Nice carving and paint jobs.  I've never put a screw through my finger but I did get my beard caught in a high-speed drill years ago...twice!  :o

Ouch. Really looks great ohma2. Love the paint job to. I've been thinking about woodcarving for a couple years now. My dad gets a magazine I like to look at. I really need at least  three more hobbies.lol.

BJ,
What magazine is it that your dad gets?  Been looking for one dedicated to carving.  Thanks!

Chip Chats?  Chip Chats is the magazine of the The National Wood Carvers Association (of America).  Woodcarving Illustrated is really good; they used to send out a free taster copy once upon a time but not overseas anymore

Hawkdancer I'm not sure. I'll try to remember to find out. I think it might be woodcarving illustrated. I don't even know if he subscribed to it but he's had a couple.

First safety rule of meat cutters and woodcarvers is "Remember the safety glove". Rule  2 Is"It goes on the hand holding the work"! >:D. Trust me, I know!  Other good rule is  "keep fingers away from exit hole when drilling"!  Haven't drilled myself lately, but I laid open my finger making an end cap for a powder horn 3-4 years ago!  Heal well!  Good looking paint job so far!
