  2. Hi Mike. I am still working that out. Are you having a table? What is your area of greatest interest in carving?

    Hi John. No, I won’t have a table. As far as my biggest interest in carving, I am still working on that. I find that Ii like relief carving a lot. I have done a couple of fish that sort of look like bluegills. I have tried a few Santa Clauses, a couple of Hobbit Houses, and have done several of Gene Messer’s Hand Held Crosses. Hopefully will get to try some cottonwood bark carving soon. Hope we can chat a bit on Saturday.
