve away anything that doesn't look like a duck.

Sounds like the start of a grand tire thumper, to me. Carve it into the likeness of someone you despise and set your anger free. Heh heh.
